Who knew a supererfood could look this luscious. At my local Whole Foods, Sambazon was promoting their organic Acai Berry smoothie packs, and OMG! I was blown away. The demonstrator made a simple blend of their Original Rio Blend Acai Berry + Guarana puree blended with banana and strawberries.
The consistency of the blend was just like frozen yogurt, and that's wonderful for people like me who are dairy allergic. This Acai Berry FroYo recipe is vegan, soy-free,and gluten-free, and uses only sweeteners from the Acai Smoothie pack and the other fruit.
Washing your food processor will take more time than to make this FroYo. This dessert is so incredibly simple and fast to make. Best yet, since the smoothie packs come in single servings, you have built-in portion control.
One serving of this FroYo recipe (Acai Berry, banana + strawberries minus toppings) is about 170 calories, so besides dessert, this FroYo could be a nice snack.
For topping, I added kiwi, cranberries, and walnuts. Visually, I love how the green of the kiwi pops against the beautiful purple of the Acai Berry.
Ingredients (one serving):
- 1 packet Sambazon Acai Smoothie Pack
- 1/2 banana
- 2 frozen strawberries
Put all three ingredients in a small blender or 3-cup food processor and blend until smooth. All done! If you want the FroYo to be a bit more solid, put your mix in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.
Put FroYo in bowl, add toppings, and nosh away.
