One of my favorite things to do with breakfast is customize my heart out. There’s no such thing as a boring breakfast in our home: even scrambled eggs always have some fun new ingredient tossed in. This smoothie bowl is no different: with a sweet, fruity taste and mild tartness, I can’t help but share how I love to make this bowl my own.
The base of this acai bowl is made with frozen acai puree, banana, and plant milk, creating a thick and creamy texture that is perfect for adding your favorite toppings.
Speaking of toppings, the options are endless! Choose from a variety of fruits, seeds, and nuts to add some crunch and flavor to your bowl.
For a tropical twist, top the bowl with coconut flakes and chopped mango. Adding cocoa nibs, chocolate chips, and a drizzle of peanut butter create the chocolate lover’s dream. Refresh with a combination of mint leaves and sliced kiwi!
