Start Your Morning With Goji Juice And Acai Berries: Acai Bowl Recipe
At the heart of this delicious breakfast are its main ingredients, the acai berries. Pronounced ah-sigh-ee, these purple berries are slightly smaller than grapes and have a unique chocolate-berry taste.
Being a fan of both goji juice and acai berries, I’ve created a spin on the traditional Brazilian recipe by supplementing the water or mango juice with goji juice. I also had to opt for packaged frozen acai pulp rather than fresh berries, since the only place you can get them fresh is in South America, as the berries will spoil within 24 hours of picking them.
What you need:
How to do it:
Slice banana, adding 2/3 to blender setting the reaming 1/3 aside for topping
Slice strawberries adding about half to the blender setting the remainder aside for topping
Add frozen acai pulp to blender
Pour in enough goji juice to cover blender blades (typically 1/2 cup)
Blend until mixed well. Mixture should be thick.
Pour mixture into a bowl, sprinkle with granola and dried goji berries.
Garnish with remaining banana and strawberries.
And finally, enjoy!
