Acai Energy Bowl

Acai berries are said to be amazing for your ticker, improve weight loss, promote pretty skin, boost digestion and more. Pretty special for a tiny berry! Acai is not only hailed as a superfood for it’s antioxidant benefits, but it also makes one amazing smoothie bowl for morning when you need something quick and nourishing. Throw it all in a blender, whizz, top, done. It doesn’t get much simpler (or tastier!) than that.

  1. o delicious!!! Tried this for dinner tonight and it was amazing. I did add just a bit of honey so it was a little sweeter but other than that it is definitely one of my favorite recipes!
