Not Your Average Acai Bowl
ACAI is a super fruit native to South America. Other the past few years this beautiful berry has gotten so much hype for its amazing health benefits. So what are the benefits anyway?
-Antioxidants (anthocyanins, polyphenols, vitamins A, C and E)
-Omega fatty acids: including omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 and fatty acids like linoleic acid, palmitic acid and oleic acid
-Certain essential amino acids
-Electrolytes (magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and manganese)
-Trace minerals (iron, calcium, copper and zinc)
-B vitamins (B1, B2 and B3)
Unfortunately most of the smoothie bars making Acai bowls are loading them with an unnecessary amount of fruit and fruit juices. This Acai bowl recipe uses beets to cut down the sugar content.
Your average Acai Bowl is full of fruit, fruit juices, and added sugars. This is not your average Acai bowl with hidden beets consuming 75% of this bowl. YES BEETS!
Blend the following…
1 tsp Açaí
1/2 frozen banana
1 small handful frozen blueberries
2 frozen beets
