A few years ago I went to Hawaii with one of my besties, Meg. While we were there we fell in love with acai bowls! They were filled with frozen acai, topped with granola, strawberries, bananas, blueberries, honey... we both loved them and had them as often as we could before leaving.  When we arrived back home to Long Island we bought all the ingredients and made them for ourselves and some friends.  Everyone loved them!  After that I even started looking into opening up my own acai cafe but then my husband and I decided to move over seas. I have not been able to find frozen acai in The Netherlands so I have turned to making smoothie bowls made of different fruits...and they are delicious. They add so much variety to my weekend breakfasts! I love having a smoothie bowl and then heading to the gym...such a fantastic start to my weekends!  The great thing is they are so good for you but taste like a dessert! They are also great for kids to "decorate" using all the toppings!
