Apparently acai bowls have been trendy for some time. It wasn’t until I visited one of my friends in Austin that I even knew these filling little superfood bowls existed. Every morning after I had my first one, I braved the heat to grab another bowl. Fast forward a year, I had completely forgotten about these guys until I ran past a little store in Boulder that advertised their “rush bowls.” They weren’t identical to the acai bowls from Austin, but they were still hella good! For those hot summer days – this is the ultimate breakfast or snack. Easy and relatively cheap to make!
How to make your own? First, create your favorite fruity smoothie – like frozen berries, banana, and almond milk – in a blender. Pour in a bowl and then add a mixture of puffed rice, barley, and millet cereal! If you prefer granola, toss that in there instead. Slice up a few figs (or whatever fruit you fancy), sprinkle coconut flakes on top, and drizzle a touch of agave for those with a sweet tooth.
