Acai is one of those "superfoods" that we always hear about. I am all about eating foods that can provide added health benefits but I am not much for falling for foods because they have this superfood label. Realistically all fruits and vegetables should be considered a super food! But regardless I wanted to try out acai and see what it was all about.
Now since we live in Canada I had to opt for the powered version of acai. Acai berries are known to be high in antioxidants and fiber meaning they have been linked to disease prevention and better digestive function.
How did I find the taste? Well to be honest, with everything else I had blended with it, it didn't taste any different then a regular berry smoothie. However, because of the mixture I used, I was able to sneak in some spinach to make it more filling.
1 tbsp acai powder
1/2 cup frozen raspberries (plus some to top)
1/2 frozen banana
1 cup spinach
1 cup coconut milk
coconut flakes for topping
1. Add all the ingredients to a blender, blend and serve. Feel free to add coconut flakes and more berries.
