The Chocolatey Acai Bowl

The Chocolatey Acai Bowl

Lately, I’ve been experimenting with different acai bowls and I think I nailed another great recipe. It’s a smoothly texturized, very chocolatey flavored smoothie and it can look amazing with different toppings.

I will call it…

The Chocolatey Acai Bowl (boom!!)

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet of frozen acai
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • cup of coconut milk – I used Alpro for this one – coconut is better because it already has a natural smoothness and sweetness
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/2 scoop of protein powder – if chocolate-flavoured, even better 😛

If you like it sweeter…

  • 1/2 tbsp maca powder – I used Lucy Bee
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon – good for GI levels
  • 1 tbsp (powdered) peanut butter (optional)

Toppings:

  • quinoa puffs
  • goji berries
  • coconut flakes
  • chocolate – I used Buck-n-berry from lovingearth

Instructions: Defrost slightly the acai packet under warm water, just enough to be able to cut the plastic off (if any). Blend everything together and pour into a bowl. Finally, add the toppings. And voila! Your very chocolatey, very smooth, very vegan, paleo and GI-friendly breakfast!

Let me know if you “dig it” 😀

A vegan smoothie bowl recipe

A vegan smoothie bowl recipe

 

I have a few breakfast ideas I cycle through depending on the weather, my fridge contents and ..well, my mood. This morning, feeling like I need something that looks extra-healthy, I decided to go with a green smoothie bowl. Since it also ended up looking amazing, I thought I should share it on my blog.

But before I dive into it, have a look at the end result below: another delicious breakfast early morning in my very summery garden, while I can catch up with emails. Perfect start to my day!

Lean Green Smoothie Bowl

Execution time (is it only me that reads this term like an engineer?!): 10 mins

Serves: 1 person (or 2?), I have huge smoothie bowls

Ingredients:

Base

Toppings

Execution (haha still an engineer):

Just blend everything together except for the toppings until it becomes a creamy texture. Pour into a bowl, add the toppings so they look nice and BOOM! Your’re done. Don’t be fooled by the green look, the coconut milk and maca powder make it super sweet and nice. Also, the toppings just add more texture and color.

Enjoy! 🙂
