Tropical Coconut Chia Cacao Acai Bowl Recipe

I first heard about acai bowls when pro surfer Rob Machado talked them up as his healthy breakfast that he’d discovered while on tour in Brazil. He brought the idea to Hawaii and now you can find someone turning out acai bowls near every major surf break. 

Not that I often listen to surfers for nutritional advice but I sought out acai and started making smoothies and acai bowls on a regular basis and got re-inspired to make them after my recent trip to Belem.

It’s hard to go wrong with them but this Tropical Coconut Chia Cacao Açai Bowl recipe is a combo of fruit, sweet, and crunch is one of my favorites.
