Acai Energy Bowl

Acai Energy Bowl

An Energy bowl is a great way to start your day.

Grown in the palms trees native to Central & South America, the açai (Ah-Sigh-EE) berry has become one of the most popular "power foods" out there. The dark purple berry's taste – a delicious combination of sweet and tart – is not the only reason. The berries contain antioxidants called anthocyanins, which are also found in red wine. They are a form of phytochemicals the natural chemicals found in all plants that protect against disease and promote heart health. Puree made from açai berries has between 10 and 30 times more anthocyanins then red wine and can help reduce the risk of heart disease.

INGREDIENTS

8 oz. açai puree
8 whole strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup soy or almond milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup granola
1/2 cup fresh berries or seasonal fresh fruit

DIRECTIONS:
In a blender, puree açai strawberries, yogurt, soy milk and vanilla for 1 minute, until smooth. Pour into a bowl and top with granola and fruit. Served chilled. 2 servings.

VARIATION:
Crumbled cookies may be exchanged for granola. Chia sees may be added to the bowl. Other fruit (such as bananas or mangoes) may be substituted in like amounts for strawberries.
