Sambazon Organic Acai Smoothie

The rich blueberry-chocolate flavor of açaí berries, combined with their astounding nutritional content (more antioxidants than pomegranates, along with a healthy dose of omega-3 fats and a low sugar content), has made these purple wonders an instant favorite among the health conscious.

But açaí’s popularity has threatened rainforest regions in its native Brazil, where some enthusiastic harvesters have been less than conscientious about their effects on the local populations and ecosystems. To counter those effects, Sambazon founded the “Sustainable Açaí Project” to promote local economic health, as well as sustainable harvesting methods. Not only do their business practices feel good, but their delicious açaí smoothies contain supergreens and acerola to bolster energy, immunity and stamina. That feels good all over! Find Sambazon smoothies, sorbets and other products at your local natural grocery for about $4. Learn more about the Sustainable Açaí Project at www.sambazon.com.
