Most triathletes won't leave the Big Island without an acai bowl (or three) from Basik. This cafe is easily one of the top power fueling stations for hungry competitors and their creative combinations have inspired many of our own Athlete Food recipes.
We plan on snacking on a Basik-inspired Kona Bowl during the opening leg of Saturday's race. It includes Nutrex Hawaiian Spirulina (harvested not far from the race site) and is topped with fresh pineapple.

1 package frozen acai

1/4 - 1/2 cup almond milk (amount depends on how much your blender needs to get going)
