Best Ever Acai Smoothie Bowl

Acai Bowl

Best ever acai bowl

Nothing like a simple delicious breakfast that requires little to no preparation. Though my go to brekkie is oat porridge, lately I’ve been craving something cooler, like a smoothie bowl.

Now, I’ve made many acai smoothies before, but this time I added something that makes this bowl the most refreshing and delicious acai bowl I’ve ever made and tasted.

Mint.

I added fresh mint leaves on a whim as the idea popped into my head. And it’s a game changer.

The mint flavour is very subtle. You probably won’t be able to taste it if you don’t know it’s there. But it just works so well with the acai and berry flavour. Give it a go!

Simple Acai Berry Smoothie

Here’s another ‘superfood’ with which you should get acquainted. Açaí (ahh-sigh-ee) is a berry harvested from palm trees found in Brazil and Peru in Central and South America. It has become really popular due to its varied health benefits, as it is high in antioxidants, minerals, healthy fats, and vitamins.

 

Açaí berries come in several forms such as dehydrated in capsules, in frozen pulp, or as freeze-dried powder. I have only used the freeze-dried powders but I’m keen to try the frozen pulp form as it has a stronger taste, texture, and higher nutritional content. Though the freeze-dried form is very convenient to have laying around as you can add it to juice, smoothies, porridges, desserts, and pretty much anything which takes berries, to instantly boost the nutritional content of your meal.
