Before blending, run the açai packet under warm water for five seconds to soften. If you don’t have a high-speed blender, let the packet sit at room temperature to further soften before blending. If the blended result is runny, place it in the freezer for a few minutes. Find frozen açai pulp at health foods stores, well-stocked grocers, and online (look for brands Sambazon, Acai Roots, Amazon Planet, or AmaFruits). Check the ingredients because some packets include guarana, a seed-based sweetener from South America that contains approximately twice the amount of caffeine as coffee beans.
Pour into a bowl, top with your favorite toppings (below), and serve, or transfer to an airtight container and freeze until ready to serve.
