Acai Breakfast Bowl

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Looking to get away from cereals and/or cooking in the mornings? Try this breakfast bowl. The base is a thicker-than-usual smoothie made with acai (pronounced “ah-sah-EE”). This potent berry is high in antioxidants and can be very beneficial for a range of health problems. It has a naturally tart flavor which goes well with other fruits and nuts. Acai berries are high in anthocyanins, polyphenols, vitamins A, C and E they also contain healthy fats, dietary fiber, amino acids, electrolytes and plant sterols. You can turn this bowl into an afternoon snack or enjoy as a healthy dessert when you feel like something sweet too.
