Why must the açaí be frozen?
Surely more than one has already realized that in
Coraçai we offer our products in freezing state from the fruit at its best ripening time but, why do we do so?
The answer is very simple: maintain the quality of our organic production açaí the best conditions of conservation and, the most important reason for us, its high nutritional values.
The açaí berry is a very peculiar product since, on the one hand, only 10-15% of the fruit is pulp and, on the other, it is a very perishable fruit. Considering that between Europe and the plantations of Brazil there are thousands of kilometers, its transport becomes almost impossible to realize preserving the intact fruit. In less than 24 hours from harvest it is necessary to carry out a rigorous process of elaboration to maintain its high nutritional power. Only then we can transport them in refrigerated chambers or freezers to their destination.

We know that the most cooking lovers will have in mind the answer to this question: endless delicious
dishes of all kinds. The versatility of this food to be treated as an ingredient is tremendous. Despite being one of the most fashionable super fruits, the açai is still unknown to many. For this reason, the most popular forms of preparation of frozen açai are in the form of a shake or a smoothie or as part of a bowl accompanying seeds, fruits and cereals.
But the possibilities offered by frozen açaí go much further. As well as the thousands of kilometers that
separate us in the distance of Belem, the region that produces this berry all terrain. It is here where most
açai is consumed per capita from all over the world and it is here that we find a wide cookbook that, little by little, is spreading everywhere.
Obviously, in this Brazilian region they can enjoy the fruit in perfect state of freshness for the preparation of their dishes. We, as we have commented before, must obtain it in frozen form but this is not an element that has to discourage us when treating this product as an ingredient. Thanks to an optimal preservation process, its flavour and properties remain intact to be used in the kitchen as if it were fresh berry itself.

Then add the frozen fruit (reserving a handful of strawberries for the final topping). Then, to give texture, we add apple juice to the fruits.
