Açai is considered to be one of nature’s most complete and healthy foods. It was the berry used as a medicinal plant by native Amazonian tribes. The tribes of the Amazon knew the benefits Acai berry gave, and found out that it helped build the immune system, fight infection and protect the heart.

This antioxidant-rich fruit has been rediscovered by Western where it is commonly used for consumption. Below you’ll have some tips on how to make a delicious açai bowl:

1. Use Frozen Fruit

In addition to the packs of Açai that can often be bought in super markets we recommend mixing it with frozen fruits such as bananas or strawberry. The main reason for this is the noticeable change in texture. The consistency of the açai pulp becomes heavier and smoother. Not the forget, more nutrients!

2. Ice Cubes

Many often forget to add ice cubes to the blend. However, ice cubes are key to make the açai purree creamier and thicker.

3. For The Extra-Healthy

Add greens to your smoothie bowls such as spinach or kale. It’s a great way to add a lot of nutrition without really changing the taste or texture.

4. Toppings

Lastly, its important to make wise choices when considering the topics.  When using a sweet base for the açai make sure you choose acrid toppings and crunchy nuts and granola.  For a acid base use bananas as topic and sprinkle some pumpkin seeds on top.
