Acai Smoothie Bowl - by Safiya Motala
We keep seeing mouth-watering images of smoothie bowls out there, using our organic freeze-dried acai berry powder!
Acai berries are extremely rich in antioxidants, amino acids, fatty acids and dietary fiber. Shanti Tea uses freeze-dried organic acai berry powder, the freeze drying process retains most of the fruits nutrients. Plus, having a powder means it can be easily added to smoothies, baked goods, juices and more.
Besides being rich in antioxidants, here are some of the highlights of this superfood!
- Promotes hearth health - The antioxidants and plant sterols in acai berries help improve circulation
- Promotes skin health - Foods rich in antixoidants promote good good skin health.
- Aids in digestion - Since acai berries are high in fiber, they help to aid the digestive process. 1 tsp of freeze-dried powder contains about 4% of your recommended daily fiber intake
