6 egss
2/3 cup skim or your favorite milk
2 teas of either Splenda, Equal or sugar
1 and 1/2 teas MonaVie Active Premier Acai Juice Blend

Acai is a fruit that grows only on the Acai Palm Trees in the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. The Acai berry is small in size (smaller than a grape) and is dark purple in color. Acai has a berry flavor with a subtle chocolate after taste. Acai is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Many natives of the Rainforest could eat a diet of only acai and live till an old age without many illnesses found in modern society. Acai is widely considered by many scientists to be a SuperFood, but you can’t get it anywhere. MonaVie has the most potent form of acai boasting a compound that is 10 times the polyphenols of traditional acai. MonaVie Active has glucosamine in it to help with joint health.
