  • 1 cup acai berry juice
  • juice of 2 oranges

*To freeze fresh blueberries, wash and dry them, then spread them out on a plate, to avoid clumping. Place in your freezer until frozen. Try to use the blueberries within a few days of freezing them, as they loose flavor the longer they sit.

Divide into 2 glasses and enjoy!
