Frosty Acai Protein Breakfast Bowl

Frosty Acai Breakfast Bowl

Acai Bowls are all the rage in the mainstream and raw vegan world, and for good reason! They taste like a decadent frosty treat with a burst of berry flavor. An added benefit is being packed with vitamins, live enzymes and powerhouse anti-oxidants. You have an option to make them a complete meal replacement with the added protein from protein powder.What a lot of people do not realize is that even though the ingredients are very healthy in an acai bowl, there just isn’t enough protein to make this a complete meal…unless you add enough protein as I do.  I kept it non-dairy and vegan by using a vegan kosher shake. With or without the optional shake, this is a recipe the entire family will love. To make it more festive set up a toppings’ bar when serving to your family or friends. (Want to see the prep in action?  Hop on over to our YouTube channel and see how to create this nutritious meal first-hand).

  • 1-2 cups frozen strawberries or mixed berries
  • 1 sliced and frozen banana
  • 1-2 tablespoons salted almond of peanut butter
  • ½ cup unsweetened vanilla or plain almond or coconut milk, plus more as needed
  • 1 packet frozen unsweetened Acai pouch, broken into pieces (I use Sambazan brand which is found in the frozen berry section of your grocery store.)
  • 1-2 teaspoons raw honey

Optional protein:

  • 1 packet IsaLean non-dairy berry shake (click on the Karen’s favorite health system tab above to find out more or to purchase); or
  • 1 serving vegan shake of your choice – if adding protein powder increase the almond/coconut milk to 1 cup, plus more as needed.

Toppings:

Pick and choose your favorites

  • Fresh, not frozen, banana slices
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Fresh raspberries
  • Fresh strawberry slices
  • Chopped or sliced raw or toasted almonds or walnuts
  • Hemp seeds
  • Shaved coconut
  • Granola, regular or gluten-free
  • Raw cacao nibs

In a high speed blender blend together all ingredients except for the toppings, adding more almond/coconut milk if needed to create a frozen yogurt/pudding-like consistency. Do not make it like a smoothie (too liquidy) as it is to be eaten with a spoon.

Add toppings of your choice. Enjoy!!
