Mock Acai na Tigela (Mock Frozen Acai Berries Smoothie)

What you need: 

3 cups frozen blueberries

1 banana, not frozen, sliced

2 tablespoons agave nectar

4 teaspoons cocoa powder (should fine powder, not chunky)

1/2 to 3/4 cup water

 

What you do: 

1. In a blender, place blueberries, banana, agave nectar, and cocoa powder. Add just enough water to get the blender to blend everything into a smooth slurry.

2. Pour into a bowl or a small cup and eat with a spoon.

Since so much energy is required to transport acai berries all the way from Brazil, I came up with this alternative using blueberries and a bit of cocoa to mimic the flavour of acai berries. The overall flavour is really similar.

Preparation Time: 
20 minutes

SO HOW'D IT GO?

For a more optimal level of sweetness, use 4 Tbsp agave instead of 2 Tbsp.

Also, in order to avoid cocoa processed through child slavery, please use cocoa that is Fair Trade.  http://thecnnfreedomproject.blogs.cnn.com/2012/01/19/child-slavery-and-chocolate-all-too-easy-to-find/
