Delicious Acai Recipes That Aren't in Bowls
If you've yet to devour an acai bowl, then that gym locker you reserved in January is probably collecting dust. The health food industry hasn’t shut up about the fiberous and antioxidant-boosting properties of these powerful Brazilian berries, which has made them a staple in many fitness gurus' diets. While we certainly love the endless possibilities of a bowl, there is more to acai than meets the spoon (and it usually comes in the form of dessert!). Check out these alternative recipes incorporating the super fruit in creative and delicious ways.
Acai and Blueberry Cheesecake
Acai and blueberry are essentially BFFs and this dessert highlights them in a way that was too pretty not to include. Plus, the cake is raw and vegan, so that at least removes part of the guilt when you eat most of it in one sitting. Click here for the recipe.
A little booze never hurt anyone. Acai's powerful antioxidants team up with blueberry vodka's powerful liquor content to create the Happy Hour drink of your dreams. Click here for the recipe.
