A healthy day starts with a healthy breakfast. This Açaï Bowl Breakfast Recipe recipe is very easy to put together (you can have the ingredients ready in advance) and will get you all the nutrients to get through your busy morning. Packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants as well as probiotics and fiber, this açaï bowl recipe is also perfectly suited for Gluten Free and/or vegans alike and for those who are looking for a relatively low sugar content. I use kefir from cow’s milk but the latter can be replaced with a vegan option (coconut, soy, etc…). Kefir is an excellent source of probiotics, which are essential to our gut’s health. The concentration of probiotics in kefir is way higher to the one found in regular yogurt so if you would like to increase your gut bacteria without taking a supplement, try it! Most grocery stores carry it now (watch out for the flavored ones that might have a higher sugar content…). The granola I use is a replica of a Trader Joe’s product that I use to be obsessed with (don’t take me wrong, the one sold at Trader Joe’s only used real organic ingredients and was amazing) but my recent decision to change the way our family approaches consumerism, as well as a strong desire to make a difference on this planet and what we treat our body and health (long story that I will tell later), made me try to replicate this product. The end result was a success and approved by the whole family! Recipe and tutorial of the TJs Toasted Coconut Granola Replica will be posted on the blog very soon! In the meantime, you can buy the original one or use the granola of your choice! Time to check out the ingredients below and prepare your new favorite açaï breakfast bowl!
- Açaï puree (sweetened or not depending on your preference)
- Toasted coconut granola (I use to buy the one from Trader Joe’s but decided to make it myself in order to save money and reduce plastic waste).
- Plain Kefir (I get it from Trader Joe’s but I am planning on making it myself too. Stay tuned for the recipe… Vegans can use coconut, soy or any other plant-based kefir). Yogurt can replace kefir in this recipe (if you don’t like the tart taste of kefir)
- Berries (I use blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries)
- Other fruit such as figs, bananas or pears or whatever you feel like eating that day
