When I was in Brazil I ate so much acai. Street vendors sold it everywhere, even on the beach! I think I might have had an acai cup everyday. It was the first time I had a smoothie-like treat with granola on top. First bite and I was sold. There is something about the crunchy granola on top of the thick, cold creamy fruit. It’s a match made in healthy foodie heaven.
Since acai is not that easy to find, I decided to make an acai smoothie bowl inspired substitute that reminded me of the flavors in the Brazilian treat.
The result is my Triple Berry Smoothie Bowl!
This bowl may look fancy, but it is really quite simple to put together and could easily be part of your morning routine. The frozen triple berry blend is a nice substitute for acai.
A healthy smoothie bowl is thicker than a regular smoothie, so it sits in the bowl perfectly just waiting to be eaten with a spoon. I feel like it is much more satisfying than a drink because you feel like you are actually eating a meal.
My Triple Berry Smoothie Bowl features frozen bananas, frozen triple berry blend, a handful of spinach and a milk of your choice. It could easily be vegan if you use a milk substitute.
After it’s blended, spoon it into a flat bowl and smooth out the top.
Then comes the fun part. The toppings!
I used fresh blackberries, fresh sliced strawberries, unsweetened coconut and Quaker® Real Medleys SuperGrains Granola. I picked the Blueberry Pecan flavor to add even more berry punch to the Triple Berry Smoothie Bowl.
Real Medleys SuperGrains Granola is such a fun addition. It has a special blend of seven super grains and seeds, fruits and nuts which provide fiber, ALA omega-3 and whole grains. The SuperGrains include whole grain oats, whole grain wheat, flaxseed, red quinoa, sunflower seeds, amaranth and barley.
Adding it to your smoothie bowl, yogurt or oatmeal is a great way to start off your day. It really gives a boost to your morning meal.
Plus it tastes great. I’m kind of in love with the little dried blueberries in it. Yum! Yum!
You can find it at Walmart near the cereal and other Quaker products.
To finish the bowl, place the toppings in any manner, but my Type A self really loves these pretty straight lines.
The finished healthy smoothie bowl is not only nutritious, but really delicious.
That granola crunch gets me every time! Make sure to check out Quaker® Real Medleys SuperGrains Granola the next time you are at the store.
- 3 small frozen bananas
- 1 cup mixed frozen berries
- 1 handful spinach
- 1/4 cup milk of your choice
- Toppings: sliced strawberries blackberries, coconut and Quaker® Real Medleys SuperGrains Granola (blueberry and pecan flavor)
- Put all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Allow to blend fully. It will be very thick.
- Serve with the toppings!
I tested with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. You may need to give the blender some help by pushing down the fruit until it blends. It is very thick. I have a cheap blender and it got the job done though.
