Greenie Acai Bowl (Recipe Quickie)

You know those acai bowls? The ones that we whip out $8.00 for without hesitation at health cafes? Well, the last time I ordered one, I was able to watch the process of making it. In went the apple juice…berries…a bit of acai…a banana…and then into a bowl it was poured. Wait, that’s it? What did I miss?  Aren’t you supposed to like, sprinkle some gold in there? The truth is, making acai bowls at home is incredibly easy, healthy (obviously) and a million times more affordable! Plus, I think they taste better in your own kitchen:)

Obviously, this is my new addiction. It’s so filling and easily holds me over until lunch. Go make this- you won’t regret it!:)

    Can you eat avocado pits?

    • Hi Jenny! Yep apparently they have more nutrients than the avocado. I usually only use about a third and then you have to blend it super well:) hope you guys are all doing well!

      • how does one blend without breaking one’s blender and/or food processor

      • I chop the pit into small pieces (carefully! haha). I also have a Vitamix, which can I swear could grind up nails. If you blend it well enough, you can’t taste it at all:)

      • I was thinking the same thing “avocado pits?” (haha)… I know they contain a lot of nutrients, but I actually never thought one would really be able to eat it 😉 Does is blend up well enough? How does it taste? 🙂

      • Yep, they are full of nutrients! Actually, they taste horrible by themselves haha. But blend a fourth of a third of one in a smoothie and the bananas do their magic, covering up the taste:) I wouldn’t try if you don’t have a strong blender, but if you do they blend up just fine:)
