Hope you enjoyed part one of my California Road Trip adventure. Here is part two!
We headed back to Santa Barbara and from there stayed a couple of nights where I made sure to enjoy my new addiction, Acai Bowls!, from Backyard Bowls. I really should just write a whole post on these things and this place. They’re awesome. I think I will in fact. Suffice it to say, not all acai bowls are the same I learned when trying an acai bowl from another place, in Palm Springs. Backyard Bowls definitely has the magic touch and I had one each day. A large one, too! Which is a lot!
The picture below truly doesn’t do this magnificent concoction of texture heaven and flavor nirvana justice, but it is the best I have. This bowl had acai, banana, peanut butter, hemp milk, hemp protein powder, and mango blended. Then, add granola, sliced bananas, hemp seeds, and agave (sometimes I opted no agave). I changed their offering a bit by asking for mango in place of strawberries because the strawberries weren’t organic, and I had agave in place of honey (I wish I could have honey because I love the taste, but I’m vegan for ethical reasons and the bees aren’t making the honey for me ;)).
Mmmmm I loved these acai bowls… It’s like ice cream in the morning. I will definitely re-create and share it once I’ve nailed it or made something equally delicious. I have the components in my kitchen now.
Here’s that video I was writing about … Kamea watches it over and over. I still can’t believe my eyes. Incredible strength.
