FROZEN BERRY BREAKFAST BOWL

SERVES 4

The ladies in my life love a bowl of berries like this in the morning. I think it’s because it tastes a lot like ice cream! Acai berries are one of the latest superfoods to reach our shores from South America and, among the many wondrous claims made of them, they are said to boost energy levels. So, no more excuses for staying in bed . . .” p. 196

Frozen Berry Breakfast Bowl

6 tbsp acai juice or 4 tbsp acai powder
300g frozen berries, such as blueberries, raspberries, strawberries or mixed berries
4 bananas, peeled, broken into pieces and frozen for at least 2 hours
Water, coconut water or apple juice, if needed
1 fresh banana
4 small handfuls of granola
2 handfuls of fresh blueberries

  1. Put the acai juice or powder, frozen berries and frozen bananas into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. If the mixture looks like it needs some help blending, add a small amount of liquid, a little at a time, to get it going. The mixture should blend to a soft-serve ice cream consistency rather than a smoothie consistency.
  2. Transfer to serving bowls and top with sliced fresh banana, granola and fresh blueberries. Serve immediately, before it starts to melt!

TO MAKE IT LEAN

Leave out the acai juice or powder and replace it with an extra 100g of frozen berries if you’re watching your weight.
