Make Acai Bowls at Home! Make Acai Bowls at Home!

I’m kind of in love with these Acai Bowls you guys. It’s a problem?! Ok, not really. But based on how boiling hot I’ve been with this little furnace of a baby growing burning inside of me, I’m guzzling all sorts of liquids and eating all the cold things. Smoothie bowl? Right up my alley. Considering it’s getting harder and harder for me to eat sugar, this frozen-fruit-turned-into-soft-serve-thing has become all the more appealing.

Before I ever really knew about Acai {pronounced ah-sigh-ee} Bowls, I kept seeing pictures of these gorgeous fruit filled smoothie bowls on Instagram. After a little more digging, I was able to find out WHERE to buy what I needed to make these, HOW to make them good {ie how I like them} and WHAT I needed to add to make them completely child-friendly so my kids would willingly gobble these up for breakfast or lunch.

Turns out you don’t need very much stuff to make these amazing bowls AND there are lots of options and variations so you can make them how you like.

Well, I’m almost done my Christmas shopping!

I know we’re not even to Thanksgiving yet, but I gotta stay on top of these kinds of things or else before we know it, Christmas will come and go and I’ll have a third child in my arms. 47 days until Christmas, 74 days until Gord and I become outnumbers with them kiddos.

Tis the season!

And, just so were clear, ‘almost done my Christmas shopping’ means I have every Christmas gift on my amazon wish list. All I have to do is click ‘buy’. Buuuut, my daughter is changing her Christmas list daily, so I’m waiting until something sticks and she mentions it more than once. She did say she wanted an iPhone more than once, but lets be honest: that’s never going to happen.

“But I could text you Mommy!”

“I could watch Netflix in my room, Mommy!”

“I wouldn’t have to share the iPad with Blake, Mommy!”

This girl!!! I did not expect this level of persistence from my 6 year old.
