Picnic Acai Bowls

Açaí has been going strong for almost 20 years. I remember because when I was in high school I was obsessed with finding it at health food stores or ordering it online. The small berries from Brazil are packed with antioxidants and taste amazing. It’s no wonder Açaí places are popping up everywhere and more popular than ever. Now, you can find the powder or the frozen açaí at local grocery stores so you can customize your own any way you’d like.

2 tbsp acai powder
1 frozen banana
1 cup almond milk
1 tsp sweetener of choice (stevia, honey, organic sugar)

½ cup (170g) rolled oats
¼ cup (65g) sliced almonds
Dash of cinnamon
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup

Cacao nibs
Goji Berries
Shredded Coconut

Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). In a small bowl add granola ingredients and mix. Place flat on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until granola starts to turn a golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool. In a blender, add acai ingredients and blend until thick. Add ice cubes if you’d like the consistency thicker. Top with toppings and enjoy!
