Green Acai Berry Bowl

Green Smoothies were all the rage last year but for 2014, there’s a new Superhero in town called the BOWL!  Yup, the bowl is prettier and can be decorated easier than a boring glass.  So, here’s a twist on the smoothie:  The Green Acai Berry Bowl.  And trust me, it’s much easier to get your kids to eat this when it’s in a bowl and decorated with pure goodness.

1 banana (frozen is good if you want it nice and cold!)

1/2 cup coconut water

3 dates (pitted)

1 pear

large handful of spinach

1 teaspoon of acai powder (or more if you fancy!)

For the topping:

Well, you can add just about anything you like.  For this post, I added blueberries, coconut flakes and bee pollen!  Yum!

The acai berry is one of the healthiest berries you will ever find!  This antioxidant-rich fruit has been tooted for centuries as a healing, immune-stimulating, energy-boosting fruit.  Hurray!  A foreign relative of the blueberry and cranberry, studies have shown that this antioxidant-rich berry may be able to help in the prevention of diseases associated with oxidative damage, not to mention many other health benefits like digestion and weight loss!  I’m all over this berry……Enjoy!
