One of our favourite super foods is the acai berry, pronounced ah-sigh-ee it is an inch-long, reddish-purple fruit and originates from the acai palm tree, which is native to Central and South America. The acai berry has been heralded for centuries for its healing, immune-stimulating, energy-boosting properties. It has high levels of omega 6 and 9 oil and is high in fibre and low in sugar. It’s level of antioxidants surpasses even that of the blueberry. Some studies show that the acai fruit pulp is the highest botanical source of Iron - even more than spinach!
Most will be familiar with the powder version, but here at Flavour Garden we offer the pulp of this amazing fruit! Available frozen, this has been trending worldwide as a breakfast staple. We use it in our tasty smoothies and also our green and granola acai bowls (also known as ‘smoothie bowls’) - topped with fruits, granola or nut butter. Having one of these delicious bowls is a great way to kick start your day and here at Flavour Garden they are also available to eat on the go.
