#326: Acai Bowl with Flax and Blueberries

The Acai Berry is a reddish-purple fruit that comes from the acai palm tree in Central and South America.  Many tout acai berries as having immense antioxidants.  Although whether or not these have more than other fruits is not certain.  Either way, clearly I've succomb to the trend of acai bowls - they're everywhere, along with their friend, the acai smoothie.  

Once in a while I make a trip to the local Whole Foods.  I say "once in a while" because that place has some pretty steep prices to make it my 'go-to.'  Either way a guaranteed purchase for me are the Sambazon Acai Berry Smoothie Packs.  It's basically pureed acai berry portioned out into the perfect individual amount, and placed in a convenient plastic bag. You just cut off the top and prepare your bowl or smoothie.  When I'm in a rush I make the smoothie, but since I had time on Sunday I thought I'd make myself a bowl.  Mine is made up of acai berry puree, almond milk, plain Greek yogurt, blueberries, and organic flax hemp blend.  


Acai Bowl with Flax and Blueberries - 1 bowl

Ingredients
1 Acai Sambazon Smoothie Pack
2 tbsps Greek yogurt 
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tbsps organic flax hemp blend 
handful of blueberries, washed

Directions

  1. Empty your smoothie pack, greek yogurt and almond milk into a blender or NutriBullet.  Blend until smooth and pour into a bowl.
  2. Top with the flax hemp blend and blueberries. 
It is so delicious and a great way to start your morning.  This recipe is certainly not finite.  You can use any toppings you'd like - chia seeds, chopped nuts, coconut flakes, mangoes, strawberries, bananas - the options are limitless!
