Acai Protein Bowl

Well, good morning!  This week is planning out to be a busy one for me, leaving me a bit stressed.  But have no fear... nothing an acai bowl and some yoga can't help!

My semi-issue with your average acai bowl is that it is packed with calories and lacks protein.  This recipe is a simple way to balance your protein-carb-fat ratio and decrease the amount of calories your typical acai bowl contains. This is your perfect post workout meal!

Acai Protein Bowl
serves one

1 packet of unsweetened sambazon acai
1 scoops of vanilla protein powder (my favorite's are Tera's Whey or Sunwarrior)
1/2 banana
1/2-1 cup almond milk or coconut milk 
2 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut
2 tablespoons of crushed almonds

optional: 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
                1/3 c. low glycemic granola (keep it under 6grams)


Blend together 1 packet of acai, 1 cup crushed ice, protein powder and rice milk.  
*You want the consistency to be as thick as possible.  Add more ice if needed.

Pour the mixture into a bowl and top off with 1/2 sliced banana, carob chips, coconut flakes, and almonds.

Happy Monday friends! Make it a great week : )
