Quick and Easy Acai Recipe:
Acai Sorbet

This quick and easy acai recipe likely includes two ingredients that are new to your vocabulary:

  • acai
  • agave nectar
Acai...pronounced (ah-sigh-ee)...is a fruit from the Amazon rainforest. It has a rich, berry-cocoa flavor. In its pure state, açai pulp is sour and slightly bitter...YUCK...

...but once a little sweetener is added, the flavor resembles concentrated blueberries with a hint of chocolate...YUM!!

Acai can be purchased in the frozen food section of natural foods stores such as Whole Food Market. (If you can't find acai, or don't WANT to use it, you can substitute frozen blueberries in this recipe!)

Agave nectar is a sweetener with a texture similar to honey, but with a lower glycemic index.
