Acai Bowl Recipe

when we need a mid week pick-me-up
there's only one thing that is both
1. easy enough for our lazy selves
AND 
2. tasty enough to satisfy even the biggest foodie cravings
enter: the acai smoothie bowl

only four things you need for this one:
1/4 cup almond milk
1 banana
1 cup strawbs
2 acai juice pads (we nabs ours at whole foods)

1

if y'all didn't know the acai berry is just so hot right now

2

spiritually not physically

3

they're from Brazil
(you know that country where they're playing some sport or something at the mo)

3a

and it's also the hippest superberry in town

7

BACK TO THE RECIPE

5

so all you do is chop up the banana

6

and then add all the ingredients into your blender-y device
and blend

8

but first let me take a selfie

16

we were feeling in a particularly chocolatey mood

8a

so added in a handful of cacao nibs after the initial blend

9

and then blended again

10

you're after a pretty thick and goopy consistency 

11

if it's too thin try adding in some more banana

12

now with an acai bowl the presentation is almost as important as the taste

13

we topped ours with strawbs, bananas, muesli and raisins

14

YUMMY SCRUMMY

14a

we we we so excited 

15

the perfect afternoon treat 
that you can eat rather than watch the footie
that won't interrupt with getting yo 
BIKINI BODY

Stax Diner

it must be pretty clear by now 
that we both love American food
so when a new diner opened up in Carnaby 
we knew we just HAD to get there 
ASAP
and Stax certainly did not disappoint 

1a

we noticed one thing right away

1

they enjoy the colour red

2

what a co-inkydink that strawbs are also red

2a

were we destined to feast here by the great strawberry Gods?!

3

prolly not
but boy were we ready for some classics from the US of A

4

it all just sounded sooooooooooooooo darn-tooting good

5

as we pondered both our food and drink orders 

6

we may have got a bit snap happy at the quirky interior design

7

everything was just too beaut
we couldn't resist!

11

these are the faces of excitement, anticipation... 

9

and HUNGER!

000000

drinkypoo time

14

em went for a diet coke

15

while beth went wild with a cookies and cream milkshake

17

which was the bomb dot com

12a

and a perf starter to the ultra delish burgers 

000

which we just could not wait to absolutely devour 

13

can we just talk about the fries for a sec?
they were the most crispiest dish of deliciousness 

16

as was the fried chicken burger - which was literally exploding out of the bun

18

and the bacon cheese burger had the exact right 
juice to crunch ratio

19

the perfect lunch spot if you're going to be around soho
or even if you're not
and we rate stax so highly
we're awarding it with the strawberry seal of approval
congrats guys
