Yummy Breakfast Acai Bowls

img_1031

Acai bowls – basically smoothies on crack. These yummy bowls make a great breakfast – so long as you monitor how much sugar you’re taking in! (Spoiler alert- the bowl in this picture is super sugary, so it’s great 30-45 minutes after a morning workout.)

To serve 2-3 adults for a healthy breakfast, blend 3 packets of Sambazon Acai (you can find this at Whole Foods), 1 banana (frozen or fresh), 1 cup of frozen blueberries, 1 cup of frozen strawberries, 2 cups of coconut milk, and 2-3 scoops of protein powder. The protein powder is key, especially if you’re watching your diet – the extra protein will make this bowl much more filling.

To turn it into a smoothie you can grab for your drive to work, just add a bit more coconut milk and a few ice cubes.

Top the bowls with whatever you desire! Granola is a great topping to make the bowls more filling. Try making my Homemade Granola Recipe for a gluten free granola option. I like to add a tablespoon of peanut butter and a drizzle of honey, and often I add coconut flakes.

Acai bowls & smoothies are a yummy, filling breakfast that will boost your protein intake for the day. Enjoy!

To adapt, I’ve been trying to find healthier (but hearty) snacks to tide us over until our real meal. When I spotted this recipe, it seemed like a great way to boost our protein and carb intake while not spoiling our appetites or upsetting our stomachs.

Check out the recipe below.
