Acai Breakfast Bowl

In my opinion this is one of the healthiest and most delicious breakfasts you can eat! Tom and I discovered this breakfast on the second part of our honeymoon. We were on the island of Maui, staying at a hotel in Kaanapali. Every morning we would drive north to a town called Napili and get a hot cup of Kona coffee at The Coffee Store. We saw a women eating this big bowl of something that looked amazing so we decided to order it and give it a try. It was called the Acai Breakfast Bowl, and turned out to be one of our favorite things we ate the entire trip on Maui. I asked the girls how to make it and they gave me the recipe. Now we make this for breakfast on the weekends.

To make this recipe you need to buy frozen unsweetened Acai smoothie pack from Sambazon. You can find these at Whole Food Market or Wild by Nature. You can also order them online:

The Acai berry is full of antioxidants and healthy omegas.
