We already know all the health benefits of the acai berry, this typical Brazilian berry. Researches highlights the antioxidant power of the fruit, even when compared with other berries (1), but we will talk about these scientific evidences in another blog post.
The fact is that the traditional Acai Bowl, so popular amongst many athletes specially the jiujitsu (BJJ) fighters, is very energetic and packed with calories and carbs. A portion of about 100g contains 80 kcal, many awesome nutrients such as essential fatty acids, fiber, vitamins, amino acids, electrolytes, antioxidants and minerals, but is very low in protein.
Now, what if you could add 22g of high quality whey protein that actually contains more acai berries powder and flavor to your bowl ?
So, from now on, YES YOU CAN! Take a look at this delicious recipe using our exclusive Gracie Whey Protein with Collagen Peptides and Acai Berries:
