Prep Time: 5 mins (+ 30 mins if banana and blueberries are not already frozen)
The most delicious acai blueberry and banana bowl. It only has four ingredients and takes minutes to put together. With the mirage of health benefits acai provides it’s defiantly worth giving this recipe a go.
I apologise for the use of a bizarre super food in one of my recipes. I’m not usually a fan of strange ingredients but acai is worth taking a look at. It packs a serious nutritional punch, can be ordered online here and then conveniently delivered to your office or home, and comes in a powder (or frozen) so can be easily stored for a long time. The only downside is that it is a tad on the pricy side.
So what is acai? Where has it come from and why is it suddenly to trendy? Native to the Amazon Rainforest the acai tree produces small, dark purple berries. As a result of its extraordinarily high nutritional value, indigenous tribes have used acai for thousands of years to boost energy, treat aliments and support a quick recovery. It has also been nicknamed the “Beauty Berry” due to the combination of antioxidants, amino acids and omega fatty acids it possesses, which all help slow the aging process. It is also exceptionally rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, amongst many other vastly beneficial minerals and nutrients including Selenium, Zinc and Essential Fatty Acids. All of which work together to not only make you feel good but look good too. Although acai is not a substitute for a well balanced diet it is certainly a food worth trying to incorporate into your diet. So I do hope you have a go at making this very yummy bowl. The different flavours and textures work so well together its irresistible, which is why I just had to include it.
