Our Favorite Acai Bowl

Acai Bowl The Northern Magnolia

An acai bowl is one of my and Bennett's favorite treats on a hot day. Last summer we would frequent a local juice bar that makes AMAZING acai bowls before hitting the pool. It's a little tradition I've always treasured because he always made it clear how much he loved the taste of the fruit purée, and I knew I was giving him something really good for him. Acai berries are packed with powerful antioxidants and have an extensive list of health benefits! So this year I decided to start making more acai bowls at home, and they quickly reestablished themselves as Bennett's favorite breakfast.

There are a number ingredients that can be added to acai bowls depending on your taste and what extra nutrient boosts you're needing. In this post I'm sharing the recipe for our my and Bennett's classic acai bowl that takes few ingredients and little time to make (which is so necessary when a toddler is pulling on your skirt until that breakfast is served)!  Do any of you have an acai bowl recipe you love?
