I recently got to try Acai for the first time. It’s been on my “list” of things I’ve been wanting to try – mainly because of its superfood status (it contains tons of antioxidants as well as healthy fatty acids, and omega 6 and 9 FAs) and because of my love of berries and fruits.
Amazon Planet let me sample some of their freeze dried packs of acai powder. They also offer frozen acai which would make a great addition to smoothies or ice cream, don’t you think?
They offer 3 different varieties of powders:
- PowerPowder (100% pure, organic acai powder)
- EnergyPowder (Organic açai powder with organic Ginkgo Biloba and Green Tea extracts)
- ImmunePowder (Organic açai powder with organic Echinacea and Astragalus extracts)
I really enjoyed all three flavors of the powders. They reminded me of a combination of blueberries and blackberries. I decided to add these to a blueberry banana smoothie, with wonderful results, as well as to some plain goats milk yogurt. It really does mix up nicely and lend a nice flavor to the yogurt. There was no grittiness in either the smoothie or the yogurt.
Have you tried acai powder or juice? What did you think? If not, would you want to sometime?
Thanks again Amazon Planet!
