One of my favorite afternoon snacks is an acai (ah-sah-EE) bowl…I’m eating one right now! For those of you who are well-acquainted with this purple berry from Brazil you know all about the high levels of anti-oxidants and the amazing energy they pack. I am not going to go into great detail about the omega this and the vitamin something that…all that you need to know at this point is that they are delicious and a great way to bring healthy habits to your snacking. If you have never had an acai bowl then stop what you are doing and go out and find your nearest neighborhood juice shop…step up to the counter and order a bowl and then come back here and I will help you make your own. Making one yourself costs less than half of what you will pay for one from a shop…they are easy and fun to make too!
Here’s your shopping list:
Here’s what you do:
Have fun with it…many people with drizzle a little honey or agave nectar on top for added sweetness. It’s summertime and berries are in season…try extra blueberries or strawberries on top.
Healthy snacking and saving money…woo hoo! I told you they packed a lot of energy…
