A delicious açai and berry smoothie, made with simple ingredients! Read the notes to get ideas on how to make this superfood smoothie perfect for your needs.
Servings: 2 smoothies
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1 cup blueberries frozen (sub strawberries or raspberries)
- 1 cup mango frozen (sub 1 frozen banana)
- 1 acai puree packet
- 1 scoop whey protein isolate optional, sub favorite protein powder *see notes
Add all the ingredients to a blender, and process until smooth and creamy. Add additional milk, if necessary, to reach desired texture.
Mix up the Fruit: I recommend having 1 sweet fruit in here, so if mango isn't your thing, try banana. Blueberries are awesome in here, but I've also made this with frozen raspberries and frozen strawberries.
Add Protein: I use BioChem Whey protein isolate. It's from grass-fed dairy, tastes great, and doesn't have any other ingredients. It gives smoothies an extra creamy and light texture, so I love adding it to smoothies.
Substitute your favorite protein powder, or try one of these options:
Add Veggies: Try this healthy açai smoothie with 1/2 cup of riced cauliflower, or a couple handfuls of fresh spinach or kale to make this a green smoothie.
You can try this as an Açai Smoothie Bowl, but I prefer to make smoothie bowls extra thick using this method!
Add an Açai Berry Boost without the puree: If you can't find the Acai Puree from packages where you live, try Açai powder. Add 1-2 tablespoons into your smoothie to benefit from all the antioxidants!
- 1-2 tablespoons chia, hemp or flax seeds
- 1/3 cup Greek yogurt (reduce amount of almond milk)
- Soy or hemp milk to replace the almond milk
