Who among us hasn’t already heard about a miraculous little fruit by the name of açaí? Consuming this power-berry started becoming trendy a couple of years ago when the market decided to start making profits from the little fruit’s amazing benefits. Native to Brazil and Trinidad, the açaí berry is said to help improve the immune system, boost energy and even improve mental function. Açaí is usually served mixed with honey and guaraná and with fruits like banana and strawberries, accompanied by some granola.
