Our acaí super-smoothie

Oh, how we love to start our morning off with a fresh and sweet smoothie! And in this super-smoothie we have added acaí, a berry considered one of the top superfoods, due to their incredible antioxidant properties and other numerous health benefits.

Fun fact:  Acaí has a name nobody seems to get right. Did you know it is actually pronounced
AH- SIGH-EEE! There you go, now you go it.

Ingredients
3 dl raspberries
1 banana
1 tsp. acaí powder
A dash of agave syrup (for extra sweetness)
Almond milk (how much depends on the consistency you want)

Mix all the ingredients in a blender, add to a glass jar and serve with a glass straw. As simple as that! Enjoy!

2 dl frozen pineapple
2 handfuls of spinach
1 dl oatmeal
1 small banana
Almond milk (as much as you need to get the consistency you want)

Instructions
Mix everything in a blender and enjoy!

1/2 cup frozen mango
2 handful fresh spinach
A dash of agave nectar (or honey)
Unsweetened almond milk
