ACAI BRANDS I LOVE
- Organic Acai powder from Healthy Truth tastes like red cocoa. It's quite wild in the taste department because it doesn't taste like the usual ACAI that you may be used to, it's more earthy in taste making this special, especially with chocolate. It's raw, and not freeze-dried. The texture is soft and smooth.
- The Acai powder made at Nuts dot com tastes like true berries and is freeze-dried. The texture is more coarse.
WHAT'S IN THIS SMOOTHIE? YOU SAID IT'S LOADED!
- Frozen zucchini
- Cacao or cocoa powder
- Acai powder
- Chia seeds
- Ground flax
- Coconut milk
- Complimented with a Square Protein Bar by SquareBar which can be found online
ACAI SUPERFOOD TIP
Acai powder mixed with carob or chocolate tastes like a drink for the gods. It's incredibly cocoa with a fruity hint.
IS ACAI POWDER GLUTEN-FREE?
- Healthy Truth Acai Superfood Powder is certified gluten-free and tested at 5ppm. It's organic, raw, and vegan.
- Nuts dot com Acai Superfood Powder is also certified gluten-free, organic, vegan, and tested at 10ppm.
- Not all Acai brands are gluten-free. You must check the ingredients, the labeling, and call the manufacturer
- If you are celiac I do not trust powders that are not certified gluten-free, FYI
- So I should probably just tell you that I'm really, really picky when it comes to choosing gluten-free superfood powders! For me, the powders must be certified gluten-free and at a lower PPM than 20.
