Superfood Smoothie #8 - Acai Cherry Smoothie

Acai is by far one of the most hyped superfoods of the moment, which existence “has been kept secret from most of the world for centuries”. The word “secret” is intriguing enough to lure most of us, but then there is a magic phrase “the ultimate superfood” and here we go – crowds of somnambulists are flocking Wholefoods stores searching for mysterious purple berries. Of course, I am one of them, sigh :)
