Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you are looking for an impressive breakfast in bed to serve to her then my friend, I have you covered! Açai bowls may have been around a while, but I only recently tried them for the first time and I am officially hooked.

Last week when it was too hot to turn on a stove here in Long Beach I was scrambling for no cook meals that were hearty enough to double as lunch and dinner that my whole family would love, so I decided to let them in on my açai bowl discovery. Todd was a bit skeptical because he isn’t a huge sweet smoothie fan and especially not in the place of dinner. I knew he would be a fan since açai naturally isn’t very sweet and the simple addition of apple juice is enough to take away the berries subtle bitterness. It was obvious when every bowl I served up came back empty that my family was sold on these hearty açai bowls and I know you will be too.

      Hey Donna,

      I get mine in the freezer section at the grocery store next to the frozen fruit. Stores like Whole Foods will definitely have them.
