Skip the sugar-laden, store-bought ice cream in favour of this deliciously healthy vegan Acai Frozen Yoghurt – it’s perfect for those hot days when you’re craving a frozen sweet treat. Plus, it takes just 5 minutes to make!
In this recipe, Healthy Luxe has used frozen blueberries in combination with Amazonia’s Acai Pure sachets (but you could also use Acai Energy!). Made from hand-harvested açaí berries that grow wild in the Amazon rainforest, our Acai Pure contains 7 x the antioxidants of blueberries plus Omega-3, 6 & 9 essential fatty acids, which play important roles in the body.
Omega 3s support our heart, brain and joints. Omega 6s support hormonal balance and healthy skin, hair and nails. And finally, Omega 9s promote good cardiovascular health and immunity.
To make this fro-yo super creamy, Healthy Luxe has blended in some organic cashews, which are low in sugar and rich in fibre, heart-healthy fats, and plant protein. She’s also added a dash of maple syrup for some extra sweetness, but you can omit this if you like.

1/2 cup organic cashews (preferably soaked for 2-3 hours)
1/2 cup filtered water
2 cups frozen blueberries
2 sachets Amazonia Acai Pure
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 cup vanilla coconut yogurt
Place drained cashews and water into high-speed blender. Blend for 2-3 minutes, or until smooth.
Add remaining ingredients. Blend for a further 1-2 minutes, until smooth.
Freeze for approx. 2 hours, serve and enjoy. It’s best enjoyed immediately as if it returns to the freezer, you’ll need to wait for it to defrost to the right consistency.
