Okay, I drink a big green smoothie everyday for breakfast andhave for months and still don’t like it much, no matter how I try to mix it up. I actually made something today that I could live on!!!!!! My norm is to make one just before I leave in the morning and sip it on my drive. I actually pulled over 10 minutes...

Blend or Vita-mix. If you enjoy right away, it is a rich frozen delight. Later on it tastes good too, but not frozen.

NOTE: There are two types of Acai by Sambazon…I use the one with no added sugar that has 7g of carbs.

Okay, I drink a big green smoothie everyday for breakfast andhave for months and still don’t like it much, no matter how I try to mix it up. I actually made something today that I could live on!!!!!! My norm is to make one just before I leave in the morning and sip it on my drive. I actually pulled over 10 minutes into the commute (and was late to work!) just to write down the ingredients so I wouldn’t forget later. If that doesn’t peak your interest, I give up :))))

Wait ‘til you see the hot pink-purple color. No more green goop! (sorry)

After reading another post on this site, I did a little research and found that Amazon-Mania is the only brand of RAW acai in the US. Everything else is pasteurized and/or contains soy lethicin and other preservatives. Amazon-Mania's product is acai pulp, which is the closest thing you can get to the berry off the tree. Powder is far from raw, since it is processed. They have 2 products and according to them, AcaiRaw is 100% raw and contains only acai and purified water. AcaiTwist is 90% raw and 10% evaporated cane juice, citric acid and guarana extract. Although I am 95% raw, I tried Twist and it is absolutely delicious. Nevertheless, I eat Raw every day. I blend it with raw cacao, a banana and a splash of apple juice (i juice my own). YUM!!! You can find it in Whole Foods in NY tristate area or you can contact them at http://www.amazon-mania.com for other retailers or if you want to buy it direct. In fact, I just had them ship me acai, as they’re having a sale on Raw thru April 30th.

When I give my kids green smoothies, I serve them in green cups with a lid and straw. Helps a lot!!! And if you don't like green smoothies, just start off by adding a smaller amount of greens, and as the days go by add more. Also, try spinach, little or no added taste. Unless you just don't like green smoothies because of the actual color, lol.

This sounds perfect for a 7 year old with a hot pink room who grudgingly drinks green smoothies!

MANDELICIOUS - I am glad that I am not alone. Check out my other smoothies. Nothing personal to anyone out there, but they are the only ones I can tolerate lately.

No, this brand only has acai. I am diabetic and try to keep the carbs low. This has 7 carbs per pkg and is organic. You might be thinking of the frozen smoothie acai that is syrupy and gross.

This does sound very good but hust wanted to point out that if you are using the frozen brand I believe it has sugar added to it? If I am wrong let me know.

(I meant that the acai is $$$, not the smoothie in general. Hey $5 for a huge smoothie is better than that much for a latte, right?)
