Easy Acai smoothie bowl

I have been searching high and low for the perfect breakfast.  Something hardy but not too heavy. Something tasty but not too sweet.  Above all healthy  and particularly low in sugar!  Finally I found the perfect breakfast.  Acai smoothie bowl. Besides the taste I love that I can make this breakfast in 5 minutes! Perfect for busy mornings.

The recipe is simple.  Purchase a bag of frozen acai berry packets (make sure you buy unsweetened). You can find them at Publix and Whole Foods.  Grab a packet and run it under warm water for about 15 seconds.  Throw it in the blender with a healthy splash of coconut water and a small handful of your favorite frozen for fresh fruit.  I usually add blackberries.  I try to keep my sugar grams low so I don’t add too much fruit and sometimes I throw in some spinach.  I promise you wont taste it!

Blend until smooth and yogurt like consistency.  Pour in a bowl.  Top with your favorite nuts, coconut flakes, cocoa nibs, a scoop of almond butter, granola (but check the sugar content) and drizzle with a little honey. You have a healthy protein packed breakfast that is loaded with antioxidants and will fuel for the day. Of course feel free to change the toppings to your liking.  Breakfast should be fun!
