Happy New Year! I love the dawn of a brand new year. It’s a fun excuse to start things afresh. Feasting on decadent foods for the holidays makes refreshing your fridge with healthy foods a welcome task! I’m starting the new year off with a yummy Acai Smoothie Bowl. Smoothies or healthy shakes are my go to breakfast options. I always feel like if I can start the day off on the right foot, then at least I have one victory for the day. That seems to set the tone for the rest of the day!

Top it off with some blueberries, bananas, and hemp hearts for some texture and you are good to go!

How do you like your acai bowls? Thick like ice cream? Smooth like yogurt? I found that after making my acai bowl, it was helpful to pop it back in the freezer for a little while. That way it will firm up and feel more like a big treat bowl of ice cream!

Acai Smoothie Bowl


  • 4 Tbsp. Acai Powder
  • 4 Whole Frozen Bananas
  • 1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract


  1. Blend together in food processor until frosty and smooth.
  2. Enjoy immediately or freeze for later!

My favorite breakfast food is corned beef hash. Some of you also grew up loving it and know what I’m talking about. The Mary Kitchen kind right out of the can & cooked until it has crispy edges is the best, although there is a homemade Corned Beef Hash at my favorite breakfast spot in […]

Bran muffins are something that I grew up loving. They were a treat that was reserved for special occasions like birthdays, the first week of school, etc. My idea of a bran muffin is a light, fluffy, slightly sweet muffin. I lick the bowl of batter just like you would lick up cake batter. I […]
