What could be better than an antioxidant-laden sweet treat that you don’t have to feel guilty about? I’ve combined two berries with the highest antioxidant levels – acai and blueberries – in a wonderfully refreshing sorbet.

What is Acai?

Acai is a berry grown on South American palm trees. They’re high in antioxidants, fiber, and calcium and low in calories. You can find frozen acai berry pulp in the frozen fruit section of Whole Foods Market and other grocery stores. It’s usually sold in packets that are the perfect size for adding to your morning smoothie or mixing up into this Acai Berry Sorbet.

TIPS:

Stir simple syrup until sugar dissolves completely or you’ll end up with grainy sorbet.

Let your simple syrup cool completely before using. Adding hot liquids to your ice cream machine will prevent it from thickening properly.

What could be better than an antioxidant-laden sweet treat that you don’t have to feel guilty about? I’ve combined two berries with the highest antioxidant levels – acai and blueberries – in a wonderfully refreshing sorbet.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 3.5-oz packs Acai pulp, thawed
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lime juice

Instructions

  1. Bring sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepot over medium high heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in the lime zest. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. Combine the Acai pulp, blueberries and lime juice in a blender and puree until smooth. Add the cooled sugar syrup and blend just until it’s thoroughly mixed, about 10 seconds.
  3. Pour the mixture into the chilled bowl of an ice cream machine and churn until thickened, about 30 minutes. Place the sorbet in a freezer-safe container and freeze until firm, at least 2 hours.
