Acai Pearl Smoothie

Adding pearl powder, yes you heard me—ground pearls—to this smoothie is quite exciting. When meeting up with the ever-so-knowledgeable Christine Della Cioppa a couple of weeks ago, she sure took my every-couple-of-days acai, chia, banana, stevia, sprouted almond milk smoothie to another level when she made me this INCREDIBLE acai ice cream bowl and chatted about the beauty results of pearl as an herb (recipe coming very soon—it’s going to blow your mind, trust me).

Nonetheless, I ran right to Erewhon and bought some pearl powder to add to this smoothie in hopes that my skin will turn as fluorescent and glowing as that of a pearl. And not only hugely beautifying, this smoothie also serves as the perfect mid-afternoon mega energy boost when you start loosing steam. The bee pollen and acai will keep you buzzing for hours!
