Tips + Suggestions

FROZEN BERRIES can be much cheaper and more sustainable with alot less packaging than fresh berries. Frozen berries retain all their nutrients as they are picked at optimum freshness and quickly frozen.

 

*PROTEIN POWDER – Use what you like. I use a neutral flavoured plant protein with NO added sweeteners or fake sugars and flavours.  

 

ACAI BERRY is an environmental impact issue you can buy sustainably grown and harvested if you do a little research.

 

PURCHASE from a trusted + sustainable source and always read the ingredients label.
