Açaí berries are antioxidant powerhouses from the fruit of the palm tree, Euterpe oleracea, which grows in Central and South America. They have 10x the antioxidants of purple grapes and 2x the antioxidants of blueberries. Açaí berries contain 19 different amino acids, including an optimal combination of essential amino acids, the building blocks of protein. Açaí contains 8 grams of protein per 100 gram serving. They also have essential fatty acids, in the form of Omegas 3-6-9, as well as beneficial flavonoids, magnesium, and potassium. Try this superfood in the following vegan ice cream!

Am I missing it? When in the recipe does it say to add the acai powder?

Açai is an excellent meal. It's rich in essential minerals (Ca, Fe, Mg, Zn), but the levels of copper (Cu) and especially manganese (Mn) are surprisingly high. Fe (Iron) absorption is impaired by Mn!

Sambazon makes the only organic acai frozen purée, freeze dried powder and juices. You can get them at your natural grocer and places like vitamin shoppe carry the powder as well. I am definitely partial to them as I worked for them for several years and know how great their products are. www.sambazon.com

This sounds delicious but if you want easy just buy Sambazon's organic acai sorbet. I can eat the whole container in one sitting its so good.
