Acai Smoothie

I’m in Los Angeles where the weather is currently 80 degrees – not exactly winter weather! ¬†Warm weather always makes me crave smoothies. I am also a mom to an 18 month old who refuses to eat fruit but will happily drink a smoothie- so if I can give my baby something nutritious and fulfill my own craving then it’s a win win situation!

This smoothie is super healthy and tastes great. (Acai, a berry found in the Amazon, is high in antioxidants and low in sugar.)

Ingredients:

10 ice cubes

1 Sambazon Acai Smoothie Packet **

1/2 banana

I Fiji apple – juiced

5 large strawberries

1/4 cup blueberries

1 scoop whey protein powder (optional)

Directions:

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend well. If you don’t have a juicer to juice an apple you can substitute with a 1/4 cup of organic apple juice or even water.

 

*you can buy Sambazon smoothie packets online at www.sambazon.com or at your local Wholefoods in the freezer section.
