Açaí Bowl

Super-healthy antioxidant açaí berries are the beautifully purple center of this delicious breakfast bowl or afternoon after-yoga pick-me-up. It’s actually a two-part recipe. First, you blend up a straight-up smoothie, with unsweetened açaí purée (we like the one from Sambazon), frozen banana and peach slices, apple, honey, coconut milk, and—for extra body and protein—a bit of natural almond butter. The second part is what goes on top, a freestyle mix of whatever texture- and nutrient-rich goodies suit your fancy: blueberries, kiwi, flax seeds, black sesame, granola, banana, and pomegranate seeds. Try using Chowhound’s homemade granola recipe for an extra boost.

Instructions

  1. 1Put all the smoothie bowl ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth—you’ll end up with a thick, smoothie-like texture.
  2. 2Pour into a serving bowl and add your toppings of choice.
