Acai and Granola Bowl

Updated: Dec 15, 2019


You can’t get much more refreshing than an açai bowl in Summer! The glossy deep purple of this superfood had grabbed the attention of every cool cat! Acai (Ah-sigh-ee) is a rainforest fruit much like a grape with a large seed or pit inside. They are collected from the Acai palm. Packed with nutrients, the acai boasts 19 amino acids and contain more antioxidants than other commonly eaten berries. They are high in healthy fats and gut loving fibre. This acai bowl is topped with homemade granola. It’s so easy to make and brings a smile.
