Easy Protein Açaí Bowl

Course Breakfast, Snack
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 packet frozen açaí berry blend I used the Organic Performance Protein blend by Sambazon
  • 1 banana frozen Tip: un-peel the banana before freezing
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond-milk
  • fresh fruit (strawberries/blueberries/banana) to top
  • granola to top - I used gluten-free vanilla almond agave granola by Back to Nature
  • shredded coconut to top - I used unsweetened by Bob's Red Mill
  • honey or agave syrup (optional) to top

Instructions

  1. In a high-powered blender, combine the acai berry packet, frozen banana, and 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk. Blend until completely smooth.

  2. Pour into a bowl and top with sliced strawberries, sliced banana, blueberries, shredded coconut and granola.

  3. Optional: drizzle with honey or agave syrup 

Recipe Notes

TIP: Read the instructions on the pack of the açaí berry mix before blending. I use a NutriBullet to blend the mix and I always need to run the packet under cold water to thaw slightly, then I break it up before inserting it into the blender. Otherwise, it's too frozen-solid to blend. If your blender is professional-grade, you shouldn't have an issue.
