Try these antioxidant-rich acai bowl recipes to make a delicious and refreshing breakfast. Blend and top with fresh fruit, nut butters and more.
Acai berries (pronounced ah-sai-ee) are the fruits of acai palm trees, which are mostly grown in Brazil’s Amazon rain forest. These small, dark-purple berries pack a nutrient punch with a whole host of antioxidants, amino acids and essential fatty acids. Dubbed by the Brazilians as the “Beauty Berry,” acai berries truly do the body good from the inside out, with health benefits such as increased energy levels, a boosted immune system, improved metabolic function and better hair and skin. Not only is this superfood incredibly good for you, but it’s also delicious (it kind of tastes like dark chocolate!). One of the most popular ways to eat these berries is in an acai bowl, where puréed acai berries are garnished with a variety of toppings, such as sliced bananas, strawberries and granola.
