Since returning from Brazil I’ve become obsessed with acai bowls (pronounced ‘ahsyee’). The acai is a berry grown in South America aka as a superfood and full of antioxidants!
In Brazil I’d buy a bowl of acai for £2 but in London most places charge approximately £7 so I decided to learn how to make my own…
Some benefits of acai are as follows;
- aids weight loss
- helps digestion
- has anti-aging effects
- improves mental function
- promotes heart health
They’re real easy to make and perfect as part of a Sunday brunch or even dessert.
