Superfood acai and healthy, fiber-filled muesli combine in the ultimate parfait! Whether you treat it as a dessert or snack, you’re sure to love the mix of cool, creaminess from the sorbet with the crunchy, sweetness of the crisp topping. Easy to make, perfect for all ages, and packed with nutrients!
Can you believe I’ve never had an acai bowl?
Yup…not one. Even being the major foodie that I am, I’ve never had the opportunity to get one! The one time I planned to try them in NYC, I was greeted with a closed sign on the little cafe I was heading to. BUMMER.
But fate seems to have me in its blessings because just when I was oogling some gorgeous acai bowls on Instagram, I got an email from a friend asking me if I’d like to participate in a SUPERFOOD SHOWDOWN. I had no idea what that was, but I knew I liked the sound of it. 😉
Bob’s Red Mill and Sambazon teamed up to hold an awesome contest for foodies and bloggers alike! They’re calling it the SuperFood Showdown and the challenge is to create a one-of-a-kind recipe tasty enough for a food lover, healthy enough for an athlete!
Yes the Olympics are over, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t all still reminiscing about the amazing feats of the athletes in Rio! So inspired by the games, those two awesome companies are asking a few select people to combine healthy, delicious foods that not only fuel your right, but taste amazing.
I am ALWAYS up for a challenge (especially when it involves food!), so of course I was game!
Once I selected a few Bob’s Red Mill products and got some Sambazon coupons, I went to work on brainstorming my unique snack creation.
What resulted was a delicious mix of cool and creamy, sweet and tart, healthy and delicious. Not to mentioned PACKED with superfoods from the amazing Samabazon Acai sorbet that I used.
Originally I was going to make a homemade Acai bowl using the Sambazon Acai packs, but once I saw their full line of products and found out that they made sorbet, I was inspired to make a crazy delicious SORBET PARFAIT.
Alas, my first meeting with an Acai bowl still hasn’t happened….but I think this recipe wholly makes up for it. 😉
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large mixing bowl, add all crisp ingredients. Stir to combine, then use fingers to break down any clumps of coconut sugar or coconut flour.
- Spread mixture on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes until golden brown.
- Let crisp cool completely. Split the crisp into two equal portions. Take a tall glass or ice cream dish and layer a ⅓ of the crisp mixture on the bottom, top with ¼ cup of sorbet, and repeat with another ⅓ of the crisp mixture and the remaining ¼ cup of sorbet. Use the remaining ⅓ of your crisp mixture to top the parfait. Repeat this process with a second glass or dish for two servings.
Crunchy, gluten-free muesli tops cold creamy bites of delicious Acai sorbet. The perfect end of summer treat and great for snacking on whether you’re 5 or 50! Everyone loves a healthy snack that TASTES like dessert, and this recipe is that. It uses high quality Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free muesli and coconut flour and my latest obsession, Acai sorbet, from Sambazon.
This recipe pretty much proves that when two amazing companies team up, there’s no telling what amazing creations that will come out of it! Superfoods, health benefits, and delicious flavors are abound in my Superfood Sorbet Parfaits with Gluten-Free Muesli Crisp. But like I always say, don’t take my word for it…try them for yourself!
And if you really like this recipe (and my blog!), I would be HONORED if you could support me in winning this contest! All you have to do is head to my instagram page where I’ve posted a picture of my recipe and like the post! That’s it. Just a double tap on a picture to help me realize my goal of being the SUPERFOOD SHOWDOWN winner. Thanks so much in advance for your likes! 🙂
