Acai Superfood

Have you ever seen Acai before? It’s most commonly sold as an Acai Bowl in natural food restaurants and smoothie bars. Acai is a berry that comes from South American palm trees that grow in the rainforests. 

Acai berries are renowned for their high levels of antioxidants, and they have been studied for their ability to reduce cholesterol levels and to help fight cancer

In addition to the potential health benefits of eating acai, the berries taste great too! You can buy acai in the frozen section of most quality grocery stores. Look for unsweetened versions sold in small packets. 

Recipe Steps

This Acai Coconut Smoothie is so easy to make. You only need five ingredients. 

Step One

Combine the almond milk, dried coconut, banana, strawberries, and acai into the pitcher of a high-speed blender. 

By the way, you don’t need to defrost frozen acai before using. Just hold the packet under some warm running water, and then use scissors or a paring knife to slice open the package.

Step Two

Blend for about 30 seconds, or until smooth. The texture of this smoothie is smooth, with just a little bit of the dried coconut. You don’t need any added sugars since the berries and the banana add great natural sweetness.
