Acai Bowl

Prep Time 5 mins
Course Breakfast, Snack
Servings 1 person

Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients
  

  • 1 banana (save 5 slices for topping)
  • 1 frozen Acai sachet
  • 1 cup frozen sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 tbsp Tropeaka Lean Vanilla Protein (or protein powder of choice)
  • unsweetened almond milk to blend (or dairy-free milk of choice)

Toppings (optional)

  • 5 slices banana
  • 1 handful blueberries
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 tsp cacao nibs

Instructions
 

  • Add sliced banana, frozen açai, frozen strawberries, protein powder, ice and a dash of almond milk to blender
    (I recommend adding the ingredients in that order since the banana isn’t frozen it will blend easily and help to blend the other ingredients)
  • Blend the ingredients until thick and smooth. You may need to add more almond milk and scrape down the sides of the blender to help mix.
  • Once thick and smooth, pour mixture into a bowl (I used a Tropeaka coconut bowl)
  • Top with fresh fruit, drizzle peanut butter then finish with some cacao nibs

Notes

If you are using a frozen banana you won’t need the ice.
 
Be sure not to add too much milk a good starting point is 60ml.
 
Toppings are optional as the açai bowl tastes great without them too.
 
I recommend topping with cacao nibs they give it a nice hint of chocolate as well as a delicious crunch.
 
Crunchy or smooth nut/seed butter tastes great.
 
Protein powder is optional but helps with flavour and creates a more filling meal.
