Açai Berry Bowl with Kiwi and Chia Seeds

I stopped making açai smoothie bowls for a while because I couldn’t justify spending so much money on açai freezer packs. Then, I figured out that Trader Joe’s sells the same thing for waaaay cheaper.

Cue: this açai berry smoothie bowl. I combined a freezer pack with some berries, half a banana, almond milk, and yogurt. Then I cut up some strawberries and kiwi and put that on top. I also like the sprinkle of chia seeds for effect.

The design came together after I decided to do a layer of kiwis. I kept alternating strawberries and kiwis until it was almost full, and then I brainstormed about how to finish the middle. I’d like to say that I had the whole design planned ahead of time, but honestly, it was a spur of the moment thing.

In other news, I’m back on black coffee. I’d given it up for a while because I started drinking turmeric tea in the morning when I got to work (yes, I know how cliché that sounds). So I mooched off the office coffee machine this morning and got a regular cup of coffee. I’m not going to lie, I miss the turmeric. But the coffee is so good. It makes me wonder how I ever gave it up.

In more unrelated news, I’ve been running a lot lately. I like to go to Forest Park after work and run to the Art Museum and back. In the middle, I force myself to run up the stairs by this World’s Fair Pavilion. The only thing that gets me through is Rihanna. When I put on this song at full volume, I feel like nothing can stop me. Not even the quiet put persistent voice telling me that I’ll die on the way to the top.
