acai smoothie



  1. Run the acai frozen smoothie pack under water for a few seconds and break it up into chunks with your hands while still in the plastic. Remove the plastic and place pieces into a high-powered blender and combine with frozen berries and apple juice until very smooth. Because this is a thick frozen smoothie you'll need to stop and start your blender to push the frozen pieces closer to the bottom to get it well combined. If you have a vitamix use the the baton that comes with it and gently push the fruit closer to the blade while running the blender... carefully!

  2. Empty the mixture into your bowls and top with sliced banana, flaked coconut, homemade hemp granola or a pre-made granola or your choice, and a drizzle of agave. 

Recipe Notes

For an added indulgence, add some coconut whip as well!

    Where do you find the acai smoothie packs?

    • Lauren Toyota 4 years ago

      Hey Odessa
      Don’t know where you live, but we’re in Toronto and have found them at Whole Foods, Loblaws, Fiesta Farms, and Essence of Life in Kensington Market. Most health food stores will have this in the freezer section and even some major grocers might carry them or be able to order them if you request.
