A fruity Acai bowl

Think sweet, refreshing, tangy, creamy and crunchy all packed into on little bowl of goodness!

This is my version of the very popular Acai bowl. Acai is a wild Amazonian berry packed with the highest concentration of antioxidants for fruit. It has a similar taste to blueberries although a little more bitter. For this recipe i have used organic freeze dried acai powder wild harvested from within the Amazon in a native bio-diverse ecosystem.

I often enjoy one of these bowls as an afternoon snack, early lunch or post workout breakfast. The toppings for these bowls are endless! I always try to use seasonal fruit and then some of my favourite seeds to add a good crunch factor.

Place all the ingredients into a blender and whizΒ for a good 1-2 minutes until a nice smooth consistency is achieved.
