I had always seen snaps of people's breakfasts saying they were having an Acai breakfast bowl on my Instagram & thought they looked interesting but never thought to try one..
Wow well am I glad I did, I was missing out big time.. A cafe next to my work makes a breakfast bowl using Acai not dissimilar to the one I am about to tell you how to create in your own home. I wasn't aware it was frozen or quite cold when I took my first bite & was instantly hooked from my first try..
So whether you have or haven't tried it you should get on the homemade band wagon.. or try it at a local cafe. They are amazingly delicious & healthy too!
Some info I found out is that the Acai berry comes from the Acai Palm Tree, which is native to Central and South America. It is a relative of the blueberry, cranberry, and other dark purple fruits.
Research on the Acai berry has focused on its extraordinary natural antioxidant activity, known to be valuable preventing diseases caused by oxidative stress, such as heart disease and cancer.
It is also Natural source of antioxidants & Acai Is also recognised for cognitive and mental function. You can find out more info here.
I use Amazonia Acai Smoothie packs which I buy from my local health food store.
1 x 100g Acai Energiser frozen smoothie pack, 1 x cup frozen fruit - strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, 1 x Frozen banana , 1/4 cup granola, 1/4 cup blue berries, 2 x Chopped Strawberries, 1/4 cup sliced banana, 1 x Passionfruit
Break the frozen Acai up into large chunks while still in the packaging, run under some warm water to melt slightly. Remove from packaging, and place frozen Acai chunks, frozen fruit, and banana in a food processor. Alternatively, use a blender with a little juice or water to blend. Transfer blended mixture to a bowl and sprinkle with granola and fresh fruit.
