Berry Energy Bowl

At three different cafe's around town now, I've seen acai energy bowls on offer. I had one at Mint, and liked it a lot, but felt like a sucker paying $7 for something so simple.

This simple version, even paying through the nose for the berries at my corner store, is half the price and just as good. OB says it's like cold, fruity yogurt and is a big fan.
To make one serving, blend a cup of non-dairy milk (I use unsweetened soy) with about a cup of frozen berries (i.e. blueberries and cherries, blackberries and strawberries, etc.) until smooth. Add more berries if you want it thicker, or put it in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up. Top with 1/4 cup of granola and banana slices. Ta da!

If you use blueberries, it'll turn your tongue blue.
