Acai Berry Smoothie Bowl

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

  • Handful berries

  • 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

Preparation

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.
