Delicious Healthy Acai Bowl
Do you ever feel old and out of it?
My kiddos are always sharing the latest and greatest trends and my daughter is obsessed with Acai bowls.
She is constantly chatting about Acai this and Acai that. And of course how healthy it is.
Aren’t you a little curious how they taste?
Well, here is our little Acai story.
So, every month we happily head over to Alameda for their gigantic antique fair. Every first Sunday of each month, the two of us make our mother-daughter trek to this fabulous event. There are miles and miles of booths and of course we see every row and booth at the fair.
This past Sunday, I just so happened to find a few things this time around. I’m not sure why I bought another throw pillow since the good Lord knows I really don’t need one. But my daughter talked me into buying it and mentioned she would carry it for the rest of our shopping day.
Aren’t daughter’s the best?
So, she wasn’t having much luck with finding the two guys who sell jewelry for a dollar a piece. In fact, we haven’t seen them since summer. So, we kept rounding each new corner thinking we would see their amazing table that was piled high with costume jewelry. But, alas we struck out.
So, we decided to try our luck at finding food. And lo and behold, there amongst the many food trucks sat a trendy Acai Bowl truck.
Our luck was turning around.
This was a day of reckoning.
We would experience our first Acai which is phonetically pronounced, “Ah-sigh-ee.” Ok, so we are hipsters over here since we now how to pronounce this healthy treat.
So, I really didn’t know what to expect. Well, let me just say it was a monumental moment for me! And since Sunday, I have such a craving for one of these delightful bowls.
So, it was an easy decision when I was approached by Welches to come up with a healthy recipe using their 100% Grape Juice. Tada, I would make my own Acai bowl, and this is my story of how I came up with my recipe.
I’m quite certain you will be hooked on this wonderful gluten free and dairy free recipe.
Welches Grape Juice Acai Bowl
1/2 cup Welches 100% Grape Juice
1 packet of Acai Berries (sold at Whole Foods and Amazon)
1 frozen banana
5 or so frozen strawberries
1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
2 tbs of honey
2 banana sliced diagonally
1 cup coconut shavings
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 tbs chopped pistachios
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
Blend smoothie ingredients in a blender. Divide and place ingredients in two bowls.
Then spread a layer of granola over the smoothie.
Next, drizzle honey over the granola.
Sprinkle your coconut and cranberries over the granola and then place a dollop of peanut butter in the center.
Next, arrange bananas on the outer edge to form a flower petals shape. Sprinkle bananas with chopped nuts. So, I hope you enjoy our heart healthy Acai bowl.
Furthermore, did you know that February is heart health month? So, why not get healthy all year around with the great heart benefits of Welch’s 100% Grape Juice.
