I fell a bit out of love with breakfast last week, for some reason I could just never figure out what exactly I wanted and so my smoothies, juices and granola bowls never quite hit the spot… until this bowl, which magically rekindled my love of breakfast, smoothie bowls and all things pink! I originally made this recipe for the super-foods company Organic Burst, which was really exciting as I’m such a huge fan of their products so it was awesome to be asked to do something for them. Anyway I just loved the recipe so much that I thought it would be a shame not to share it with you all too, so here it is – my acai, berry and baobab breakfast bowl, the perfect remedy for grey autumn mornings! It’s so wonderfully sweet and fruity with the best texture ever. The mix of frozen banana and acai somehow turns the smoothie into the creamiest, almost silky consistency which just melts-in-your-mouth.
If you’ve never tried the two superfoods in here, acai and baobab, then I’d so recommend getting some, they’re magical – so tasty, so energising and so awesome! Acai is crazy rich in antioxidants, with one of the highest levels ever tested, closely followed by other berries, which are in abundance in this bowl so each spoonful protects your body from the free-radical damage that can lead to chronic diseases. The baobab then works to boost your vitamin C and iron levels (did you know that it contains more vitamin C than oranges and more iron that red meat?) while also boosting your calcium, potassium and magnesium levels. Of course the rest of the bowl will also do you wonders, with the almond butter giving you a delicious spoonful of healthy fats and plant protein and the berries, dates and banana loading you up on an amazing array of life-giving vitamins and minerals so that you’re all ready to go for an amazing day!
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup of strawberries
- 1/2 a cup of blueberries
- 1/2 a cup of raspberries
- 2 medjool dates
- 1 tablespoon of almond butter
- 1 heaped tablespoon of acai powder

(You can add a handful of spinach too if you want some more greens and it won’t really alter the awesome flavour!)
