Superfood meets super protein in a powered-up breakfast bowl.
High in fiber and plant-based protein, this acai smoothie bowl is a great way to start the day. Not only does it feature a bright berry flavor that will wake up your taste buds, it’s filled with energizing nutrients and will keep you feeling full for hours.
Acai berries also have a very high ORAC score (Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity). ORAC is a measure of how well antioxidants neutralize free radicals, and the higher the value, the better the body can utilize them to fight free radicals.
This superfood bowl also packs more than 35 grams of protein into one serving. Between the hemp hearts, chia seeds, flaxseed, and protein powder, the combined protein will power you through your morning and keep you feeling full for hours (2).
Protein builds and repairs muscle, and also revs up your metabolism, which is especially important first thing in the morning.
This acai smoothie bowl recipe is also an excellent source of healthy fats. It contains avocado, which lends creaminess, and the superfood seeds – chia, hemp, and flax – contain omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for both cardiovascular health and have potent anti-inflammatory properties (3).
