Hawaiian Style Acai Bowl

Upon returning from Hawaii, Sophie (@coconutandbliss) and I made it our mission to recreate out favourite acai bowl of all time from Kalalea Juice Hale in Kauai. We were obsessed with the ‘King Kong’ acai, blended with banana, cacao and almond milk… but it was the toppings that really set it apart. The Kalalea bowl was topped with homemade granola (we are going to try our best to recreate this asap!), roasted macadamias, goji berries, cacao nibs, coconut, cinnamon, cacao syrup and a homemade, creamy coconut peanut butter.

We have created a recipe that we think is pretty similar – good enough to have been my breakfast every single day since I’ve been home.
