Brazilian surfers first popularized this freakishly nutritious Amazonian berry. Now it has gone mainstream. The smoothie here, by F&W's Grace Parisi, boosts acai's healthfulness with pomegranate juice.
In a blender, combine one 3.5-ounce package frozen unsweetened açai puree with 2 bananas, 1 cup frozen raspberries, 1 cup pomegranate juice and 1 tablespoon agave nectar and blend at high speed until smooth. Serve right away.
Acai puree is available at well-stocked health-food stores and online at sambazon.com.
