Had a blast at the recent launch of ABSOLUT BERRI-AÇAÍ at the W Hotel in Chicago.

Here is what I created and offered that evening.

The Berri Pixie

Unsweetened Açaí Puree (Sambazon sells one, frozen)
Vanilla Kefir
Cinnamon Syrup

Easy shake. Strain over ice or serve up.

I wanted something delicious, fun, creamy and actually healthy. Something that you could have anytime…but would really work for brunch.

Acai has some berry and chocolate tones and the cinnamon really goes well with it. The Kefir could be plain or vanilla. I actually blended both. The Acai needs to be sweetened and the Kefir is acidic so the syrup really works without over sweetening.

This was very well received and I was very happy with this drink and it has the taste of real acai that you dont usually get.
