Banana Berry Acai Bowl Recipe (vegan)

Coconut Milk Acai Bowl
Five minutes is all it takes to start the day with a powerfully good breakfast. To make this vegan acai bowl, simply blend coconut milk with fresh banana, acai berry puree and frozen blueberries. Spoon the blended acai mixture into a bowl and sprinkle with good-for-you ingredients like almonds, coconut and hemp seeds.

Banana Berry Acai Bowl Recipe (vegan)
1/4 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
1 medium fresh banana, sliced
1 pack (3.5 ounces) frozen acai berry puree (I used Sambazon pure unsweetened acai)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon chopped almonds
2 teaspoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon hemp seeds

Place coconut milk and half of the banana slices in a blender container. Run pack of frozen acai under hot water to thaw slightly; break into chunks. Snip open pack and drop acai into blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Add frozen blueberries to blender; cover and blend until smooth. Mixture should be thick; stop blender and scrape down sides as needed.

Pour mixture into a bowl. Top with the remaining banana slices, almonds, coconut and hemp seeds.

Makes 1 serving

Tip: I use a Vita-Mix high speed blender, which makes quick work of blending frozen fruit. If you use a standard blender, you may need to add 1 to 2 tablespoons additional coconut milk or slightly thaw the blueberries for easier blending.

Hemp Hummus Recipe

Hemp HummusLooking for a power snack? Try this protein packed hemp hummus dip. It’s made with chickpeas, tahini, fresh lemon juice and raw hemp seeds. The hemp seeds add a boost of healthy fats and protein.Hemp Hummus DipFor added flavor and nutrition, I sprinkle the hummus with extra hemp seeds before serving with fresh veggies and hearty crackers.

Hemp Hummus Recipe
1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup tahini
2 tablespoons raw shelled hemp seeds
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Dash cayenne pepper

In a food processor, combine chickpeas, tahini, hemp seeds, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, cumin and cayenne. Cover and process until smooth. If the hummus is too thick, add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the hummus is smooth and reaches your desired consistency. (I usually add 2 to 3 tablespoons water.) Taste and add more salt or lemon juice, if needed. Serve with fresh cut veggies and crackers. If desired, sprinkle with additional hemp seeds.

Makes about 2 cups hemp hummus
