FONIO AÇAÍ BOWL
February 27, 2020 by Jason Chan
The delicious, healthy, and fuss free little bowl that’ll keep you going all day long. Tailor the recipe to suit your tastes. If you’re vegan or prefer a dairy-free breakfast leave out the milk and yogurt! Replace the milk with equal parts almond milk and the yogurt with coconut cream. Not a fan of fruits? Swap out the fruit topping and hide those fruits in your bowl by adding some melted chocolate, peanut butter and walnuts. We won’t judge (in fact we may even join you)!
