It’s hard to believe, but I only recently tried an acai bowl. If you don’t know what that is, acai is considered a superfood with many nutrients that is mixed with various fruits and topped with granola, seeds, etc. and served in a bowl. Well, when I went to the store to pick up some acai, I saw soy lecithin on the ingredient list. Now, I may have been over-thinking things, but I wanted just acai on the ingredient list. Hence, I decided to make my own version using strawberries and blueberries where those fruits were the only items on the ingredient list. This story is a reason why I emphasize reading the ingredient list as you’ll often be surprised as to what you will find. You can read How You Should Read Nutrition Labels for more information.
Berry Berry Smoothie Bowl
- 1 c. Vanilla Sweetened Almond Milk (Yes, you read that right. For this recipe, you’ll be more likely to satisfy your sweet tooth by having the vanilla and sweetened version of almond milk.)
- 3/4 c. Frozen Strawberries
- 1/2 c. Frozen Blueberries
- 1 T Hemp Seeds (A great source of protein.)
- 1 Banana (Sliced)
Blend the almond milk, strawberries and blueberries in a blender until smooth. Pour into a bowl, add hemp seeds and the sliced banana. Enjoy!
As always, make this recipe your own. Maybe you want to add peaches, then add peaches or if you want to add some granola, feel free to do so. Whatever you add, have fun with it and make this a healthy treat you’ll want time and time again.
