Whole Food Acai Smoothie Bowls are made with frozen acai, mixed berries, banana, milk, honey, and nut butter. They’re a delicious and super healthy breakfast to start your day with!
It’s about time I jumped on the smoothie bowl train, isn’t it? I’m only, oh, five years late to the game. That’s me with pretty much every food trend, but I’m really kicking myself for not trying Acai Smoothie Bowls sooner! They’re so, so good!
I guess I never saw the benefit of making a smoothie into a bowl, until now. Since Lars has started liking smoothies, they have started to become a really easy breakfast option for him. I can pack in fruit, dairy, veggies, chia, flaxseed, and nut butter and he will happily drink it! However, when I make us smoothies I worry he didn’t get anything to “eat.”
This is where the magic of the acai smoothie bowl comes in. Since it’s in a bowl, you can put any toppings on it that you want ! Fruit, granola, chia seeds, flaxseeds, coconut, yogurt, more nut butter, cereal whatever! Lately our favorite has been Barbara’s cereals Peanut Butter Puffins.
While smoothie bowls are a little more involved than pouring a bowl of cereal and milk, they also don’t have to be hard. A couple of weeks ago I made us some “smoothie packets” where I portioned out the fruit and veggies that I like in smoothies in plastic baggies and all that needs to be added is the liquid. This makes putting a smoothie or smoothie bowl together in the morning that much easier!
I also picked up some frozen acai from Whole Foods last week that I’ve been super excited to use. Acai is a fruit that is loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and healthy fats and I’ve been wanting to try it for some time.
These acai smoothie bowls were definitely a hit. I loved the act of “eating” my smoothie (and the toppings!) with a spoon, as I often miss the act of chewing breakfast when I drink smoothies, and Lars did too! You can really top your smoothie bowls with whatever toppings you want, but I used Peanut Butter Puffins, chia seeds, and coconut. Lars asked for “more cereal and nanas” multiple times. It’s safe to say we both loved this combo!
So tell me – what’s your go-to breakfast on busy mornings?!
