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.
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenCan it actually cause insomnia and night sweats in menopausal women if taken at night? I think it does for me. I also use compounded bio-identical hormones.
