Açai Sorbet


In its pure state, açai pulp is sour and slightly bitter, but once a little sweetener is added, the flavor resembles concentrated blueberries with a hint of chocolate. "Agave nectar is a good option here because its lower-glycemic-load sugar is a better complement to açai's phytonutrients," explains Los Angeles–based nutritionist Ashley Koff, RD.
