Mock Acai na Tigela (Mock Frozen Acai Berries Smoothie)
3 cups frozen blueberries
1 banana, not frozen, sliced
2 tablespoons agave nectar
4 teaspoons cocoa powder (should fine powder, not chunky)
1/2 to 3/4 cup water
1. In a blender, place blueberries, banana, agave nectar, and cocoa powder. Add just enough water to get the blender to blend everything into a smooth slurry.
2. Pour into a bowl or a small cup and eat with a spoon.
Since so much energy is required to transport acai berries all the way from Brazil, I came up with this alternative using blueberries and a bit of cocoa to mimic the flavour of acai berries. The overall flavour is really similar.
