When I think back on all of my years of schooling–everything I read, everything I heard, everything I memorized (and the many things I promptly forgot)–there are a few little gems that have stuck with me. One of them, from my college soils class, is this:
“Dirt is just misplaced soil.”
How perfect. Dirt is just misplaced soil. A weed is just a misplaced plant. These are the things I think about as I’m digging in the garden. And the digging is starting to pay dividends!
Green Goddess Acai Bowl
* I’ve found that frozen fruits provide a better consistency. If you use fresh, cut back on the coconut milk by a tablespoon or two at first so it doesn’t get too soupy. ** Tip for peeling ginger: use the edge of a spoon!
Place all ingredients (except the toppings) in a high-powered blender and blend.
If mixture is too thick to blend, add extra coconut milk 1 T at a time. Be careful, though, as it will go from acai bowl consistency to acai smoothie consistency quickly!
Pour the acai mixture into a bowl and top with your toppings of choice.
