Acai berries are the amazing fruits of acai palm trees, predominantly found in Brazil’s Amazon rain forest. These small berries are packed full of nutrients and contain a whole host of antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids to help your skin glow! Acai berries are known as the “Beauty Berry” and do your body a world of good including increased energy levels, boosted immune system, improved metabolic function and better skin! One of the most popular ways to eat acai berries is in a acai bowl, topped with yummy sliced fruits – check out one of my favourite recipes below.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 100g frozen acas berry pulp or 4 tbsp acai powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

Toppings:

  • 1/2 small banana
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cupΒ raspberries
  • 1/4 cup strawberries
  • 1/4 cup gluten free granola
  • Drizzle of raw honey, optional

Directions:

1. Add all main ingredients to blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add extra almond milk as required if you need to perfect the consistency. Aim for a frozen-yoghurt consistency, slightly thicker than a smoothie.

2. Spoon the mixture into bowls and top with your preferred toppings and a drizzle of honey.
