How The Acai Berry Is Locally Prepared In The Amazon
The Acai Berry can be prepared as a drink in the following way...
First the Acai Berry Juice needs to be extracted from the Acai Berries then the Acai Drink is made like this:
The pits of the Acai Berry are placed in water so that it can soften the fine peel that covers the Acai fruit.
Soon after, the Acai pits are kneaded with water in a clay bowl or nowadays a machine may do it. The Acai mixture is then filtered through special sieves to obtain the Acai's purple liquid, thick and with a very distinct flavor.
After adding sugar, tapioca meal or farinha-d'água (manioc flour), locals drink this Acai juice cold from a gourd or bowl with a spoon.
