Creamy Coconut-Acai

Acai berries are considered a superfood and are known for their antioxidant benefits. Acai bowls, topped with an assortment of fruits and nuts, have become a popular breakfast. In this recipe, the frozen acai purée is blended with coconut to create a rich, flavorful, smoothie. Coconut milk and cream are sources of healthy fats called medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). Research has found that consuming MCTs promotes weight loss by decreasing appetite and increasing energy.
