Make-Ahead Acai Bowl

Make-Ahead Acai Bowl (makes 2 bowls)
Acai Smoothie Packet (mine was 1 packet of Sambazon smoothie packs found at frozen fruit section)
Banana (1-2 for blending, 1 for toppings) blend one can be frozen
Frozen Strawberries (about a cup) 
Frozen Pitaya aka Dragon Fruit (about 1/2 cup)
Apple Juice (about 1/2 cup or 3/4 cup)
Honey (2 tbs for blender, drizzle for topping)
Granola (1/2 cup, I used Fiber One Protein cereal)
You can can omit pitaya or add frozen blueberries if you want. You can use fresh fruits too but it's best to have about half the fruits frozen to get the thick consistency.
1) Place acai, banana for blending, strawberries, pitaya, apple juice, and honey in a blender until blended.
2) Pour them in individual bowls
(if prepping for breakfast for next day or two) cover and freeze overnight. Then just take out about 30-60 mins before ideal breakfast time.
3) To serve, top acai mixture with sliced banana and granola, then drizzle honey on top.
I take my frozen bowl to work in the morning, by the time i get to work (about an hour later), my acai bowl is ready to eat and i just needed to add the toppings.
