Healthy Acai Berry Smoothie Recipe

Several times a week we make homemade fruit smoothies. We got on our smoothie kick about 2 years ago for health reasons and ever since then...we've been making them. I think it's really important that you experiment with different fruit combinations and keep changing them up, so that you don't get bored with the same old flavors and lose interest. When we make them, we use a combination of fresh fruits mixed with frozen fruits, depending on the time of year.

A friend of mine is a big fan of acai berry smoothies and introduced us to the Sambazon Original Blend Acai Berry Superfruit Packs. Each of these larger packs comes with 4 single serve puree packs which makes smoothie-making really easy. You store them in the freezer until you're ready to use them. To thaw: Just run the frozen puree pack under hot water for 15 seconds or so, open it up and pour into your blender container.
Acai Berry Smoothie Recipe

1 Acai Berry Original Blend Superfruit Pack
1/2 Fresh Banana
1 cup Coconut Water
* optional - Dash of Honey

Combine the Acai Berry Original Blend Superfruit Pack, fresh banana, coconut water and honey in a blender and blend until smooth.

Note: Sometimes I like a "thicker and richer" smoothie, so I'll toss a 1/4 cup of organic vanilla bean ice cream into the blender too. I guess that makes it more like a milkshake...but trust me, it's good! My husband likes to toss in chia seeds or flax seeds in his smoothie and my mother likes added a 1/4 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt to hers. Enjoy!

I can see how easily these smoothies can be made. I would love the milkshake, bor the yogurt ones the most. I also might add more berries to mine on occasion or to make it healthier some vegetables.
