Recipe JAMES DUIGAN
Our cafe in Notting Hill is becoming famous for the açai bowls we serve. Açai is one of the most nutritious fruits in the world. We blend ours with one of the Bodyism supplements to increase the protein content in each bowl and to make it even more delicious.
Our açai supplier, ‘Rayder’, is an activist for preventing deforestation in the Amazon and açai is one of the only no-timber products to come from the rainforest. So, make sure you choose high-quality frozen açai (you can find it in health stores or online) and feel proud that you are helping to save the planet and looking after your body, too. If you don’t have the Bodyism supplements, substitute them for a tablespoon of hemp seeds.
100g frozen açai pulp
Half a frozen banana
1 scoop Bodyism Body Brilliance or Bodyism Protein Excellence
¼ cup almond milk
½ cup frozen mixed berries for the toppings
2 tbsp almond butter
2 tbsp Simply Granola (see page 102 in the book ‘Blueprint for Health’)
2 tbsp fresh berries
Any other superfood you’d like: goji berries, hemp seeds, bee pollen, coconut flakes, chia seeds!
1. Put the açai, banana, Bodyism supplement and almond milk into a blender. Whizz it up until all the açai is mixed (if there are any unblended pieces left, then add more almond milk).
2. Spoon into bowls. Add the toppings equally into each bowl. Start with the almond butter, then granola and finally sprinkle with berries and any other superfood you want!
Top Tip: Texture is everything. Aim for an ice-cream consistency, not a smoothie — it is an art!
