The best way to start your morning? You guessed it right, not a bagel with cream cheese! The acai bowl is a refreshing fuel-up of raw ingredients that won't leave you bogged down and groggy. The recipe contains a balanced variety of protein, healthy fats and carbs and apart from breakfast is also ideal for a pre/post workout meal.
1 pack of frozen acai (100g)
1/2 medium FROZEN banana
1/4 cup nut milk
2 scoops chocolate protein powder
1 tbsp almond butter
Optional toppings: granola, hemp seeds, berries, chia seeds, coconut shreds
Pour the 1/4 cup of nut milk into your blender
Then put the frozen acai, frozen banana, chocolate protein powder and almond butter
Blend until it has a smooth thick consistency. If it is like a soup, then reduce the amount of nut milk next time you make it.
The benefits of starting your busy morning with an acai bowl:
ANTIOXIDANTS: acai berries are overflowing with antioxidants of the anthocyanin variety just like red wine. it is an exotic relative of blueberries and cranberries.
HEALTHY FATS: contains 74% healthy unsaturated fats such as omega-3
VITAMINS: A, B, C, E, chromium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, calcium
Where to find frozen acai packs? Frozen section of Whole Foods, I like the brand Sambazon. Trader Joe's also has frozen packs. It is much easier to find it now than when I was searching for acai 10 years ago! And if you really have zero time, Juice Generation is the best place to buy a ready to eat acai bowl from.
