My Favorite Acai Bowl Recipes
Why I Love Acai Bowls Acai bowls are one of my favorite things in the entire world. This health craze not only creates the perfect Instagram photo, but is also a great way to receive healthy vitamins and nutrients. This beneficial superfood comes from the Amazonian Rainforest in Brazil and provides needed antioxidants, healthy fats and amino acids our bodies thrive on. By adding other superfoods such as Chia seeds, Hemp seeds, Maca powder, Cocoa nibs, Goji beers or Coconut, you can create the perfect meal with vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber and probiotics all in a beautiful bowl. Making an Acai bowl is simple and quick. But make sure you are using the right ingredients so you don’t consume refined sugar and unhealthy fats. Here are my favorite recipes that fills me up and gives me energy throughout the day: The Monster Blend: Sambazon Acai Puree Smoothie Packet 1 Banana 1/2 cup of Frozen Fruit (blueberries or strawberries work best) 1 tablespoon of Chia Seeds 1 tablespoon of Hemp Seeds 1 tablespoon of Maca Powder 1 cup Almond Milk 1 cup Spinach or Kale (optional) a few scoops of Vegan Protein Powder (optional) Aloe (optional) Toppings: 1 serving of Almond Butter 1/4 cup of Granola 1/2 cup of fresh fruit of your choice ( I love an extra banana) Peanut Butter Obsession Blend: Sambazon Acai Puree Smoothie Packet 2 Frozen Bananas 1 tablespoon of Peanut Butter ( I love Natural, Chunky PB) 1/2 cup of Almond Milk Toppings: Chia Seeds Hemp Seeds 1/2 Banana Granola Blueberries Raspberries Bee Pollen Berry Juicy Blend: Sambazon Acai Puree Smoothie Packet A Handful of Blueberries A Handful of Raspberries 1/2 cup of Almond Milk Toppings: I personally only put Chia seeds on this and drink it like a smoothie.

Acai is great to eat after working out or when you are just chilling by the pool. I am currently in Italy and hope to find somewhere that serves my favorite treat because I miss it sooo much. All my friends at home will tell you I maybe eat this WAY too much. But I am just obsessed, I can’t help it. Anyways, I hope you enjoy and if you have any other Acai recipes, share below! I would love to try them 🙂 XO, G
