Açaí Love

Since graduating this past summer, if there's one thing I appreciate more than anything now that I've started working, it's time. Time to eat, time to sleep and most importantly, time to spend in the kitchen. Due to the combination of lack of sleep, exhaustion and poor meal planning, I haven't spend nearly enough time in the kitchen as I should. One thing I am always grateful for, however, is the simplicity of smoothies. Literally speaking, it's as easy as throwing your ingredients in a blender and pressing the start button! It's so tempting to reach for junk when you're hungry, stressed out and have zero time. Luckily for you and me, even amongst the busiest of days, smoothies are here to save us. I whipped this smoothie bowl together in less than 10 minutes. You see? It's easy peasy.
