Super Açaí Smoothies


I have heard so much good things about Açaí berry supplement, especially as a source of antioxidants and energy boosters, but I never thought much about it. So, recently I was invited by Ben and Suanne of Chowtimes to check out a new and fancy frozen yoghurt place called Qoola at Denman St, Vancouver. (They were invited for a soft opening at Qoola) The frozen yoghurt was good until the name "Açaí" was mentioned and Qoola açaí bowl was fantastic!

Okay, when I saw packets of frozen Açaí at Wholefoods, immediately I knew I have to try them. Today, I'm posting smoothies with blueberry recipe. I had one glass of it for lunch and they really fill me up! Btw, I'll be posting my Açaí Bowl recipe during the weekend.

  1. Thanks for signing up to follow me! I am very excited! I've never seen Acai for sale but I've sure seen advertisements for them. So, are those blueberries floating on the top or are they acai? I've never seen acai before so I don't know since your recipe uses both. I'm glad it lived up to the hybe!
