Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) berries are a superfood that is native to South American rain forests. They contain loads of antioxidants, are good for your skin, may have anti-cancer properties, and support brain and heart health.
Blending acai puree into a smoothie bowl is a great way to consume these beneficial nutrients! Here is my favorite recipe:
1 package frozen unsweetened acai puree
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1-2 scoops vanilla protein powder
Blend the above ingredients together until smooth. Adjust thickness by adding or reducing the amount of ice. Freezing your banana will help too! Top with the other ½ banana (chopped), berries and your favorite granola.
Sometimes I will add 1/3 cup frozen beets and the color of the puree becomes a bright pink-purple! Beets are also good for your heart and brain, help protect against cancer, reduce inflammation in the body and boost your immunity.
Now that is a lot of bang for your buck! ENJOY! XO
Food is fuel.
I love to cook and bake recipes that incorporate healthy whole foods and those nutritious macro and micronutrients into our daily diets. I also like to make treats though, because let's face it, everyone loves a good sweet now and then! My favorite part about cooking, though, is sharing my latest recipes with others. ENJOY! XO
