Acai Smoothie Bowl

By Stephanie Wharton


Açaî berries are considered a Brazilian superfood. Grown in the Amazon, these berries are nutrient dense and contain a high amount of antioxidants. Outside of their locally grown region, açaî is available mostly in powder form, frozen pureés and in juices.

When buying açaî powder for this recipe, check the ingredient list to make sure açaî is the only ingredient listed on the label. Some powders may contain unnecessary ingredients or extra sugar.
