8 best Açaí combinations for your smoothie and their properties

Açaí is a famous tropical fruit from the Amazon rainforest in Brazil and it’s very popular among people that aim for a healthy lifestyle. Rich in antioxidants, healthy fats and fibre, these berries can be consumed in many ways, being one of the most popular: smoothies. Açaí isn’t considered a superfruit for no reason. It helps with digestion, boosts energy and promotes heart health. Its amount of Omega 3 fatty acids also reduces inflammation and levels of cortisol, the hormone released in response to stress. There are many other foods that can match perfectly with açaí to create delicious smoothies. See our list below for the 8 best Açaí combinations for your smoothie and their properties:

8 Açaí combinations for Smoothies that you should try

1. Banana - the most popular combination for smoothie

Bananas are number one on the list. Being one of the most popular fruits in Brazil, it’s the most common fruit to mix with your açaí smoothie (or bowl) not just because of the flavour, it can prevent muscle cramps and isare also rich in complex carbs. One medium banana contains about 100 calories, 422 milligrams of potassium and provides a stream of glucose to your body, making it a perfect fuel for your workout. Bananas are also good for memory preservation, as they contain tryptophan, an amino acid that helps a person’s ability to learn.

2. Strawberries - a perfect combination for açaí smoothies

Smothies 1

Another very common fruit that goes well with açaí. Strawberries are a great source of manganese and potassium, as well as vitamin C, and are among the top 20 antioxidant fruits. Sodium-free, fat-free and cholesterol-free, and it tastes great with açaí. 1 cup of fresh strawberries (330 grams) contains approximately: 

  • 2.22g of protein
  • 50 mg of calcium
  • 110 calories 
  • 500 mg of potassium
  • 120 mg of iron

3. Coconut flakes

Coconut flakes are just one of several other different forms of dried coconut, another tropical food with great health benefits. Another tropical fruit popular in warm countries, coconut contains minerals such as calcium, copper, potassium, zinc and magnesium, and it’s also high in dietary fibre, which makes you full for longer and helps with digestive issues and heart disease. Because of its high level of saturated fats, it is wise to eat it in moderation. There are sweetened and unsweetened types of coconut flakes to fit your needs.

4. Almond milk

For people that want to reduce their calorie intake, almond milk is a great alternative to dairy milk. Naturally low in carbohydrates and an excellent source of vitamins E, which treats inflammation and stress in your body (by cleaning up excess molecules) and vitamine D, which its deficiency is associated with high blood pressure, muscle weakness and heart disease, almond milk is naturally lactose-free and vegan, a great option for people with lactose intolerance. 

5. Honey

Smothies 2
Honey is a natural sweetener that’s been used for centuries now and if we’re talking about health, it is the perfect alternative to refined sugar in your açaí smoothie. Calcium, copper, iron and magnesium are just a few nutrients that come with it. 2 teaspoons of honey contain approximately 32 calories, so it doesn’t make a huge caloric difference on your diet either. Honey is also great for muscle repair as it boosts the glycogen production in your body, which is good for blood sugar control too. Just like açaí, honey is also considered a superfood, and like every superfood, balance is key.

6. Peanut Butter

Another favourite for the athletes. Peanut butter is praised by fitness enthusiasts and contains a variety of nutrients that can improve heart health, such as: monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), Magnesium, vitamin E, niacin and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)

A great source of protein, peanut butter can be considered a low-carbohydrate food with high-calorie content, so if you want to gain or lose weight, remember that 2 tablespoons of peanut butter contain around:

  • 200 calories
  • 7.02g of protein
  • 3.05 of saturated fats
  • 1.08g of fiber
  • 17g of calcium 
  • 2.08g of sugar

7. Oatmeal

The list of benefits for eating oatmeal is long, as this supergrain food should be on everybody’s diet. It lowers cholesterol levels, improves blood sugar control (which is great for people with type 2 diabetes or obesity), it is rich in antioxidants, helps with digestion and constipation and it may increase the sensation of fullness. Research has also shown it lowers the chance of colon cancer and relieves skin irritation. Oatmeal adds a thick texture to your açaí smoothie and softens the flavour.

8. Protein Powder

Protein powder helps build muscle, make enzymes, hormones and repair tissue. There’s no muscle growth without protein, and protein shakes are very popular among athletes, as it can also repair damaged muscles, so it speeds up recovery after intense exercise. 

People should always calculate their nutritional goals and needs before adding protein powders on their regular diet. Too much consumption over the years may damage your kidneys, liver, and affect your body’s calcium balance.

A nutritionist can guide you properly and tell you if you really need to add protein powder on your regular açaí smoothie, how much, and how often.

9. Mango - a delicious addon for smoothie and açaí bowls

Smoothie 4

Native to southeast Asia and also very popular in Brazil, the flavour of mango goes great with açaí. Low in calories, high in Vitamin A, copper and vitamin B, it is also an antioxidant fruit that helps your digestion by breaking down large food molecules, making it easier for your body to absorb them. By pairing with other fruits that are rich in protein and fibrefiber, it may help reduce blood sugar spikes. 

Mixing frozen açaí puree (or powder) with any of these foods will result in a healthy, energy booster smoothie, ideal for people who are looking for a balanced lifestyle. The many benefits of these superfoods will definitely make a notable difference on your overall health, well-being and quality of life. Be it before or after exercise, or just because it’s delicious.
