{Berry Acai Bowl}

When it comes to breakfast I can be what you would call a creature of habit.  To me breakfast needs to be simple, easy/quick to prepare and keep me full for hours.  I have a handful of "go to" breakfast that I cycle through; Including Greek Yogurt with Berries, Overnight Oats, Smoothies... just to name a few.  But recently I have been getting into something a little different for breakfast... Acai Bowls!

My sister introduced me to the brand called Sambazon a few weeks ago,   Sambazon is a  Unsweetened Acai smoothie packet that works great for making Acai bowls!  I have been blending my Acai packets with strawberries, a bit of honey and stirring in chia seeds in the end.  The next morning I drop in a few blueberries, a dab of greek yogurt and breakfast is served!  If you're look to switch up your morning breakfast routine, I suggest giving this Acai bowl a whirl!

1/3 Cup Blueberries

**Yogurt for serving

1- Run Acai Packet under warm water for 5 minutes to slightly de-thaw the pack.  
2- Add strawberries, acai packet, almond milk and honey in blender.  Blend ingredients until smooth. 
3- Place acai mixture into a tupperware container, stir in chia seeds and allow to sit over night. 

To serve - Stir in Blueberries and Greek yogurt the next morning and Enjoy!  I will sometimes top mine with a bit of granola for a little added crunch!
