#GoneGreen2016 | Day 84 | Acai Bowl Breakfast
Day 84 / 365
Chocolated out yet? I
freaking am. So chocolated I think it literally made me sick. But this is a
food post, so I'll spare you the deets.
So listen, when I was
in California for a while (because our transmission broke in Encinitas, CA)
I noticed the Californians went crazy over Acai bowls. I personally had become
addicted to tacos back in Texas and was struggling to be interested in any
sustenance which wasn't a wrapped in a warm corn tortilla, but decided for the
thrill, I'd give it a try. Now they were a bit spendy for someone with a broken
transmission and barely enough money to cover fixing it in the bank, but we set
up our van with my clutches and my husfriend's photos and hustled for some
money all day.
Now, I didn't make
this recipe up,Green Kitchen
Storiesdid. I've been
obsessed with David Frenkiel &Luise Vindahl for years, since I worked
at Alex & Alexa and used to convince them to create recipes for kids
for A&A's blog. They're super kind and have managed to create a beautiful
story for themselves with their blog,Green Kitchen
Stories. I have their Appsand theirCookbooksand
both are beautiful and inspiring, especially, if you, like me, have a lack of
internal drive when it comes to kitchen duties.
My other obsession is
Honestly Healthy (Alkaline eating recipes, which I talk about here) and
Tash, who is one of the founders, posted this Green KitchenStories' acai bowl recipe on her own blog bringing added approval from both
admired communities. Thus i was convinced to try, in hopes I might hit
optimal health again by Christmas. I've adjusted it slightly to use fruit in
season, in France.
[How To] 1. Place the strawberries, apricots,acai powder and milk in a strong

the nut butter, protein powder or soaked nuts or seeds, if using. Mix
until creamy and smooth. Spoon the acai mixture into bowls and top
with sliced fruit, hemp seeds, bee pollen, goji berries and a drizzle of honey,
if using. Serve immediately.
