Yummy Yum….Just finishing up a bowl of one of the most exquisite treats offered to us by nature. Acai, pronounced (A sy eee) is one of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet. You can do so much with these delicious berries hailing from the Rainforest of the mighty country of Brazil. This food is full of omega fats as well, a much needed, and often overlooked part of the human diet. Thanks to companies like Sambazon, we here in North America can access the pulp of this beautiful fruit with guarana and other natural flavorings. Taking this stuff makes you feel like you can climb a mountain, run 3 miles and go to the gym to lift, and then some…. It’s just amazing for stamina and mental clarity.
When I lived in Northeast Brazil we used to eat Acai for breakfast everyday to get it started right. One recipe that makes for a delicious treat and healthy start is:
2 packs of Sambazon Acai or fresh berries that you process ( available here in Hawaii I know)
A large papaya
Some juice base like coconut water, guava or any you prefer
Some berries (any you like)
Blend the ingredients together. It should be a little thicker than a smoothie and is actually eaten with a spoon. Then sprinkle some delicious hemp granola and banana slices on top and ENJOY!
