Acai Raspberry Freeze Smoothie.
This Acai Raspberry Freeze smoothie recipe is layered with fruity goodness and it’s a perfect introduction to acai! It’s good as a snack or an enticing breakfast, and enticing way to stay Raw Till Four! We recommend trying this as a post-workout smoothie as well. The coconut water blended with the bananas makes this a perfect cool down treat! Best of all, it’s like having 2 smoothies in 1! Blend it in your Blendtec or Vitamix blender to pulverize those raspberry seeds and bananas for a thick and creamy smoothie. Enjoy the strong, distinct flavors of the bananas and berries in each layer. This layered smoothie recipe gives you a double taste sensation that you won’t regret! And let’s not forget the big boost of antioxidants and vitamins you get from the acai and raspberries.
