I don’t know about where you live but here in Portland we have hit a heat wave. I’m telling you I can’t even walk out my front door without instantly breaking a sweat. Who knew the PNW could be so dang hot? Anyways all this heat has me avoiding our stove and oven like the plague. So what does one eat in a heat wave? Smoothie Bowls!
This whole idea of smoothie bowls and acai bowls is not new and it’s actually a culinary concept that I resisted for years but here I am blogging about them now because currently they are my life. They are perfect for any meal and are extremely versatile. Below is my current go-to Acai Smoothie Bowl:
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1oz Genesis Acai 100
- 1 cup frozen mix berries
- 1 scoop Genesis Trim Protein Powder
- 1/2 scoop Genesis Greens Powder
- Almond Butter
- Blend base until smooth.
- Pour into a bowl and top!
I add the Greens powder because it helps support healthy digestion and daily nutrition. It also contains two of my favorite superfoods spirulina because it contains many essential vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and 18 different amino acids and flax seeds an important source of Omega-3 fatty acids. A bonus that this greens powder 25 Billion probiotics per serving, in other words your gut will thank you.
My last superfood add in is Acai 100 because I love to nourish not only my insides but also my outsides. Acai is known to promote healthy skin. I also can always use the energy boost acai provides especially when it comes to spending my days chasing two littles.
What is your favorite acai or smoothie bowl base and toppings?
