what’s açai?

Açai is the fruit of the açai palm found in the tropical forests of South America. Its shape is very similar to grapes, its color is impressive and robust purple, and they have a very large seed inside. The meat and skin have a very high concentration of nutrients.

Where to buy it? You can buy the pulp frozen in the freezer section of the grocery aisle. You can also find it as powder on its own or in superfood mixes. I buy them in both presentations, but for this banana and açai ice cream, I prefer the frozen one.

açai Benefits

Açai berries have many benefits and are considered an excellent source for many things and uses. You can find them in skincare products, vitamins, and protein powders.

Açai berries are rich in fiber and have super-powerful antioxidants. So this ice cream is super healthy and very easy to make.

banana and açaci ice cream ingredients

  • Frozen bananas. It is easy to freeze bananas, peel them, cut them into slices, put them in a freezer bag, and wait about 4 hours or overnight.
  • Frozen açai pulp. I like the Sambazon brand, but any other will do.
  • Sweetener, I use maple syrup in this recipe, but feel free to use any other you like. Coconut sugar and cane sugar will work great.
  • Vanilla*opcional. I like adding vanilla to this recipe because I feel that its flavor brings this ice cream to a dessert level instead of a smoothie bowl (which you know I also love).

How to freeze bananas properly

  • Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Put the banana slices separate from one another.
  • Put the cookie sheet in the freezer, and when frozen, keep it in a freezer bag.
