Acai Spring Sorbet
By Sophie Leaver
Health & Wellbeing writer
This light, vibrant, delicious sorbet is the perfect treat now that Spring has come around! It is healthy, nutritious and energising, and perfect for afternoons in the sun, dinner party deserts or even for a fruity breakfast. You can adjust the flavours to suit your taste, and add any fruits, super food powders, or toppings you might like! Acai is nutritiously abundant, rich in antioxidants, omegas, amino acids, and plenty of fibre. The freeze-dried powder perfectly preserves this amazing nutritional profile for whenever you’re ready to use it! The colour and taste of this sorbet are so vibrant and inviting that it’s bound to make you smile.
2 frozen bananas, cut into small pieces (It’s easiest to peel and slice the bananas, place them in a container, and freeze)
1 handful of blackberries (blueberries, raspberries or strawberries would also work)
2 tablespoons of natural greek yoghurt (I used Fage, but any other type would work)
1/4 cup of almond milk
2 tablespoons of Acai powder
1 Bunch of fresh mint
Place the bananas, berries, yoghurt and powder into your blender and begin to mix.
As the ingredients start to blend, slowly pour the almond milk in until it forms a smooth, creamy consistency.
You can adjust the flavours as much as you wish here- adding in more lemon will bring out the tanginess of the berries, or adding more acai powder will give a richer, slightly more chocolaty taste.
