Another delicious, healthy breakfast recipe. Change the fruit and/or toppings to keep it interesting – using fresh seasonal fruit will also keep the cost down.
This acai bowl recipe is also great as a mid-afternoon snack and pick-me-up.
You could even have it as a dessert for those nights you are craving something sweet but healthy.
- 1 banana ((save 5 slices for topping))
- 1 frozen Acai sachet
- 1 cup frozen sliced strawberries
- 1 cup ice
- 2 tbsp Tropeaka Lean Vanilla Protein ((or protein powder of choice))
- unsweetened almond milk to blend ((or dairy-free milk of choice))
- 5 slices banana
- 1 handful blueberries
- 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
- 1 tsp cacao nibs
Add sliced banana, frozen açai, frozen strawberries, protein powder, ice and a dash of almond milk to blender
(I recommend adding the ingredients in that order since the banana isn’t frozen it will blend easily and help to blend the other ingredients)
Blend the ingredients until thick and smooth. You may need to add more almond milk and scrape down the sides of the blender to help mix.
Once thick and smooth, pour mixture into a bowl (I used a Tropeaka coconut bowl)
Top with fresh fruit, drizzle peanut butter then finish with some cacao nibs
If you are using a frozen banana you won’t need the ice.
Be sure not to add too much milk a good starting point is 60ml.
Toppings are optional as the açai bowl tastes great without them too.
I recommend topping with cacao nibs they give it a nice hint of chocolate as well as a delicious crunch.
Crunchy or smooth nut/seed butter tastes great.
Protein powder is optional but helps with flavour and creates a more filling meal.
