How to build an Acai Bowl


Posted on   Category: Balanced Breakfasts

Okay, admittedly this is not all that festive, but I firmly believe in maintaining routine around the holidays. If I didn’t, it would be cake and half the advent calendar for breakfast. I’m keeping it clean this December with delicious Acai bowls to kick that sweet tooth.

If you’re not on the Acai bandwagon already (living under a rock?!) they’re berries originating from Brazil rich in antioxidants, fibre, omega fatty acids and more – known for its chocolate-y berry flavour and deep purple colour. Acai comes in a few forms – frozen smoothie packs, juice and powder. This recipe uses powder, but smoothie bowls work well with the frozen packs too.

For my sanity and every one around you – it’s pronounced ah-sigh-eee. The noise you’ll make when you get your lips around this frosty goodness!
