Acai

Mmmmm - this stuff rocks in smoothies. Hard to find though. Just found their website - I use the "smoothie packs".

acai stuff is too expensive... plus anti-oxidants are a bit overrated.

acai also has lots of vitamins and omega fatty acids, plus low fat and low sugar. It does have more antioxidants than any other food out there.

Yep, you don't taste any nastiness if it's mixed with fruit and OJ and stuff (I put a little Splenda in, too... I'm a sugarholic like that ).

BTW, what are you doing drinking a smoothie at 3:30 in the afternoon?

Acai smoothies are great! They're way overpriced though. I've noticed they're popping up in a lot of the local food stores around here lately.

well, not the resounding review I'd hoped for...

No, no smoothies this afternoon. I just stumbled across the links and was reading up on their product and thought I'd throw it out here.

If it's so nasty you have to bury it in berries and OJ...I'll pass.

It can't be good for you if it doesn't taste good.

Okay, it's not bad, it just has a unique taste that you wouldn't associate with berries.

Yes, it's that bad. Yicks.

You know how pineapple tastes right after you brush your teeth? Acai tastes like that all the time. Blechh.

No, can't say I've ever had pineapple after brushing my teeth.

The only time I've had acai was in some acai/pomegranate juice stuff that I got a while ago. From what I remember, it was just really tart, and cost about $5 for a little 8 oz bottle.

I've been seeing some different health drinks with acai berries in it - haven't tried anything yet. But all the stuff I've read about them say great things aoub them.

That same yucky stuff that your boyfriend posted - Sambazon. It was sharp tasting and sour.

hmm stuff that is good for ya seems to taste bad. like wheatgrass. I tried it at a smoothie place - and the counter person looked mortified at my suggestion to put that shot of greenie goodness into my smoothie. No she said - it "oxidizes". Ok, drink it like a shot. UGH! Felt like I mowed the lawn with my mouth. Had to wipe the tongue off!
