Something I had almost everyday while I was in Brazil: Açái! I am completely addicted. Açaí is basically a type of palm tree that grows wild in the Amazonian jungles of Brazil. I took this photo of the Açaí palm during my hike through the Amazon jungle with hubby.
This Palm contains a dark colored berry called the Açái berry known for its powerful health benefits. Even Oprah lists açaí as one of the top 10 superfoods for age-defying beauty. Yummy and good for your health!
During my visit to Paraty, Brazil the Boutique do Açaí was a little cafe hubby and I went to everyday for our dose of Açaí! The "Açaí bowl" is like a slightly bitter and rich berry smoothie with a sweet crunch from the granola, honey, and banana.
