The perfect açai

Smoothies bowls are one of my favorite things to eat. I love them so much that if I could, I would literally only eat smoothie bowls. And one of my favorites is açai. The first time I tasted açai was in Brazil, before it became popular worldwide. In Brazil it is often eaten without any … More The perfect açai
