I jumped on the smoothie bowl train and I'm glad I did. Now it's not something I make every day because really I'm not getting up any earlier than I have to and this takes a little long for a weekday breakfast. But on the weekend, it's game on. Healthy, satisfying and pretty to look at, what more could we ask for in a breakfast bowl. Enjoy!
Suggested ingredients: Substitute with your favorites :)
1 pack frozen acai – found at Whole Foods
1 banana frozen (or fresh works just as well)
1C Fresh fruit – I used blue berries and blackberries, simply b/c that’s what I had on hand.
1/3 cup coconut milk – more or less based on how think you like it.
1/3 C plain Greek yogurt – optional, but I like getting in the probiotics
3 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tbsp of almond butter
A drizzle of agave nectar or honey – optional, based on your sweet tooth
For the toppings: These are ideas to get you started, sky’s the limit, use your imagination and jazz it up however you like! :)
Handful of granola
½ banana, sliced
1 spoonful of almond butter
1 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes
Sliced almonds, walnuts, any nut you like will do
1 tsp chia seeds
Place all the main ingredients in a blender until smooth. If too thick, just keep adding a little coconut milk or yogurt until it reaches the desired consistency.
Add your toppings.
