Acai Bowl

I have been hearing a lot of rumbling on how  yummy Acai Bowls are and living in Joplin, MO there isn’t much of a demand for Acai Bowls so there is no place for me to buy one.  Don’t worry that didn’t stop me from getting my hands on one so obviously I did the next best thing and made my own.  I wanted one so bad I may have even broke my blender while making this.  It’s okay it was a cheap blender and I needed a reason to buy a new one (I’ve been eyeing the Ninja blender).

Acai is considered a Superfood.  What’s a Superfood?, you ask.  Don’t worry I’ve got you covered:

For those who are wondering what the heck Acai is, here is a breakdown (courtesy of Sambazon):

Açaí – the king of the superfruit jungle is this tiny purple palm fruit called açaí. A staple food for the local Amazonians, açaí is rich in antioxidants (specifically anthocyanins like those found in red wine) and healthy fats similar to olive oil, plus it has no sugar. This combo makes açaí a powerhouse of satisfying nutrition. 

This was so easy to  make and the outcome was delicious and refreshing.  It’s great for a quick breakfast or even as a snack.  I topped mine with blueberries, strawberries, shredded coconut and bananas.  You are free to top it with what ever your heart desires.  I think next time I may top it with some granola.
