ACAI BOWL DREAMS

why acai berry? : It's more than the pretty purple color.

Acai has been known as a "Super Food" in the mainstream for some time now. It grows in South and Central America and is native to swampy environments. Brazilians have been consuming this berry for decades and claim it has great benefits for the skin and digestive health. Why? 

it's loaded with antioxidants

Acai packs twice the amount of antioxidants found in blueberries. With it's high level of B vitamins, healthy fat (omega 3's and 6's), and LOW amount of sugar, these berries are an ideal staple in any diet. HIGH in anthocyanins, polyphenols, vitamins A, C and E, it's said that Acai is a major aging defense. These berries are also high in dietary fiber and great to boost energy without the major crash afterwards. 

it tastes like berries and chocolate combined

Yes. Yes, it tastes like chocolate. This is exactly why it's fantastic in smoothies and Acai bowls. It tastes rich and is a great BASE to add other fruits and toppings to, with a smooth consistency. I personally have been consuming it every day. Can't stop, won't stop.

Acai Bowls:

Like a bowl of cereal, with an even better substitute for milk. This is a nutrient-dense meal and is best eaten early in the day (for breakfast, or as your first meal of the day) so that your body gets RIGHT to digesting it. It's also SUPER quick and simple to make.

step 1: Un-thaw your packet of frozen Acai Berry Mix by placing it under lukewarm running water for 20 seconds. 

step 2: Open and squeeze the berry mix into blender. (it's still frozen which makes it great. think: smoothie like without the ice)

step 3: Add almond milk + drop of honey into blender. BLEND.

step 4: pour into bowl, mug, to-go container, ANYTHING. 

step 5: top with more fruit, nuts, granola, bee pollen, seeds, you get it.

my go-to toppings:

granola, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, coconut flakes, chia, flaxseed, dark chocolate chips, cinnamon

MUCH LOVE & enjoy this recipe!
