Green Kitchen Travels
Makes 2 bowls

In Santa Barbara we rented the top floor of a large and lavish house only a few blocks from the beach. After having spent the previous weeks in shabby motels, we felt like a royal family up there. The owner was an
artist of some kind and she agreed to let us stay there for a very low rent. Often on our travels, people are surprisingly kind to us. It must be the baby in the pushchair that helps soften their hearts. In a back alley,
only a short walk from the house, we found a café where all the cool kids hung out. The caf.é served an array
of purple acai bowls that we soon learned were both delicious and very healthy. After leaving Santa Barbara
and continuing down south, we started stocking up on frozen acai pulp and making our own bowls whenever
we had access to a kitchen. In Sweden (and many parts of the world) frozen acai. is both hard to find and very
expensive so nowadays we make our bowls with acai. powder and other kinds of frozen berries. It can be
found in most health food stores.

  • Step 1

    Place the frozen fruits, a.a. powder and milk in a strong
    high-speed blender. Add the nut butter, protein powder
    or soaked nuts or seeds, if using. Mix until creamy and
    smooth. Aim for a frozen yoghurt consistency. If you do
    not have a strong high-speed blender, use a hand blender
    and mix in a tall jug. Spoon the mixture into bowls
    and top with sliced fruit, hemp seeds, bee pollen, goji
    berries and a drizzle of honey, if using. Serve immediately.
