Something Tasty (Acai Bowls)

Acai, (pronounced ah-sigh-ee), is the high-energy berry of a special Amazon palm tree. This little berry, about the size of a blueberry, is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world!  Amazingly, this berry is being called by many the miracle berry.

Harvested in the rainforests of Brazil, Acai berry tastes like a vibrant blend of berries and chocolate. Hidden within its royal purple pigment is the magic that makes it nature’s perfect energy fruit.

Acaí is packed full of:

antioxidants

amino acids

essential fatty acids

vitamins and minerals

  The Açai Berry has the highest antioxidant score of any fruit or vegetable tested to date.

Unlike other fruits, the Açai Berry contains protein, fiber, Omega 6, and Omega 9 essential fatty acids. It is incredibly alkaline, assist the body with detox and maintaining optimum health in balancing ph levels.  This is the most important aspects of living healthy.

Acai has twice the antioxidants of blueberries, 30x that of red wine! Acai is 100x more potent than Goji, Noni or Mangosteen.

I recently was at Whole foods and found the berry in the frozen section.  You can buy it in individual packages then go home and make your own berry bowl.  If you live in Santa Barbara, you’re familiar with Backyard Bowls.

Heres what I did:

1 packet of Acai

1/2 bag of organic mixed berries from Trader Joes

1 banana

1/2 a cup of water

2 ice cubes

Blend well.  If you have a BlendTec or Vitamix, that will work the best.  The consistency is very thick, which is exactly how you want it.  When done blending and have poured into the bowl, add granola.  You may also add strawberries, bananas, or any other fruit in the mix and on top.  Play around.

Happy Healthiness!
