Discover The Recipe

This sweet treat we call Amazon Acai Sorvete (Acai ice cream sorbet), is the perfect combination of creamy mouthfeel and healthy flavors. Packed with nutrients, you can make a delicious dessert in minutes without feeling guilty about tons of added sugar. 

The plant milk base is flavored with bananas, raspberries, and Piquant Post Amazon Acai blend, This is a proprietary spice blend we created to showcase the superfood Acai berry. Acai has grown immensely popular as a superfood packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Additionally, it has a unique chocolate-berry taste that is downright addictive. Acai is a unique berry that can not be farmed conventionally, so every berry is picked by hand in the Amazon. The delicate berry does not travel well, so it must be processed locally and shipped as frozen pulp or powder. 

We've sourced an organic freeze-dried Acai powder that retains its nutrients and flavor and blended it with a few spices for a warm and tangy flavor twist. Make an easy, delicious dessert with our recipe or add it to your favorite dessert recipe, morning yogurt, oatmeal, smoothie, or even salad dressing.

Ingredients

  • 4 bananas, frozen and chopped

  • 1 cup frozen raspberries

  • 3/4 cup plant based milk

  • 2 tsp Piquant Post Amazon Acai blend

Notes

You can start with store bought frozen bananas or you can make your own. Make sure you peel the bananas before freezing them!

All fruit desserts are a great choice when you’re looking for something guilt-free and low calorie!

Make this dessert shortly before serving. If it’s left too long in the freezer it will freeze solid.

This sorbet is a great base for a smoothie bowl! Get more inspiration from this Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl or this Paleo and Vegan Açai Bowl.

Instructions

Place the frozen bananas, frozen raspberries, plant based milk and Piquant Post Amazon Acai blend in a food processor. Purée until smooth. 

Add more plant based milk as necessary to help the mixture become smooth. 

Transfer the mixture to a parchment lined bowl or bread pan and place in your freezer for 20-30 minutes to allow to set up before serving. 

Portion the acai sorvete (sorbet) into 4 cups and garnish with a sprinkle of Amazon Acai spice and a drizzle of agave nectar or honey. 

Alternatives & Substitutions

  • You can change up the fruit in this simple and delicious dessert for endless variety! We love to use mango and pineapple instead of berries for a tropical flair.
