Tasting attributes: Citrus hints of All-Sass Grape Nectar infused with grapefruit #WAKEUP your tastebuds and welcome spinach in the AM 

Stand up to the traditional acai bowl and enjoy the simplicity of this nutrient dense combination of natural sugars, fiber, and vitamins. Not only is this meal a light and filling breakfast, but it all comes together in just one blender, one bowl, and 5 minutes.

Many smoothies and acai bowls are loaded with hidden preservatives and sweeteners that disrupt our digestion and make us bloated. Commercial pre-packaged formulas combine berry puree or powder with tons of added sugars to preserve the sweet taste and ensure they last for many months. Instead, replace these unnecessary artificial sugars with the naturally occurring sugars in California Grape Nectar sugar alternative! 

All-Sass is the ultimate choice for some sweetness in your smoothie because it is such a complement to everything fruity! To balance out fruit sugar with veggies, opt for spinach. Your palate won't even recognize the handful of greens due to the strong aromas and sweetness of All-Sass Grape Nectar! Why would you put spinach in your breakfast? Because Grape Nectar's inherently pleasant taste creates a pure and refreshing dance in your mouth. No other sugar makes spinach such a sweet breakfast!

Side note: this bowl is easily 100% vegan! Scratch the honey and forget the bee pollen, Grape Nectar highlights the fruits of our earth, including the delicious sugars from wine grapes, without harming any animals in the process.

This Grapefruit Smoothie Bowl pairs healthy, naturally occuring sugars with fiber from fruit and leafy greens so your body effortlessly metabolizes and transforms sugars into energy, preparing you for a successful day! All-Sass grape sweetener offsets the bitter presence from spinach and the sourness of grapefruit, creating a soft and pleasant taste. One teaspoon of Grape Nectar is all you need, keeping your breakfast low cal and simply wonderful.

Best enjoyed as a refreshing, light breakfast on a hot day, our Grapefruit Smoothie Bowl is sure to help you #WAKEUP

Ingredients

(makes 1 serving)

  • 1 frozen banana
