    It sure is expensive and not exacly low carb...
    On the other hand, lots of anti-oxidants and omega fatty acids...

    I can vouch for it without resorting to Gracie nutriding as my parents are health freaks and had me start using it before I even started BJJ. It's no crazy instant cure for everything but it does give a nice mental/physical boost. I don't know about the health benefits but the boost is nice.

    The combination of both tastiness and likely health benefits are my "problem"....
    I got somewhat "addicted" to these "sambazon" smoothies.
    I usually can control food cravings pretty well (since most other food I crave is unhealthy and I hence have a good reason not to eat/drink it), but no so well for these evil acai smoothies.
    It might be wishful thinking/placebo effect/coincidence but I am quite convinced that the acai smoothies help my skin (I tend to have skin problems like acne, easy to get infected, etc).

    Waitrose in the UK sell both an Acai based smoothie and pure Acai juice, the juice is about 1.60 I think for a large carton, very nice stuff it certainly is on my fruit juice rotation list.
