Sometimes, I feel my body needs an extra boost of vitamins and nutrients.  One nutrient in particular I know I need more of is Omega 3’s.  It is rare I eat fish, and I do not have many other food sources with this nutrient.  Usually, I take an Omega supplement to help me out.

It seems smoothie bowls have been all the rage for quite a while now, and I never tried one, until I made this one I am showing you all, today.  I knew my smoothie bowl needed to have Acai.  The first time I had Acai was during Ian and I’s honeymoon in Coronado, California.

I was born in Coronado.  I love to claim that I am a California girl, and Ian likes to tell people he married one.  For a while, his theme song for me was “California Gurls” by Katy Perry.  But, Ian also likes to tease me because my parents moved from California to Virginia when I was only 8 months old, so I can’t really claim California as much as I usually do.  Despite not growing up in CA, I have had a burning desire to go back and explore it.

Coronado was a gem.  We stayed at the Hotel Del, went to the San Diego Zoo, and had a beach day.  It was also fun to explore Coronado Island.  I think we spent a full day walking the island.  My cousin and her husband are also living out in San Diego, so we spent an evening catching up with them at a fabulous Mexican restaurant.

The food was to die for.  I thought I enjoyed Tex-Mex, but, in full honesty, it does not hold a candle to the food we had in Coronado.  One spot Ian and I had breakfast at almost every day was a placed called, Clayton’s.  It was like stepping into a 50’s diner when you walked inside.  The menu was vast, and the coffee was fantastic.

When we were there, I noticed people ordering this bowl that looked like it was filled with a berry sorbet or something similar, topped with granola, bananas, and berries.  I came to figure out it was an Acai berry bowl, and I had to try it.  After one bite, I was hooked.

It’s been over a year, since our fabulous honeymoon, and I finally decided to make my own Acai bowl.  I love that Acai is loaded with antioxidants and health benefits.   While I used Acai frozen packs I found at my local health food store, you can purchase freeze dried Acai powder here.  If you go this route, I would add about a cup or so of frozen berries with the powder in lieu of the frozen packs I found.  This is only a guesstimate.  I have not tried that out, yet.

Onto the smoothie bowls!  This is an incredibly simple and quick breakfast or lunch, and it definitely satisfies a sweets craving.  If you chop your fruit the night before, this smoothie bowl can easily be done in about 5 minutes or less.

See?  That could not be an easier breakfast, and you are filling your body with tons of vitamins and nutrients, perfect for a little boost.  I wish I had some kiwi for my bowl, but sadly I could not find any.

I think the base to this bowl is perfect for topping with any fruit that is in season.  I also see the flavor of Acai going extremely well with chocolate.  Might I suggest some cacao nibs to add in the future?

I love these bowls!  They are gorgeous, delightful, and incredibly filling.

My next post is going to be another room tour of the McDodge House.  I will showcase our hallway, and bathroom.

Have you had a smoothie bowl before?  What would you top yours with?
