Acai Bowl

Many of you may be thinking what the heck is an acai bowl?! The word acai is pronounced ah-sah-EE and is a small, dark purple, berrylike fruit with a juicy pulp. It is an indigenous berry commonly found in the rain forests of the Amazon and is rumored to be an absolute miracle berry for weight loss and anti aging. Much of this is still in debate, however, what we do know is that blended up with some extra fruit and topped with a selection of delectable toppings it canΒ create a delicious and healthy breakfast!

{Top Tip – be careful with going overboard on the toppings – the weight loss possibility will stay just a possibility if you add 2 handfuls of granola…!)  ❀ xx
