I’ve been buying açaí bowls from local specialty restaurants or from the grocery store for the last year. This is a perfect breakfast or lunch option for someone who is trying to lose weight. I love these bowls! They are packed full of goodness and you can really make it your own! One thing I don’t like? The cost & not knowing exactly what is going into what I’m eating. It adds up if you buy these a few times a week or even once a week so I figured why not start making my own?!
The only thing I had to buy for this was the açaí. A friend recommended this brand from amazon and I love it! It has zero sugar and it tastes amazing! It doesn’t take much either. I think what I ordered should last me a few months! For more healthy breakfast ideas you can click this link.
Here is the recipe I use for mine:
-1 tbsp of açaí (you can use less but I don’t recommend more)
-Splash of almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer)
-Handful of ice
-Half to whole banana (I happened to have a very ripe banana so I used it all)
-Feel free to add extras! Fresh blueberries, mango, pineapple, strawberries. Get adventurous.
Blend it UP!
-Coconut, Cocoa nibbles, strawberries, blueberries, chia seed, granola, and more!
The possibilities are truly endless and it’s almost like a little smoothie in a bowl! So filling and full of so much goodness.
