Acai Berry Smoothie





Açaí Berry Smoothie

Serves 5

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 3.5 oz packet of unsweetened açaí berry puree (from Trader Joe’s frozen aisle)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 1/2 cups OJ (Trader Joe’s Florida OJ is best!)
  • 1/2 cup water

This one is super simple – just place all the ingredients in the blender and pulse until desired consistency. The great thing about smoothies is you can play around with the recipe – if you adore pineapple, you can just add another handful without worrying you’ll mess up some delicate balance. Let me know if you enjoy this super healthy snack, and what your favorite fruit ratios are!
