Energizing Brazilian Breakfast Smoothie with Acai

brazilanbreakfast.JPG Energizing Brazilian Breakfast Smoothie with Acai
I am sitting here with an elephant-sized to do list. One slight problem: My two and a half year old son Jake does not seem to understand why paying bills, writing, taking and editing photos, cleaning the house, and making his breakfast takes precedence over reading a skyscraper high pile of books he just built. Should I read two books, then turn on Thomas The Tank Engine or Curious George and get on with the list? He is one smart cookie, and two books just won’t do. Another point, I start to cringe with guilt as I watch him staring into boob tube for more than 15 minute intervals. So the plan today while my freelancing husband is working, is to go back and fourth between entertaining Jake and chipping away at the daily business. Then a major push when he takes has his nap. Motherhood never looked more glamourous, non?

On days like these, I need a quick, easy, and nutritious breakfast. Something that gives me the rocket fuel to get through the first few hours of the day. Brazilian Breakfast is like having toast, cereal, and oatmeal all in one. Where’s the caffeine you ask? Once you get over the ceremony of your hands wrapped around a cup of tea or coffee in the morning (an olympic hurdle for me), you won’t have those energy peaks and valleys throughout the day. All of the components in this smoothie make you feel satisfied, bright, and awake. 

Why the name “Brazilian Breakfast?” The star ingredient is a superfood from Brazil called Acai (pronounced ah-sah-ee). This little berry is chock full of antioxidants, amino acids, and essential fatty acids that prevent premature aging. I have also included a small dose of Goji berries (also called Wolfberries). Hailing from Asia, they are one of the most nutrient dense berries on the planet. Prized for thousands of years, they are high in protein, amino acids, and trace minerals. The Acai and Goji berries combined give the smoothie it’s purple hazed hue. 

Brazilian Breakfast
1 packet of frozen Sambazon Acai berries thawed
1 banana
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
1 cup almond milk (soy, rice, or organic milk are great alternatives)
3 medjool dates pitted and chopped
1/4 cup New England Supernatural Granola (available in the bulk bins of your health food store, or use your favorite)
2 tablespoons goji berries
Optional: 1 teaspoon of agave

In a blender, add the acai, 1 tablespoon goji berries, frozen berries, banana, dates, and almond milk. Blend until smooth. Pour into a tall glass to 3/4 full. Fill the rest of the glass with the granola and sprinkle to the remainder of the goji berries. If you need an extra bit of sweetness, add a teaspoon of agave (the dates are naturally sweet, so they should really do the trick).

    I love having smoothies for breakfast. I miss the Cow's End! Do you get your berries at Whole Foods? I fear I won't be able to make this one while living in the north of England with no health food stores within walking distance. But I'll hold on to the recipe until I get back to Cali. I haven't tried super-foods yet (I think that's what it's called), so I'm going to take your advice on all that. Anti-aging sounds great to me!

    Hi Bethany,
    I buy frozen mixed berries (buy organic if you can) and throw 'em into the smoothie. As you are in the UK, I'm sure Sainsburys, Tesco, or even Waitrose might have Acai in frozen packets and Goji berries. I know Sainsbury's carrys agave syrup as I was there in April. Let me know if they don't have Acai or goji berries and I'd be happy to send some over for you to try.

    Hi Nicole, thanks for the great ideas. Like you I have have peaks and troughs if I have too much caffine or fruit (sugar). The smoothie looks like a great start to the day, we'll give it a try soon when Britian thaws out. M
