An açaí bowl, but better.
Meet the upgraded Açaí Maqui Beauty Bowl.
This beauty-enhancing Açaí Maqui Beauty Bowl is essentially a smoothie bowl… but due to the crazy amount of antioxidants swimming in this thick and creamy blend, I decided ‘Beauty Bowl’ was far more appropriate.
What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are powerful substances found in fruits and veggies (like vitamin C and E) that prohibit oxidation of free radicals in the body by neutralizing and removing them from our blood. Our bodies naturally produce free radicals and the antioxidants to counteract their damaging effects but for the most part, free radicals far outnumber the antioxidants we produce naturally.
Basically, antioxidants mean anti-aging. Yaassss to that. To maintain a continual balance, supplementing with extra antioxidants is necessary! So, we Beauty Bowl it up.
Sunfood just released a new product that I had to share with you guys! Introducing their NEW organic Açaí Maqui Bowl mix, consisting of 7 different superfoods such as:

How to Make an Açaí Maqui Bowl at home:
To the blender, add:
- 2 frozen, ripe bananas (read my post on How to Freeze Bananas!)
- 1/2 cup mixed berries (for extra fiber-rich fruit!)
- 2 tablespoons Açaí Maqui Bowl mix
- 1 tablespoon raw almond butter (or any nut butter)
- 1 cup ice
- 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Pulse and slowly blend, scraping down the sides of the blender when necessary, until it’s smooth and creamy! Pour into a bowl and top with either: fresh fruit (blueberries, banana, kiwi etc.), granola, flaked coconut, chia seeds, hemp seeds and/or a drizzle of melted vegan chocolate (like I did!). Grab and spoon and dig in!
This is one of my favorite breakfasts as the texture is super creamy, its super nourishing, energizing and tastes naturally sweet, not to mention the yummy toppings, which are so very necessary.
This Açaí Maqui bowl is perfect for the first day of spring too! Buy the Açaí Maqui Bowl Mix from Sunfood HERE.
