Taste the Açaí Bowl

March 17, 2019

This version uses a very simple base so that you can taste the delicious, tart flavour of the açaí berry! In fact, this is the more common way of serving açaí in Brazil, as opposed to elaborate smoothie bowls commonly found in North America. The toppings can be replaced with any of your favourites, you can find some ideas on our blog about açaí bowl ingredients here. The bowl can be made into a gut friendly, keto smoothie by using stevia or monk fruit in place of honey/maple syrup and reducing or eliminating the banana. A nutritious, tasty breakfast for all! We hope you enjoy!
