Kefir Acai Bowl

Recently, an Oregon based juice company reached out to me on Instagram to invite me to try their products. Their juices are organic, non - GMO, hand crafted in small batches, and they work with local farms, which I love. After trying them, I found that their juices are perfect in our smoothies and smoothie bowls! 

For years, I've tried to eat healthy, organic, sustainably, and local as often as possible. Then on March 20th, I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. I thought of all the cookbooks I'd read over the years. Most of the Paleo books were written by people who were ill and found that the diet increased their chances at better health. Not that I think I got cancer by eating the wrong food. And not that I think eating all these items will eliminate the cancer. I'm actually having surgery on Monday, then a little radiation a month later. And now I really, really wanna eat healthy to try and keep any future diagnosis of cancer off my chart!

I looked up cancer fighting foods, and here are a couple of new things that I found. 

KEFIR - Kefir benefits in the fight against cancer are due to its large anti-carcinogenic role inside the body. It can slow the growth of early tumors and their enzymatic conversions from non-carcinogenic to carcinogenic. (From Dr. Axe) You can find it in the yogurt section of the grocery store. I eat a cup of 99% lactose free Lifeway kefir everyday with a spoonful of hemp seeds. And I add a splash of the lactose free drinkable kefir to my daughter's smoothie every morning.

HEMP HEARTS - We like the benefits of hemp hearts because of my eczema and my daughter's PMS symptoms. (From Healthline) Hemp seeds are also on the alkaline food chart. They are full of Omega 3's & Omega 6's too.

There are also tons of other great things you can add into your smoothies for health benefits like spirulina, probiotics, green tea, and apple cider vinegar. Here's how we put together this smoothie bowl.

We used Oregon based Genesis Organic Juice. We love how good they are for you, and how good they taste!

  • 2 Sambazon Acai Original Blend Packs
  • 1 banana, half for blending and half for topping
  • 1/4 cup Genesis Organic Strawberry Lemonade
  • 1 teaspoon hemp hearts
  • 1/4 cup strawberry kefir
  • 1/4 cup frozen fruit
  1. Place the acai packs in warm water a few minutes, until you're able to break each into smaller pieces, then cut the top open and place in a blender or what I use, a Nutribullet. 
  2. Add remaining ingredients, blend until smooth, then pour into a bowl.
  3. Top with fresh fruit, unsweetened coconut flakes, and more hemp seeds.


  1. This is a great variant of healthy breakfast. Usually I eat fried eggs or porridge in the morning but sometimes I want something different and special. I work providing homework help online and I need a lot of energy for brain work. I know that I' not active but mind work also spends a lot of calories.

  2. Eating a morning meal is a healthy habit if you're watching your weight. Research shows that regular breakfast eaters tend to be leaner and dieters are more successful at losing weight—and keeping it off—when they eat breakfast.
