This apple pomegranate acai smoothie bowl packs a powerfully healthy punch

I was looking for something super healthy and tasty to kick off my morning, and I think I found it in my apple pomegranate acai smoothie bowl. It’s vegan, gluten-free and high in protein as a bonus!

The health benefits of the acai alone include helping weight management, heart and skin health, and digestion; boosts immunity, energy, and mental functioning. The fact that it tastes good is just icing on the cake. Well now I can’t get icing or cake out of my head…a new smoothie recipe is brewing!

I’m writing a short and sweet intro today since it is the weekend and my recipe might not be at the top of your list for the day! Have a wonderful weekend!
