Açai berries can stand on their taste alone – smooth, chocolaty-berry goodness – but because they pack twice as many antioxidants as blueberries and are rich in omega-3 fats and naturally low in sugars, they can comfortably rest on their health laurels, too. A scoop of Sambazon’s smooth-tasting sorbet has all açai’s healthy benefits, plus less sugar than the average apple. Enjoy it plain for dessert, whipped up in a smoothie, or covered with bananas and nuts for a delicious hot-weather breakfast. Kudos also go out to this company, which partners with Brazilian farmers to market organic açai and works to preserve acres of rainforest along the way.
About $5 a pint at natural markets. Check out www.sambazon.com for the full açai story.
