I went to Hawaii years ago and came home obsessed with this one treat I assumed only existed in exotic lands. Lo and behold, the local Wegman’s stocked the crucial ingredient, Sambazon Acai Smoothie mix. I should have known trusty ole Wegman’s would pull through. I think large grocery stores are beginning to stock it also, and according to the Sambazon website, you can find them at Costco. I use my Ninja and whip this little treat up with lots of delicious toppings. In the picture above, I confess, the granola is not Paleonola, BUT I just ordered some and its on the way. The one used in the picture is a gluten-free granola that’s a little gentler on my stomach than other granola brands. Granola and craft beer… and chocolate have proven to be my greatest weaknesses in pursuit of a clean diet, c’est la vie, I’m merely human. Here’s the recipe, hope you like it : )
