Today I want to show you how we use FAGE Total Greek Yogurt from breakfast through dinner in our house. My whole family loves FAGE Yogurt because it is thick and creamy. It tastes like dessert, but is protein-packed!
FAGE is an all-natural Greek yogurt that is Non-GMO Project Verified. It has no added sugar, and it is high in protein...but shhhh, don't tell the kids that this yogurt is healthy.
You are going to love this easy acai bowl recipe, and as a bonus, I am including easy ways to include FAGE in your lunch and dinner too! I love the added protein when I add FAGE Total Greek Yogurt to my recipes.
What is an acai bowl?
An acai bowl is like a supercharged healthy fruit smoothie bowl. Acai berries are from South American rainforests and they are full of antioxidants, fiber, and calcium. They are heart-healthy and are packed with Omega 3s.
You can buy acai puree at many grocery stores and when blended with FAGE Total Greek Yogurt, it makes an awesome breakfast or post-workout snack!
What fruits can you add?
You will love how so many fruits can work in an acai berry bowl. Acai bowl ingredients can include:
- Berries like strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries. Check out this easy strawberry smoothie bowl recipe!
- Fruits like the fresh pear I use in this Pear Smoothie Bowl recipe.
- Shredded coconut
- Nuts like pecans and walnuts
- Seeds like chia and sunflower
- Peanut butter, because...who doesn't love peanut butter?
To make the best acai bowls, I like to add frozen acai puree, a ripe banana, and FAGE Total Greek Yogurt into a blender with a little almond milk. (Feel free to add your favorite protein powder if you like.) Top your berry bowl with shredded coconut, chia seeds, sliced bananas, and sweet blueberries. I like to drizzle peanut butter on top too :-).
Add frozen bananas to a blender.
Add frozen Acai and creamy FAGE Total 0% Greek Yogurt to the blender.
Pour in your favorite milk. I used almond milk for this recipe.
Blend the smoothie until well blended.
Pour the acai mixture into a bowl.
Add shredded coconut and fresh blueberries to the acai bowl.
