Pineapple Express Acai Bowl and Pan Toasted Granola

Pineapple is my favorite fruit on planet earth alone, and its extra yummy on top of this acai bowl! It's always great to pack in extra veggies whenever you can, especially for breakfast. Try adding frozen spinach to your acai blend, I promise you won't even taste it. You can even make warm homemade granola to top your frozen bowl with in just minutes.

  • 1 bag Sambazon Frozen Organic Acai
  • 1 - 2 tbsp almond milk 
  • 1/4 cup frozen chopped spinach 
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries 
  • fresh pineapple chunks and banana
  • Toasted Almond Madagascar Vanilla Granola - see below for homemade recipe  
In VitaMix or high powered blender, blend acai, almond milk, spinach and blueberries. Blend the mixture quickly on high speed using the blender plunger so it quickly freezes into sorbet, and doesn't melt. 
Scoop out frozen mixture into a bowl and top with pineapple, banana and granola. Enjoy right away!
