Feeling the heat?  Skip the fro-yo and and whip up your own frozen treat. While acai has been touted for having some mighty superpowers, its antioxidant and anti-aging benefits, similar to the properties of most berries and grapes, are for real.  What I love about it, aside from being delicious, is that it truly is a blank canvas.  You can easily toss some kale into the blender (and no one would be the wiser...) or maybe add some peanut or almond butter to the mix.  Top with granola, sliced bananas, toasted nuts and possibly drizzle some maple syrup or honey.  Float some coconut oil, add a splash of cashew milk, whatever it takes to make you happy.  Say hello to your new go-to summer breakfast.

Whip the acai with the milk and banana in a blender.  Pour into a bowl and top as you please.
