Protein Smoothie Bowl: Acai Edition
Benefits of Smoothie Bowls
Did you know that eating a smoothie bowl every now and again can actually be good for you? Even more reason to add the below ingredients to your next grocery list.
A lot of time, juices and smoothies get a bad reputation because they’re so easy to drink quickly. And when you’re taking in a higher amount of sugar in a smaller amount of time, you can actually cause a spike in your blood sugar.
A highlight of smoothie bowls it that the base is usually thicker, allowing the eater to slow down and enjoy the snack or meal for a longer time than it would typically take to slurp down a drink.
Furthermore, creating a smoothie bowl using acai berries as your base also comes packed with some added health benefits.
Benefits of Acai Berries
Acai berries are full of nutrients and antioxidants, and can help improve your cardiovascular health, lower inflammation, improve cholesterol, improve your immune function, and decrease your risk of certain cancers. Just to name a few.Print
A protein-packed smoothie bowl full of nutrients that will delight your tastebuds time and time again.
- 8 ounces unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 package frozen acai (Sambazon or Tattooed Chef are amazing options)
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 tbsp peanut butter (or other nut butter)
- If your Acai package came with toppings, set them aside.
- Add all remaining ingredients to a blender (break up the frozen acai packet first).
- Blend until you reach your desired consistency (because the acai bowl is frozen, there’s no need to add any more ice).
- Pour back into the bowl it comes in.
- Add your toppings. If the package comes with toppings you can use those, or you can opt to use any other toppings of choice. Ideas: sliced bananas, berries, coconut, granola, nuts.
