Häagen-Dazs Acai sorbet. What a treat. Low calorie, low fat and extremely satisfying. Give it a try...

I've got some very concentrated Acai juice - Tomorrow I'll make a granita out of it. I can't wait.

Acai is a berry that grows in the Amazon/Brazilian Rainforest. It is EXTREMELY high in antioxidants. It's very interesting and worth doing a Google search on. I have the Monavi Active - the "active" juice also contains glucosamine and esterfied fatty acids.

I think I'll go drink some now

Jeff G is from Indiana - I would assume it's just now a matter of getting it in your area.

It tastes like no other fruit. Maybe a cross between blueberry, blackberry with a touch of apple....

Nice flavor!!
