Acai superfood bites

I think yesterday was my second using Acai. I thought it would go great on any type of energy truffle so last night I came up with these Acai superfood bites. They were pretty good so I am glad I came up with another recipe that uses this ingredient.

On another note, my school adventure pretty much starts today. I am moving all the way up North to Poughkeepsie and to say that I am super excited is an understatement. It has been a long road to be able to accomplish just getting accepted into the program so I am really happy about that.

This chapter in my life is going to be full of challenges and sacrifices since I am leaving the kids behind for 2 years, however, I think the rewards are going to be huge in the near future.

Lucky for my the school is only 2 hours away from were my family lives so I will be able to visit them almost every weekend. Shew…

All day yesterday I was prepping my meals for the week. I don’t intend to gain weight or become unhealthy while in school so sticking to a tight schedule as far as meal planning an exercise routine is concerned is what I intend to do.

I believe it really doesn’t take much to have a meal plan in place. Just a bit of invested time at first to gather ingredients and recipes for the week ahead is pretty much it. Then devoting just an afternoon cooking for the week and you are done.

I think this method is better because it saves time doing food shopping and cooking through the week. All in all in a much better way and it saves time in the long run.

I was able to make chocolate almond butter overnight oats, caribbean rice and beans, gazpacho, pasta and the Acai superfood bites which will be my snack of the week. If this doesn’t last me I will prepare something simple like a wholesome salad a couple of times if any and I should be good to go.

Anyways, if you have noticed, these Acai superfood bites have no dates so for those that despise them this recipe is for you.

Enjoy!

  5. What a perfect bite!  Love the pumpkin and chocolate drizzle on top.  Very festive for fall.

  6. I was thinking maybe I could try these with pumpkin seed butter since my daughter is allergic to nuts.  Thanks for a great recipe idea!  They look delish!

  7. Just 10 minutes?! I’m sold. Great idea for a road trip snack! :) 

  8. I cent wait to make these! They look awesome!!

  9. These energy bites look ever so tempting with pumpkin and warm spices.

  10. These are better than a pie!! I could eat all of ’em and ask for more! :-D

  11. Is there any way to make these without a food processor? They sound delicious and I would like to make them, but a processor is not part of my kitchen equipment.

    Thanks.

  12. Would using peanut butter or cashew butter in place of almond butter change the taste or texture too much? (I’ve never had almond butter, so I’m not sure how strong of a taste it has, or what its consistency is like. Can’t find it anywhere around me!)

  13. Will the chocolate drizzle harden in the fridge? I’m trying to decide if I should make these ahead of time or serve the chocolate warm, as I will be bringing them to a function.

    Thanks

    • Yes it will. If you do it on site the chocolate will harden below 74 degrees, otherwise it may be soft and melty. I would suggest to do the drizzle on site because if it melts on the way there the bites may become a total mess. I hope this helps!
