I arrived in Brasil a week ago to visit my parents and young sister. It had been two years now since my last visit, and one of the things they discovered during that time (that I really had to try) was Açaí.
Apparently Açaí is the athletes fruit – very nutritious, very caloric but very healthy.
This fruit really resembles the blueberries, but purple and red in color. What we had was not the fruit itself but a sort of ice-cream.
Today my sister asked, with her best brasilian accent, since it isn’t ice-cream or juice of açaí what was it called – it is Açaí cream.
Everywhere you will find shops that sell it – and finally today I joined the athletes in one thing – eating this super fruit.
I am just not sure they also have it with sugar, powder milk and chocolate.
Healthy or not – it is really delicious! — But I will still pretend it was a super healthy desert.
