This post is about the Rainbow Acai Smoothie Bowl and is sponsored by Sambazon. As always all opinions expressed here are 100% my own.
The kids are officially back at school and that means there is less time in the morning for big breakfasts with all of the trimmings. It doesn’t mean we have to skimp on flavor or nutrition though. The time that it would take to make a quick micro-meal, can be spent on picking fresh whole foods that will keep our bodies going strong all day long. I’m so obsessed with finding ways to live green, I’ve even devoted a tab on my blog called Go Green. Enter the acai smoothie bowl…
Acai bowls are the newest rage and everywhere I look I see fabulous new recipes with these colorful and delicious bowls of earth candy. They come in all sorts of flavors and even themes. You can add proteins, berries, or even greens. You start with an acai base that comes in frozen packs. You start by taking them to thaw a bit before blending. These Sambazon Acai Superfruit Packs make smoothie bowls a cinch with the convenient individual packaging. On this particular bowl I wanted bananas for sweetness, raspberries & blueberries because well, duh! I also included goji berries for good measure. No berry shall be excluded on my watch.
Simply add two packs of the individually packaged superfruit packs into a blender with 1/4 – 1/2 cup of water or apple juice, and add any fruits, berries, or seeds that you like. I wanted to pack this Rainbow Acai Smoothie Bowl with antioxidants. With school officially in session, the family is upping all of their healthy omegas and immune boosting antioxidants. These Acai Superfruit Packs include Guarana sustainably sourced from the Brazilian Amazon. They are made with organic and GMO-free ingredients. Move over yogurt, there’s a new sheriff in town!
I also included granola, hemp seeds, and bee pollen. You can finish off your smoothie bowl with a drizzle of honey, but this bowl was packed with sweetness so I didn’t include any.
Football season is approaching and we are getting ready to put our game-face on! Football is enjoyed by all in our home, the boys love learning more each season with their dad. With a new stadium nearby, we plan on taking them to quite a few of our local college games. There is an excitement about college games, and the tailgating is a part of that excitement. Here are a few things that can help get you started for your tailgating experience.
In order to pull off a proper tailgating experience, you need the right equipment. In this hot South Florida sun I highly recommend the Coleman Straight Leg Instant Canopy Gazebo from the Coleman Tailgating Ultimate Bundle online at Walmart.
This, along with the Coleman Compact Outdoor Table can help get you started. Comfort is key in creating the perfect tailgating experience. Creating a cool space to sit and relax while you prepare for your favorite game is crucial to enjoying the experience. Coleman offers a range of products that are perfect for game time tailgating. The Oversized Quad Chair with a Cooler Pouch, or the Coleman 42-can soft cooler with liner will help you feel right at home no matter where you set up camp.
I was able to purchase from any of the Walmart Bundles online with ease and the items were delivered within two days!
We searched a lot of online tailgating recipes before we found some that actually worked. Just because something tastes great at home, doesn’t mean it translates well for tailgating. A really good marinade is a must for all meat hitting the grill, but don’t just stop there. Just like camping, there are a ton of recipe hacks online you can find to help you keep your tailgating party going.
Keeping portions small is helpful so that everyone doesn’t get too full right away. By serving smaller portions you keep the folks coming back for more until the game is ready to start.
Some of the best times during a tailgate is when everyone gets to sit back and enjoy the party. No one can handle serving everyone all at once. Make tailgating a community effort. Assign simple tasks for each of your participants so no one seems overwhelmed. It’ll create a sense of community and get everyone fed a little bit faster. That’s always a plus, right?
Don’t forget to sit back and enjoy yourself. Tailgating is about celebrating with an inspired community ready to have some fun! Are you ready for some footbaaaaaawl???
