Açaí bowls are a fabulous breakfast, lunch or dinner. At my home we eat them at all times of the day. They are filling, energizing and actually very low in sugar. This recipe features banana and avocado, but if you are looking for a lower glycemic version you can simply omit the banana and add a bit of stevia to taste. You can typically find raw frozen Açaí in the frozen section at your local natural food store. 

Serves 1-2

What You’ll Need :::

3/4 (3.5-ounce) packets frozen Açaí

1 medium frozen banana

1/4 medium ripe Hass avocado, pitted and peeled

1 cup almond milk

1 tablespoon vanilla Sun Warrior Protein Powder or favorite raw protein powder (optional)

2 tablespoon almond butter

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 cup organic shredded coconut

1/3 cup goji berries

1/2 cup fresh berries of choice

1 teaspoon bee pollen

drizzle of raw honey or maple syrup

METHOD :::

In a high-speed blender combine the Açaí, frozen bananas, avocado, almond milk, protein, almond butter and salt. Blend until the mixture is a smooth, pudding-like consistency. If the mixture is too thick to blend easily, add a little more almond milk. Once the mixture is blended, transfer to a bowl and top with shredded coconut, goji berries, fresh berries, bee pollen and drizzle with honey.
