Acai Energy Smoothie

photo-25

I usually do smoothies with a little protein powder after my workouts, but I’ve honestly gotten sick of the taste.   I’ve been craving cleaner and fresher smoothies and decided to try out these Acai smoothie packs I’d been eyeing at Whole Foods.  So the other day I ended up creating this Acai Energy Smoothie.

This smoothie is so great because it’s not only packed with antioxidants, but it keeps you energized and satisfied.  Also, acai berries are basically magical.  The antioxidants in acai berries have been shown to improve blood circulation, aid in digestion, increase libido, prevent aging, and even improve skin.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup frozen raspberries

1 acai berry smoothie pack

1 cup almond milk

1 tsp almond extract

1 tbsp chia seeds

2 dates

Directions:

Blend and do a happy dance!

Tip: Add a ripe banana if you’d like it sweeter. Add 1 heaping tbsp of cacao if you’d like a chocolatey treat.
