Superfood Spotlight....Acai Berry!

What is it?

Up until a decade ago, Acai berries were practically unheard of by anyone outside of South America. They are a fruit harvested from Acai palm trees, which are native to the rainforests of South America. It is a reddish, purple fruit that is small and round like a grape and is a relative of the blueberry and the cranberry. The Acai berry itself is 90% seed, covered in a small amount of pulp. The pulp is the only thing that is actually eaten, not the seed. The taste of the Acai berry is often reminiscent of wild berries combined with chocolate!
