Use
Acai berry makes a very nutritious ingredient for a drink or smoothie, combines well with green superfood powders, and can even be consumed straight. Acai berry has a deep rich taste that is somewhat reminiscent of wine without the bite of the alcohol.

General information
Acai berry makes a great health tonic for those looking to minimize sugar consumption while still gaining the benefits from eating high quality fruits. Acai has only recently made the rounds and become popularized throughout the modern world. It has a low sugar and high anti-oxidant ratio, making it more like the fruit of the old word than the new, granting us a glimpse into the flavors and diet of our ancestors.
