Healthy Breakfast: Acai Bowl Recipe

September 22, 2015

Make sure to freeze your banana the night before. I always keep chunks of frozen banana in the freezer for these sorts of occasions.
If you want a deeper purple colour in the acai base, add a handful of frozen berries. 
You want the base of the acai bowl to be thick and scoopable, not watery. Basically, you want to make sure to blend your base until it's smooth with as little liquid as possible. 
Start with 1/3 cup and add a tiny bit as you need it. If you add too much, you can add a bit more frozen fruit and it will thicken up again.
I topped my bowl with cocoa nibs, unsweetened coconut flakes, granola, chopped macadamia nuts, raspberry and banana.
1 tablespoon acai powder
1 banana cut into chunks and frozen
1/3 cup coconut water

Topped with:

fresh fruit (think blackberries, mango, banana, raspberries, strawberries)
unsweetened shredded coconut
nuts, seeds and other (think cocoa nibs, chopped macadamia nuts, chia seeds, buckwheat hearts)
In a blender, blend together frozen banana, acai powder and coconut water. Top with whatever toppings you want.
