FOODIE FRIDAYS: Açai Bowls

After seeing dozens of pictures and posts on Instagram about Açai Bowls, I decided to make some for breakfast one morning last week.  I bought the frozen açai packets in the freezer section at Whole Foods.  Prepare those per the packet directions. Run the frozen packet under warm water for 10 seconds.  Remove from plastic and place açai in blender or food processor.  Add half of a sliced banana and 1/4 cup of coconut water or unsweetened almond milk. From there you can basically add whatever you like to your bowls.  To mine I like to add the following:
Greek Yogurt
Granola
Almonds
Almond Butter
Fresh Berries
Pomegranate Seeds
Shredded, Unsweetened Coconut
Hemp/ Chia Seeds
Drizzle of Agave

You could also add:
Other nuts and seeds
Chocolate or carob chips
Dried fruit
Honey
This makes the perfect breakfast food to keep you full and full of energy through the day!

  1. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. May read this article about Chia seeds at:
