Acai Yogurt Bowl

I teach culinary classes to kids and one fruit I always encourage them to eat is blackberries. Do you know why? It is a powerhouse of antioxidants. A general rule with fruits and vegetables is the darker the color, the higher it is in antioxidant power. I always bring them some blackberries to snack on before we get started on our cooking.

Acai is one of the great super foods that have taken over the health food market in the last several years. Acai is native to Brazil and a few other South American countries. It is a type of palm tree with a dark purple berry. It is the berry where we get all the nutritional goodness from. Here in the US, we generally get acai in either powder form or frozen fruit pulp.

There are also now many snack bars and candies like chocolate covered acai that you can find in gourmet supermarkets or health food stores. Why not get a double dose of antioxidant power as dark chocolate also has some great antioxidant power!

 

The frozen fruit pulps is the most natural form of the berry we can get here in the US without having the actual berry. Make your breakfast colorful and inviting with these easy fruit packs!

I jam packed this smoothie bowl with super food power by also incorporating some matcha and chia into this delicious bowl of goodness!

    That is one colorful super healthy yogurt bowl. Love all the ingredients that went in. We usually get acai berry juice. Will look for frozen acai pack next time I go shopping. I rather use acai pack in smoothies than drink sugar loaded acai juices.

    Acai is such a rage these days and my husband is a big fan of it. We recently bought acai powder from Wegman’s and he has been adding it to his smoothies. I have to show him this acai bowl recipe – I am sure he’ll enjoy it quite a bit.
