Hi friends! I wanted to start a little series here on healthy eating. I am always trying to find easy, healthy recipes to make. I’m not at the skill level to make my own recipes, but I hope I will get there eventually! This post does not contain any affiliate links, I just wanted to share a recipe that I find really yummy and hope you will too. 🙂
The first recipe I want to highlight is an Acai Bowl! I’m sure you’ve heard of them before. They have gotten so popular in the last year. They also remind me of summer and I definitely need that reminder on a snowy day like today. I am currently drinking mine pretending I’m on a beach!! I have adapted this recipe from my all time favorite baker. Her name is Rachel, I have linked back to her post at the end. I have also done one other recipe adaption from her website, (although that one is NOT healthy at all) it is SO delicious and my husband and I’s favorite desert.
What you will need for the Acai Bowl:
- 1/2 C of blueberries
- 1/2 C of strawberries
- 1/2 C of milk (I use almond milk if I have it, if not then whole milk.)
- 1 Tbsp acai powder
- 1-1/2 bananas
- 2-3 Tbsp of old fashioned oats
- 1 tsp of peanut butter (optional)
- granola for toppings
Use a blender to combine all ingredients and top with whatever toppings you find most yummy. The other half of the banana works great and I usually use granola (as listed). You can also use chocolate chips, any other type of fruit, or even nuts.
Have you ever had an acai bowl before? How did you like it?
What is your favorite breakfast?
