Autumn Berry Bowl
Acai recipes are everywhere right now but this incredibly simple (and simply incredible) autumn berry bowl is your new must have recipe for fall and beyond.
What is Acai?
Aside from being an absolute nightmare to pronounce (*ah-sai-eee*), this Brazillian miracle berry is this year’s new must-have superfood and lucky for you, we’ve got all the best recipes. The Acai berry is a total knockout. Most people describe the taste as somewhere between dark chocolate, red wine and ripe berries. So yeah… we’re pretty sure that you’re going to love it!
Is there still any sunshine left right now? Honestly we’re not sure. But we do know that you should still be making the most of your meals. Acai grows in the sun-soaked floodplains of northern Brazil and we’re certain that everytime you eat one of these berries you get a little bit more of the samba spirit in you.
This is pretty vital and you should absolutely be making the most of it because we all know that once it gets really dark, it’s going to be porridge and Netflix… every single day until spring.
Here at Vegavero though, as always, help is at hand, and this week it comes in the form of our favourite dancer/personal trainer/ model/recipe maker extraordinaire; the absolutely fabulous Chloe Amor Hurd aka @nourishingnaturallywithchloe who has smashed it out of the park with her lavishly layered Acai Berry Bowl.
