Berry Cacao Acai Bowl
Ready to change up your breakfast routine? This Acaí bowl tastes like ice cream but healthy + with SO many benefits! If that’s not motivation to get up early + make a healthy breakfast, I don’t know what is [ ; ) ]. The recipe + toppings are customizable to suit your tastes + fit whatever you have on hand. Give it a try + let us know what you think!
- 1 Packet Unsweetened, Frozen Acaí Puree
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 1 Packed cup Kale
- 1 cup Frozen Blackberries [you can sub any type of berry you have on hand!]
- ½ cup Coconut Milk
- 1 tbsp Almond Butter
- 1 tbsp Cacao Powder
#1] Blend the kale + coconut milk until smooth. If you don’t have coconut milk, feel free to substitute almond milk or even coconut water! Once the kale is fully blended, add all remaining ingredients + blend until smooth! Getting the texture just right can be tricky until you have some practice! If you’ve blended the smoothie a little too long + it’s become thin — try thickening it up by adding more frozen banana or a few ice cubes!
#2] Pour the smoothie into a bowl + go wild with the toppings! When it comes to toppings — the possibilities are endless! This is what I used on my Berry + Cacao Acaí Bowl:
- Chopped Walnuts Nuts
- Goji Berries
- Cacao Nibs
- Almond Butter
Other topping ideas: Coconut Flakes, PB//Cashew Butter, Chia, Hemp Seeds, Protein Powder, Oats//Museli, + Fresh Fruit!
#3] Snap a pic, grab a spoon + ENJOY : )
