Ingredients

  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup acai juice, Sambazon brand preferred
  • 2 bananas, peeled
  • 7 ounces frozen unsweetened acai puree, Sambazon brand preferred
  • 3/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries or raspberries
  • 1/2 cup granola (optional)
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs (optional)

You’ll also need a high-speed blender like a VitaMix or a Nutribullet Rx.

 

Directions

Place the acai juice and one of the bananas in the blender, then add the frozen acai puree, blueberries and strawberries on top so the blades suck in the frozen items. Pulse as needed to form a smooth sorbet, scaling down the sides of the pitcher with a spatula as necessary.

Slice the remaining banana. Divide the mixture between two bowls and top each with the garnishes. Serve immediately.

 

“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life—and travel—leaves marks on you.”
