Protein Acai Bowl

Have you ever woken up in the morning and thought, I really need to eat something healthy today? I’ve been there and I’ve looked at that kale smoothie recipe and thought no kale, I just can’t. Enter my new found love, acai bowls. These little bowls are delicious and nutritious! Rhyme thyme…ha! See what I did there?!

Anyway, when I’m not making up clever rhymes and I need a healthy snack I’ll make an acai bowl. There are a ton of flavor combinations you can have with these you can literally put any fruit you want in them and they will be delicious. For this recipe I used bananas, Orange Juice, and peanut butter.

Why the peanut butter? I’m glad you asked! Because I like to eat this for breakfast I need protein to give me enough energy and keep me full enough to make it to lunch. Peanuts are a great source of protein and they’re delicious! The saltiness of the peanut butter also draws out the delicious fruity flavor of the acai so it’s win win!

I topped this with strawberries, granola, and coconut chips. I’ll admit that I ate several handfuls of granola and coconut chips out of the bag before they even got to the bowl. They’re delicious and I couldn’t help myself!
