Make Your Own Açaí Bowl (See Jane Eat)

I’m a former breakfast skipper.  I only started eating it (because apparently a cup of coffee doesn’t count) because of pregnancy.  My mom insisted I start eating a nutritious breakfast, but even after I have this baby, I plan on continuing this habit.  When I start my day with something healthy, I don’t feel so ravenous at lunch and it starts my day off on the right foot.  I usually drink a kale or spinach breakfast smoothie but sometimes I need to change it up.  Enter: the trendy açaí bowl.  Topped with whatever you heart desires, this breakfast is satisfying and fulfills the icy and fruity cravings I’ve been having.
Blend together:
– 1 packet of Sambozan smoothie blend (I picked mine up at Whole Foods, but I’m sure you can find any brand at your local health food store, Costco, etc)
– 1 frozen banana (great to have on hand for smoothies, too!)
– 1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
– 1 tsp chia seeds
– OPTIONAL:  handful of kale (any green of your choice is a great boost!)
Top with:
– fresh fruit of your choice (I am loving sliced banana, strawberries, blueberries and blackberries)
– granola
– coconut flakes
– nuts
– more chia/flax/hemp seeds
– raw honey
