Making the most out of this good weather, last weekend I went with my children to the mountains to do a bicycle route. So, I made a breakfast that would give us the energy we were going to need to face the morning. I opted for a bowl of açaí with fruit and granola. Sometimes I put açaí in smoothies or bowls, as it is a rich source of antioxidants and nutrients. It is also made up of 40% fiber and contains proteins and fats, making it great when doing sports.
I added granola to my bowl. You might already know that I’ve loved granola for breakfast since I was a child. I use it like a cereal in a bowl of almond milk with fruit and granola, and in main dishes like, salads for a crunchy taste. So, obviously I couldn’t make this bowl without it. I chose one of my favorites, granola with goji berry, ginger, and cinnamon.
Açai Bowl with Granola and Fruit
- 2 frozen bananas
- 100 gr of frozen açaí
- 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tbsp of Chia seeds
- A pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp of baobab
For the topping
- A handful of goji berry, ginger, cinnamon granola mix
- 2 apricots
- 3 cherries
- 1/2 a banana
In a blender add the bananas,açaí, blueberries and water. Blend well until everything combines well and has a uniform texture.
Next add in the walnuts, chia seeds, salt and baobab. Blend everything together at the highest speed setting on your blender until no chunks are left.
Put the mixture into a serving bowl. Add in the fruit and granola and arrange as you please. Feel free to choose your favorite fruit and get creative. Summer is great because you can take advantage of all the in season fruit available and mix them to your liking. AN ENERGIZING BREAKFAST: AÇAÍ BOWL WITH GRANOLA AND FRUIT
