But if you choose to go the pineapple or orange ingredient route, you'll get a fusion of sweet and citrus. Açai has often been described as slightly tart with an earthy underlying taste. It's a very versatile fruit that pairs well with many different ingredients.
Why is Acai Always Frozen?
Fresh Açaí berries will not be found in the produce section of grocery stores since the berries themselves have a short shelf life.

We also have other acai products that aren't frozen, like our energy drinks and juices.
