We love this purple Brazilian Berry! Anyway we can add it into our week, we do, whether that be in smoothies, in a dressing or the good old traditional Acai bowl. The acai berry is packed full of nutrients and is an amazing boost of energy post surf, workout, or just a great treat any day of the week. We love the recipe here from My Wholefood Romance.
Makes 2 bowls
1 cup frozen berries (any kind)
1 cup almond milk
2 tbs acai powder
2 tbs hemp or chia seeds
1/2 tbs nut butter
1 tsp raw cacao (or more)
1 tsp maca powder (or more)
A handful of kale leaves – no stems (or any other leafy green)
1-2 tsp lemon juice
Pop all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Add less milk for a thicker consistency, more for thinner. Note: a thicker consistency = bacically ice-cream – awesome.
Top with any left over fruit, nuts, granola, flaked coconut, extra avocado, or just enjoy straight up!
