Celebrate Freedom With Acai Patriot Bowl

Are you interested in breaking out of that typical smoothie for breakfast habit most people enjoy during the hot summer months?  In today’s post I have a fun new product from the Amazon that you can easily find in the United States that is totally organic and full of anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins that benefit overall health and fitness. The photography featuring this recipe looked super amazing I actually drove into town late last night to get a few of the ingredients I didn’t have on hand needed for this treat. The bowl we created was a great substitute for the ice cream we have in the freezer and MUCH better for you.  Below you will find a video showing how easy it is to create this Acai Bowl that we’ve jazzed up for summer entertaining with a patriotic theme.

What is Acai

Acai berry has amazing levels of anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins that have health benefiting and disease preventing properties. People of the Amazon in South America have been using the  Acai berry as a treatment remedy for diarrhea, parasitic infections, hemorrhages, and ulcer treatment for ages.  This berry is highly perishable and must be eaten or transported to a processing unit immediately.  I think it is super awesome that Sambazon is making it possible for people in North America (like myself) be able to enjoy this fruit.

Have you tried a berry that you can’t grow in your country? I think it is very cool that we are able to get to try products like this thanks to companies like Sambazon and the Acai berry. I’d love to hear from you … tell me about your favorite berry or if you’ve tried this fruit before.   I hope you are able to try this patriotic dish (or bowl) over the 4th of July weekend!
