I'm seriously bummed that the Olympics are over, so I decided to bring a bit of Brazil into my kitchen!

A few years ago I spent three weeks hopping around Brazil and picked up a major addiction to Acai Bowls! It’s like a smoothie bowl but better—and the base made with acai is ah-mazing (and amazing for you). The bottom layer of these bowls is made in a blender, and then you get to jazz it up based on your topping preference. I mix it up with kiwis, mangos, bananas, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, cherries, peaches, nectarines, AND some granola! The possibilities are endless.

So while we all cry a little bit when we go to turn on the TV and there’s no gymnastics to watch or swimming world records being crushed, at least we know there’s a delicious Acai Bowl just minutes away from being enjoyed if you have everything in your fridge!
