Easy Açaí

Ahhh… açaí (pronounced ‘ah.sigh.ee’).

 A small purple berry picked from a palm tree and packed with nutrition!

These babies are filled with:

  • Antioxidants – more than blueberries!
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Fiber
  • and more!

Don’t worry if you don’t live in Brazil where the berry grows- the frozen packs will give you all the nutrition.

If you haven’t shopped for acai before, check the frozen isle of your grocery store. The most common brand sold is Sambazon which can also be ordered online! Alternatively, I hear Trader Joe’s sells their own brand in stores that I have yet to try.

If you like it smoother blend with more milk.

If you like it sweeter blend with a teaspoon of agave.

If you like it nutty add a tablespoon of peanut or almond butter.

If you like it fruity, cut up all the fruit in your kitchen and add it on top!

Chocolate Chia Pudding

Have you ever wanted a chocolate treat or dessert that was healthy and relatively quick? This Chocolate Chia Pudding might do the trick! It can be done with just 5 minutes of prep and 30 minutes in the fridge. By the way, we consider this is a tropical recipe because chocolate comes from cocoa beans, which grows on trees in Central America and South America and can only live in hot, rainy places near the Equator. Enjoy!
