Brazilian Açaí Bowl

Açaí berries come from açaí palm trees that grow in the Amazon rainforest. It's said that they are named after an Amazonian girl. Her name, Iaca, is açaí spelled backward. The fruits from the tree saved her tribe from hunger. They have been an indispensable part of the Brazilian diet ever since. In some regions, the dinner table is not complete without a bowl of açaí pulp as a filling side dish. Our take on the açaí bowl adds the benefits of the trendy superfruit with açaí powder.

My daughter gave me a subscription as a Christmas present while our families were quarantining together. It was so much fun! It introduced us to several cuisines that were totally new to us. The recipes were easy to follow and the spices were transformative - fresh and pungent and delicious.
