This Acai Berry Bowl feels like you are eating dessert, but it is really healthy! Since it can be made in minutes, it is perfect for weekdays!
I have to admit, I am a little late to get on the acai bandwagon. I was first introduced to the juice many years ago. It was alright – nothing to get super excited about. Since the juice wasn’t that big a deal, I never tried the puree, until recently.
I am so glad that I gave it a chance, because it is one of my new favorite ingredients to include in a smoothie bowl. This Acai Berry Bowl came about from ingredients that I had in my fridge.
My first acai recipe was a Cacao Acai Bowl, which is like having vegan chocolate ice cream for breakfast.
If you are one of those people who have never tried acai before, it is sweet and tart, kind of like raspberries. It contains antioxidants, fiber and heart-healthy fats.
It comes in a few forms: puree, juice, and powdered. I have yet to try the powder, but would like to one of these days. It sounds like it would be great for traveling. I could add it to overnight oats or a smoothie.
You won’t ever see fresh acai berries in the U.S. because they are high in fat and go rancid quickly.
This is similar to a smoothie in that it is really easy to whip up. The only difference is it has a thicker consistency and toppings. Since this can be made in minutes, it is perfect for weekday mornings.
It feels like you are eating dessert, but it is really healthy. It tastes like a sorbet, but isn’t loaded with all the sugar that sorbet has.This Acai Berry Bowl feels like you are eating dessert, but it is really healthy! Click To Tweet
