My Acai smoothie bowl recipe for energy & focus

Acai smoothie bowl

Acai's the best!! It's perfect for boosting cognition, memory, focus and energy. Basically my best food friend!

I discovered this over a year ago when I was taking it and realised I had no energy or mind when I didn't. So now it's a daily staple and one I couldn't live life without. I use it in my smoothies before work, or if I have a big day planned in the city I find it gives me all the energy and brain power to get through.

This recipe has all the usuals for brain and gut health that I normally use, but with a big Acai energy boost!

If your just starting out making smoothie bowls I have a few tips and tricks here, to get mine thick and creamy every time.

RECIPE

  • 1 frozen banana diced
  • 1 Pure Amazon Power frozen Acai smoothie pack
  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blackberries (if you have no blue or blackberries you can use another frozen acai pack)
  • 1 tablespoon of Amazon Power Acai powder
  • 20 mils coconut water kefir
  • A handful of raw almonds 10-15
  • 20mils or 1 tablespoon of cold flaxseed oil
  • 1 scoop of Vida Glow marine collagen powder (optional - tasteless, great for hair, skin, nails and the gut)
  • 1 teaspoon Maca powder (optional - great for energy & hormones)
  • 1 teaspoon of raw cacao powder
  • Almond milk
  1. Get all your frozen ingredients out of the freezer and leave on the bench for about 10 minutes to slightly defrost.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to your high speed blender with a few good splashes of almond milk.
  3. Start blending. The blender will get stuck so you will need to stop and push the ingredients down with a spatula a few times - it's a labour of love, but keep persisting. It will get to a point when it all starts to blend together, keep blending till it's nice and smooth. You know you have a good consistently when you can flip the blender upside down once its done, and the smoothie doesn't move (but do this with caution!). 
  4. Scoop in to a bowl and top with your favourite toppings - I always have about a tablespoon of chia seeds for fibre, a teaspoon of hemp seeds if I have them (great for protein), fresh fruit - blueberries, kiwi and strawberries are great, a scatter of cacao nibs and buckini's for crunch.

ENJOY!!
