Take acai of relief knowing this almond butter acai bowl is full of nutrients and antioxidants. It’s the perfect healthy breakfast that fits all dietary restrictions, and it tastes like an amazing treat.
Yep, that’s right. This bad bowl is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and, refined sugar-free. This is definitely one of those meals proving that healthy eating doesn’t equal nasty eating. (I’m looking at you, gluten-free bread that tastes like cardboard.) These vegan energy bites are also on my good list for healthy treats.
I ate this for breakfast yesterday after a long run and it tasted better than ice cream, if you can even believe that! This almond butter acai bowl is great for recharging after a workout, because of all the antioxidants in this superfood meal. Did you know acai berries have shown increased mental function in preliminary studies? It is also suggested acai can help with weight loss, and maintaining a healthy weight. I know what I’m eating for the rest of my life!
Feel free to mix up the fruits and toppings in your bowl. Not a fan of almond butter? Switch it out for peanut butter. You could also make a killer tropical acai bowl with pineapple, mango, and coconut. The options are endless!
