FOOD for thought: ACAI

I am probably Acai bowls’ #1 fan. Regardless of where I go, I always find myself tracking down an acai bowl one way or the other. My go-to place is Nektar Juice Bar, because they have a to DIE FOR PB (Peanut Butter) Bowl: An acai bowl mixed with peanut butter, granola, cashew milk and topped with fruit.

It’s safe to say this food came down from food heaven. Who said eating your fruit servings wasn’t fun?

Being that I’m in love with this bowl, I was able to find a recipe for it, that a way I can just whip it up in the kitchen and save some gas money. Found on Fettle Vegan, here’s the recipe:

INGREDIENTS
1 acai smoothie pack (Sambazon packs found at Sprouts or Whole Foods freezer section tends to work best)
8 ounces dairy-free milk ( I prefer Almond Milk)
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1 cup fresh or frozen mixed berries (OR you can sub 1 banana for 1/2 cup of berries)
2 tablespoons peanut butter (or any other nut butter)
fresh fruit + granola, for topping

Blend all tougher in a blender until thick. Pour mixture in a bowl, add toppings and you’re good to go!
