Thick, Creamy Acai Smoothie
It’s always a treat when I get to enjoy a smoothie featuring tropical acai berry with its notes of wild berry and a hint of chocolate!
Acai berry is rich in antioxidants, fiber, and healthy fats and has long been thought of as a ‘superfood’ – right up there with blueberries and strawberries.
What does it taste like? Acai berry’s flavor profile includes a rich and earthy combination of blackberries and dark chocolate. Sounds delicious, right! It’s a flavor that pairs perfectly with most fruits.
So when you’re looking for a quick and easy smoothie that’s loaded with healthy berries – this Acai Smoothie with whole food plant-based ingredients is all you need
