Berry Beet Acai Bowl
If you’re a ‘need-a-spoon consistency’ smoothie lover like my good self, you’ll be all over this bowl. Acai bowls are being embraced by the health conscious for good reason – they are a delicious meal in a bowl, full of antioxidant rich, immune-stimulating, energy-boosting fruit. Consider throwing in a handful of raw spinach and you’ll be Popeye in no time.
1 large frozen banana
1 cup milk of choice (I love almond milk)
2/3 cup frozen berries of choice
2 scoops natural flavoured protein powder (optional)
1⁄2 small beetroot, peeled, chopped
1⁄4 cup acai powder or 2 pouches frozen acai berries
3 tablespoons chia seeds
Combine all ingredients in a high-powered blender, adding chia seeds last. Pour into
bowls. Top generously with your favourite homemade granola (for the all-important ‘crunch factor’) and fresh banana or throw on some coconut flakes and fresh berries, whatever tickles your fancy. Devour immediately.
