Ice Cream, You Scream: Belizza Açaí Sorbet

I spent a summer as a Soda Jerk in a Fisherman’s Wharf ice cream shop during college. (Some have dropped the “soda” when they address me, but that’s another story…)

Anyway, it taught me the difference between great ice cream and iced crap. Now, there’s a new so-called superfood that’s available as a low-fat, non-dairy sorbet. The açaí (ah-sigh-EE) palm berry fruit from the Amazon rainforest is supposedly higher in antioxidants than blueberries or pomegranates.

Belizza Açaí Sorbet uses açaí pulp, which tastes like blackberry and chocolate-covered blueberry, as the base for its three flavors: açaí, mango and banana. Cost: $4.50-$5 per pint, where available.

    this belizza sorbet is pretty good, but you guys should take a look at these Acai Roots guys.

    I have been to rio several times and their acai is the real deal. its exactly the same thing you can get in Brazil. The taste is amazing, I am addicted to it.

    they sell this big’O bucket online one gallon that makes 30-40 portions. Its delicious
