Raw Açaí Berry Bowl

Blend together: 1 frozen banana, 3 soaked dates, a handful of frozen blueberries, a handful of frozen acai berries and their juice (can be purchased in bulk, but powdered form works too), water or almond milk, pinch of spirulina, and a pinch of cinnamon. The consistency should be similar to soft-serve ice cream once it's blended. If you want the contrasting-coloured garnish at the end, like you see in the picture, reserve some of the banana date mixture before adding the blueberries. In a large cereal bowl, put down a layer of raw granola. Spread over your frozen blueberry mix. Top with whatever garnishes you like. I went with raspberries, sliced banana, bee-pollen (see nutritional benefits here), and pomegranate seeds. Add three dots of your white mixture and swirl it around with a knife. This is a really nice 10-minute breakfast. And, once you get the "fancy" ingredients stocked in your pantry, they won't seem so exotic. Enjoy!
