Start your day off right with a delicious Smoothie Bowl. Lots of pure fruit goodness!When we were at the beach a few weeks ago, I made Smoothie Bowls for breakfast one morning and one of my kids asked if the recipe was “on the blog?” It wasn’t, so I figured I better get it on the blog so my kids could find the recipe when they needed it. The smoothie bowls were a big hit with my kids and I love that my blog is their virtual cookbook and hopefully yours too!
Acai Bowls or as I like to call them, smoothie bowls, are all the rage right now. Acai bowls are made with the acai berry which can be hard to find in a regular grocery store and rather expensive. For my smoothie bowls I like to use a frozen berry blend that I get at Costco – it contains blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. I think it tastes just as good and is a lot less expensive. You can use whatever combination of berries you like. The only requirement is they need to be frozen.
You will also need a banana and some juice. I use whatever juice I have on hand. Sometimes it is apple, orange and the other day it was a tropical blend. You can also use almond milk if you prefer. Blend up the frozen berries, banana and juice. You want a nice thick, soft serve, consistency.
I then top the bowl with the remainder of the banana, whatever fresh berries I have and some granola.
Use your favorite store bought granola or you can make your own using this recipe. I like to take it a step further and drizzle it with some honey.
Then the last step is to just grab a spoon and enjoy! It makes an easy, healthy and delicious breakfast but I’ve also been know to enjoy it for lunch and or dinner!
