How to take the Acai
The juice and pulp of acai berries are frequently used in various juice blends. In northern Brazil, acai is traditionally served in gourds called “cuias” with tapioca and, depending on the local preference, can be consumed either salty or sweet.
Acai has become popular in southern Brazil where it is consumed cold as acai na tigela (”acai in the bowl”), mostly mixed with granola much like we would have cereal here in North America. Also in Brazil you can buy Acai Berry flavored ice cream and juice.
Several companies now manufacture juices, health drinks, yogurts, and sorbets made from acai berries, often in combination with other fruits.
