For those of you, like me, who don't have time to whip up a smashed-avo-with-poached-eggs-and-dukka-on-organic-rye-and-a-side-of-micro-herbs each morning this recipe is for you.
Simple, easy, and whipped up in 5 minutes with the help of some pre-frozen fruit, smoothie size acai packs and a nutri-bullet, this is my go to breakfast / brunch / lunch when I don't have time to spend cooking.
To make it a little more enticing for those of you who want that little extra boost as part of your breakfast, I add 2 main supplements to my Acai Balance Bowl - Maca Powder and Nudest Good Green Stuff (and have explained why below).
But without further ado, this is my recipe of the week, the Acai Balance Bowl:
- 1 x Amazonia Acai frozen smoothie sachet;
- 1 x banana (I often substitute for frozen mixed berries);
- ¼ cup of almond milk or coconut water (the liquid helps to blend the frozen ingredients);
- 1 teaspoon of Nuzest Greens Powder (greens to boost my immunity and health, it has a slight sweet flavour which you’ll notice in the bowl);
- 1 teaspoon of Loving Earth Maca Powder (hormone balancing); and
- 3 tablespoons of BSKT Veganola to finish.
Put everything except the Veganola in a strong blender or a nutri-bullet and blitz until combined, you may need to let it sit for a minute or two to defrost slightly. Top with your Veganola and breakfast or lunch is sorted!

Nuzest Good Green Stuff
It is so much more than just your normal greens. Nuzest's Good Green Stuff is a potent blend of carefully selected fruits, vegetables and herbs - with added vitamins, minerals, probiotics, antioxidants and other essential nutrients. It packs a punch with over 75 of the very best ingredients for optimum health. The Good Green Stuff has a slightly sweet flavour so I recommend putting a smaller amount than the scoop that's in there in your smoothies and acai bowl unless you're ok with the flavour coming through (it's a good sweet, just depends on your taste).

Maca Powder is a Peruvian specialty and as explained by Adele from VegieHead is 'reputed to have positive effects on hormones, mood and libido' hence the 'balance' bowl reference! I use this to help keep my skin glowing, and my body and emotions balanced, but make sure you only put a teaspoon in at the most until you are used to this potent superfood.
