Lately, I've been on a mission to find healthier eating choices. After talking to my wellness coach (yup I have one of those, I admit I am not always great at holding myself accountable), I made the decision to try one new recipe per week. This week I made an acai bowl. I've only had it one other time prepackaged from Trader Joes and decided to make my own.
Antioxidants are so good for fighting particles in our bodies that may cause cancer. I love blueberries but after hearing that the acai fruit has nearly triple the amount of antioxidants I decided to give it a try.
I shared the ingredients used in this video below, made using my bullet blender. The only thing I would say I would do differently is use more honey, because it could have been sweeter or blend the entire banana. Next time, I'll use more and I won't feel guilty about it because the Acai fruit is low in sugar. (Yay, I know). Now that I'm typing this I think I need to let my dentist know. He believes the world needs to give up sugar all together. Oh and one more thing, I was hungry about an hour after I ate this. I ate some unsalted cashews to curb my appetite for another few hours.
