ACAI RASPBERRY SMOOTHIE RECIPE

This Acai Raspberry smoothie recipe is layered with fruity goodness and it’s a perfect introduction to acai!

It’s perfect as a snack or an enticing breakfast smoothie!

I also recommend trying this as a post-workout smoothie as well.

The coconut water blended with the bananas makes this a perfect cool down treat!

Best of all, it’s like having 2 smoothies in 1!

Free Juice Detox

Blend it in a high powered blender to really pulverize those raspberry seeds and use frozen bananas for a thick and creamy smoothie.

Enjoy the strong, distinct flavors of the bananas and berries in each layer.

This layered smoothie recipe gives you a double taste sensation that you won’t regret!

And let’s not forget the big boost of antioxidants and vitamins you get from the acai and raspberries.

When USDA organic/free trade acai is nowhere to be found, don’t fret!

Grab some blueberries or tart cherries! They have the same, if not more antioxidants than acai and are just as delicious!

BLENDER BABE RECIPE NOTES 

“The 2 distinct layers makes this smoothie unique that’s why I recommend quickly rinsing out your Blendtec or Vitamix blender jar in between layers. If you want the consistency of your layers to be thicker, try adding a couple cubes of ice or adding in some Maca powder or any powder of your choice!”

ACAI HEALTH BENEFITS AND FUN FACTS

Everyone is aware of the acai craze and for a good reason– acai is really good for you. The super-fruit is high in antioxidants and omegas-3, 6 and 9. It can aide in weight loss, speed up your metabolism, and keep your brain sharp!

Grown on Acai Palms, these dark colored berries are grown mostly in Northern South America and are one of the most economically important products for the river delta of the Amazon. Because of their growing popularity and limited grove space, acai is often times expensive or hard to find.

    Sounds wonderful but I don’t like the taste of coconut. Does coconut water actually taste like coconut? Is there a substitute?

      Hi, Sue!

      Coconut water definitely has a coconut taste. You can substitute with regular water if you like. Try it out and let me know what you think!

      Happy Blending!

  2. Everything that is good for you is in this Acai Raspberry Freeze recipe even the coconut water. What a wonderful afternoon pick-me-up – DIVINE ♥
