Ape Snacks | Acai Berry Smoothie Bowl

Native to Central and South America, this reddish-purple fruit is believed to be even richer in antioxidants than raspberries, cranberries, blackberries and even blueberries! Sure enough, as the acai berry gathers momentum and fame as a health superhero, it’s becoming a staple feature in online and wellness blogger recipes, including those of high-profile health moguls like Kayla Itsines.

So what is it about this little berry that’s got everyone so excited?

Disease-fighting: High in anthocyanins (a plant antioxidant) which help to lower cholesterol levels, eating acai berries on a regular basis is linked to heart health and strengthened cell protection.

Weight-loss aid: Touted by nutritionists as a superfood, acai may help you to not only lose weight, but maintain a healthy weight. One interesting study* found that acai berry pulp has the ability to reduce the negative effects of a high-fat diet.

Digestive hero: These high-fibre, detoxifying beauties help to cleanse our digestive system, keeping it in tip-top condition.

Anti-aging effects: The antioxidants in acai berries may have a hand in slowing (or even reversing!) typical ageing processes related to oxidative damage – with two times the amount of antioxidants as blueberries, turning back time may finally become a possibility…
