Acai actually possesses far more benefits including boosting our immune systems and digestive functions. Acai is a nutritional, energizing fruit that gives you more antioxidant and amino acid bang-for-the-buck than nearly every other food on Earth. Forget about the scam advertisements, weight-loss pills etc. It’s a Superfood with remarkable powers: supporting your immune system, digestive functions, eye health and — many suggest — mental clarity.
You’ll notice that I didn’t mention weight loss or quick fix pills being pumped by everyone from Oprah to email spammers. I recently came back from Brazil where I tasted fresh berries. WOW! Acai is street food in Rio de Janiero has been used for FAR longer than down there versus the U.S. It’s valued for NOT for weight management — more for it’s nutritional properties.
Did I mention how addicted I became to its taste in the form of an ice-cream like smoothie? Here's a rocking recipe that is packed, also, with fiber -- oh and CHOCOLATE:
3 Tbs. Acai (pure juice or you can also buy it in powder form)
2 Tbs. raw cacao powder
the meat of one young coconut
1 cup organic baby spinach
1 cup water
Blend and prepare to want more! If you want to sweeten naturally just toss in some honey or something like that. Please -- no high fructose corn syrup! LOL!
