Peanut Butter Acai Bowl

Acai Bowls are popping up everywhere and they seem to be the new thing on Pinterest, Instagram, and at juice bars. I can understand why- what’s better then taking a smoothie, making it thicker, adding some toppings, and eating it with a spoon?– nothing. I’m a huge fan of Acai Bowls because drinking my food never seems to fill me up. This is the perfect solution to my smoothie dilemma.

Another great thing about Acai Bowl is, like smoothies, you can hide a lot of nutrition in them and they still taste like a sweet treat. Acai and strawberries are loaded with antioxidants. Bananas and dates add sweetness but also provide fiber. And leafy greens, like spinach, are nutritional powerhouses loaded with vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that support brain function, protect from osteoporosis, decrease inflammation, and so much more.

Building your bowl

Generally, Acai Bowls are loaded with fruit and not much else. I like this recipe because along with all that fruit, you’ll find leafy greens and peanut butter. These ingredients add some fat and protein to the mix and makes it a more filling and satisfying recipe.

We recommend topping it with granola (try our goji granola), sliced strawberries, sliced bananas, cacao nibs, goji berries, etc.

 

 

Get creative

If you are missing any of the above ingredients, fear not!- substitute them with any fruits and/or veggies. Any leafy greens will do and any nut butter can be used in place of peanut butter. For an added nutritional punch, throw in some chia seeds and/or ground flaxseed.

The best part of Acai Bowls is you can customize them however you like! The recipe above is one of my favorites, but you might like it better with a few modifications. Have fun experimenting!
