Try this delicious acai bowl as a breakfast treat or brunch. Despite this bowl containing a variety of healthy ingredients, the real magic is in the power of the acai berry. Considered as one of the top superfoods, acai berries have powerful antioxidant properties as well as displaying a superb micronutrient profile. The fibre found in the skins of the acai berry can also aid digestion greatly.

To make your acai bowl, begin my making your yoghurt mix by blending your Greek yoghurt, acai powder and teaspoon of cashew butter together. Remember the best acai bowls are served in layers, so once your yoghurt mix is ready, pour half of the mixture into a bowl. Using half of your granola mix, sprinkle an even layer over the top of the yoghurt. Repeat this process once more, so go for another layer of yoghurt, topped with the remainder of your granola. Next, chop your banana and use the rest of your ingredients to decorate the top of your bowl as shown, or get creative and make your own design.
