Homemade Acai Bowl

There are a lot of variations you can make with acai bowls, but for these recipes I kept it simple with only a few ingredients.

IMG_3915 Ingredients:

1 Packet frozen pure acai

1 frozen banana

1 cup mixed frozen berries

1/2 cup coconut water

Toppings: 1 kiwi-sliced 1/4 cup Granola ( I use Kind Granola)

1 Tablespoon Shredded Coconut

A handful of blueberries, or strawberries passionfruit (Toppings can be whatever you prefer)

*I get the frozen acai packets from either Sprouts or Whole Foods Markets

Directions:

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. Be sure not to over-blend because mixture will become too soupy (if this happens put mixture in your freezer for about 1 hour to thicken). Pour into a bowl, place your toppings and enjoy.

I recently came across a recipe for a barley bowl on instagram, and I used this recipe as an inspiration for this bowl. When I first made the original recipe and felt it was lacking in flavor. So I added a few different ingredients along with the tahini sauce , and it turned out delicious!

 

Ingredients:

1 Cup cooked Barley

1/2 avocado-sliced

1 Tablespoon roasted pine nuts

1 large Kale leaf – coarsely chopped

Sauce:

1/2 Cup plain greek yogurt

1 Tablespoon finely chopped chives

1 Tablespoon tahini

1 Teaspoon lemon juice

1 Teaspoon lemon zest

 

Directions:

Cook your barley as directed on packaging. Roast pine nuts on stove top over low heat, only for a few minutes ( until golden brown). Mix together, barley, kale, roasted pine nuts, and avocado. Separately, mix your ingredients together for the sauce, and add to the top of the bowl.


Infused Water

The combinations are endless with what you can use in infused water. When you’re making them for on-the-go, these Voss Water bottles are great! With a wider mouth opening than most water bottles, they make it easier to fill with your fruit.

Infused Water

Here are the 4 combinations that I made:

  • Strawberry, and Lemon
  • Strawberry, Mint, and Lemon
  • Orange, Lemon, and Mint
  • Cucumber, and Lemon.

Faux Dough-Sugar Cookie

My Previous Faux dough recipe was such a hit , I thought I would try some different variations. This one is similar to sugar cookie dough.
