Acai Please!

September 2, 2016

 

When you hear the word Acai, you might wonder, “What is that? And how do you even pronounce it?” Well, simply put Acai, pronounced ah-sah-EE, is a purple edible berry from a Central and South American palm tree.  The acai berry is rich in antioxidants and acts as an anti-inflammatory, not to mention it’s delicious, so it’s no surprise that Acai Bowls have become such a popular menu item.  The favored breakfast trend is basically an acai smoothie topped with yummy goodness such as berries, fruit, granola, coconut, and more.  Unfortunately, the price of Acai Bowls has risen with its popularity, but not to fear, Lean Green Nutrition Fiend is here! Healthy food blogger, Cheryl Lang, has the perfect recipe for a delicious Berry Acai Bowl that you can make and enjoy in the comfort of your home…jammies are optional.  Enjoy!
