This recipe contains açai berries, believed to help aging and disease. Make sure to use unsweetened coconut water. There is a difference. Coconut water contains 100 times more potassium than a banana and has no sugar added. Feel free to use fresh or frozen berries.
- 1 liter or 2 pints coconut water
- ½ cup blackberries
- ½ cup blueberries
- ½ cup raspberries
- ¼ cup pomegranate juice
- 3 tablespoons açai puree
- 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal or sunflower seeds
- 1 tablespoon Agave nectar
Thaw any frozen fruit or puree before using it. Combine the fruit with the coconut water, juice and nuts and blend the ingredients until smooth puree. Taste to see if the drink is sweet enough. If a sweeter drink is desired, add the recommended amount of Agave nectar and blend some more to incorporate. Serve in chilled glasses and if desired, top with a few fresh berries.
