Yup, I love acai berry recipes (ah-SIGH-ee)

FUN FACT: Did you know that acai was officially added to Webster's Dictionary in 2009! I did a post on that.

My "finalist" acai bowl features cool and creamy acai puree, made using Sambazon freezer packs, frozen blueberries and bananas. Then on top I added fresh and juicy orange slices, banana, crushed Brazil nuts and a swirl of homemade Brazil nut butter! This bowl tasted amazing and I call it my "Nuts for Brazil" bowl.
