The cranberry acai bowl: loved by all
After a stroller run with the girls, I wanted something to cool off with (it's October 22 in Virginia and still hot and muggy....I'm waiting eagerly for the true fall weather to kick in!)
Anyway, thanks to Cape Cod Cranberries, I received two bags of frozen cranberries and naturally got right to figuring out a yummy recipe that I could enjoy with my girls.
What looks like ice cream, tastes [almost] like ice cream and is a beautifully medley of all things delicious and healthy? Cranberry Acai Bowls! It can be pouring rain, cold and 5:30 am and I will wrap myself in a blanket and savor this refreshing goodness...but in my experience, they are extra delicious after a sweaty workout. Just sayin'.
Turns out, cranberries compliments acai nicely, and this luscious bowl yields plenty for two adults or one momma, two 10-month-old babies and maybe a bit or two for two eager doodles. Bonus: it takes about 5 minutes (and will be gone in about 5 minutes, too!)
Cranberry Acai Bowl:
1/2 cup frozen Cape Cod Select Premium Frozen Cranberries
1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries
1 packet frozen acai pack
1/2 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 fresh banana
1. Puree until smooth (add the nondairy milk a little at a time until desired consistency is reached).
2. Garnish with additional cranberries, blueberries, gluten-free granola and banana.
Cape Cod Cranberries are a family business, which of course I'm a fan of!
Acai packs and wild blueberries can be found in the frozen section of most grocery stores or can be found online HERE: frozen unsweetened acai packets. You can also add additional banana and add acai powder to yield the same nutritional benefits and flavor (and pretty color!)
