Simple Mango Acaí Smoothie

healthy acai smoothie

healthy, easy acaí smoothie

This simple acaí smoothie recipe is one of my all-time favorites. I usually add banana as the ‘soft tropical fruit’ to these smoothies – but since mangoes seem to be everywhere lately – I tried a fresh champagne mango – and loved it. This dark purple smoothie is delicious for adults – but perfect for kids as well since acaí juice is known for its dark, almost “chocolaty” flavor and texture. Serve this sip as an after-school snack and you’ll be giving them plenty of fiber, antioxidants and even protein. Plus I’ve included a link to my video for this recipe..

Why Acaí? Acaí is high in antioxidants, protein and even healthy omega fats.

Nutrition facts from Samzabon (the brand of acaí juice I use in my smoothies):

Açaí pulp contains…
* ..a remarkable concentration of antioxidants, to help combat premature aging, with 10 times the anthocyanins (purple colored antioxidants) of red wine.
* ..a synergy of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols, to help promote cardiovascular system and digestive tract health.
* ..an almost perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, vital to proper muscle contraction and regeneration.
* ..açaí is a good source of: Essential Fatty acids — to aid in the transport and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins i.e. Vitamins A, E, D, and K”

Recipe below – and you can follow this link to watch my video of making this recipe.

Simple Mango Acaí-Soy Smoothie, aka “the Dark ‘n’ Frosty”
vegan, serves 1

3/4 cup acaí juice
3/4 cup soy milk, plain flavor
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup ice
3/4 cup fresh mango cubes – or sub with one banana

optional: frozen blackberries, strawberries or raspberries – if you add-in more frozen fruit you may need to adjust liquid to compensate. More liquid = thinner smoothie. More frozen fruit = thicker smoothie. You can also use a frozen banana to thicken the smoothie a bit.
