Healthy Breakfast: Super Mango Pineapple Acai Bowl

September 15, 2015

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk (from the carton, not the can) or other vegan milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • 3/4 cup loosely packed kale, chopped
  • 1/2 heaping cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 heaping cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 acai packet
  • 1 heaping teaspoon maca powder
  • 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup granola, separated
  • 1/2 banana, thinly sliced
  • 3-4 strawberries, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1/4 cup fresh mango, chopped (or other fresh fruit of your choice)
  • 1 tablespoon goji berries
  • 2 teaspoons cacao nibs
  • 1 teaspoon hemp hearts (shelled hemp seeds)

1. Choose the bowl that you are going to serve the acai bowl in, and place it in the freezer (optional, but this will keep the smoothie colder longer).


2. Prepare your toppings, such as the slicing the strawberries and the half banana. Set aside.


3. Combine the first 7 ingredients in your high-speed blender, and puree until smooth. You may need to scrape the sides a few times or stir it to break up clumps. This will be a thick smoothie.


4. Remove the bowl from the freezer and pour 1/4-cup granola into the bottom of the bowl. Gently pour the smoothie on top of the granola (If the smoothie has started to liquefy, you may want to place the blender canister in the freezer for about five minutes before pouring into the bowl). Top with the 1/2 cup of granola and sliced fruit. Sprinkle the goji berries, cacao nibs, and hemp seeds on top of the fruit and serve immediately.
