Next, mix all of the Cream Pie ingredients together in a blender or food processor.
Take the Cream Pie mixture, and fill a large, lightly greased muffin tin, using enough mix to fill each individual muffin tin 1/4-1/2 of the way full. (Quick Tip: It’s easier to make the “pies” with a muffin tin, but you can also use a cookie sheet.)
Bake in the oven for 13 minutes; while the Cream Pies are baking, mix together your Frosting ingredients by hand in a small bowl.
When Cream Pies are done, remove them from your muffin tin or cookie sheet; next, add “cream” to one side of Cream Pie, and make sandwich with the other; Serve immediately, or refrigerate for a later date.
Eat & enjoy!

Quick Fact: Anthocyanins and flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against life’s stressors, and the açaí berry is full of them! They also play a role in the body’s cell protection system. Free radicals are harmful byproducts produced by our bodies; eating a diet rich in antioxidants lessens the destructive power of free radicals, and may help reduce the risk of some diseases, such as heart disease and cancer!

Take a medium-sized glass bowl, and stick it in the freezer to remain cold during the preparation process.

Next, mix your 2% milk, 1/2 Cup of banana, frozen berries, acai powder, maca, and cacao powder in a high speed blender until smooth. (Tip: The puree will be thick; don’t mix too much, because this will sometimes cause it to liquify! – Amber)
Now remove your glass bowl from the freezer, and spread 1/4 Cup of granola evenly into the bottom of the bowl.
Then pour your thick, frozen smoothie puree onto the granola evenly. (Tip: If your puree has started to liquify, put into the freezer for a few minutes until it gets a bit hardened. – Amber)
