YOU, ME & ACAI
Everyone loves it, not everyone knows how to pronounce it. Açaí is a palm fruit originated from Brazil that is usually served as a smoothie. Açaí is frozen then mashed, often times served with other fruits or granola. For the most fruitful bowl, choose your favorite natural sweets to add extra texture and flavor. While most people go bananas, we like to spice it up by adding strawberries or blueberries. Next, no bowl is complete without adding an extra crunch. While many people go nuts or choose to add granola to their bowls, we always choose Vanini chocolate chunks. You can’t go wrong with any of these options, but let’s be real, we’re in it for the chocolate. Açaí bowls are sweet, tangy, refreshing and filling! It’s the perfect breakfast, lunch or snack for the summer. Soon you’ll açaí how yummy this bowl can be!
PARFAIT PERFECT PEAR
Parfait was originated in France as a frozen dessert that gets made into a custard-like puree. In America, this version isn’t beaten to a pulp. American parfait usually includes more ingredients and toppings. Whether you choose chocolate pudding, vanilla pudding or yogurt, a parfait is sure to keep you cool and refreshed. For our parfait, we suggest layering up yogurt with pear and lots of chocolate chunks. Use our 62% dark pear and cinnamon flavored bar for your chunks, and add a dash of cinnamon to top it all off. For an even more decadent dish, use chocolate pudding and layer with our 86% dark chocolate flavored bar. This bitter sweet sensation will have you going cocoa crazy.
THE RIPE SALAD EXISTS
Wisdom is knowing tomatoes are fruit, knowledge is not putting them in your fruit salad. For an easy and refreshing crowd pleaser, fruit salads are great because they can be tailored to anyone’s taste buds. We suggest a berry delicious fruit salad, with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries; Topped off with Vanini chocolate chunks, of course! You can completely change the game of this dish by using a different batch of fruit, such as mangos, watermelon, apples and more. Try melting Vanini chocolate and drizzling it on top for an even sweeter bowl. You can even add in your own juices or syrup and serve this as an appetizer or dessert.
While you’re having fun in the sun, don’t forget to stay cool this summer. There are tons of ways to stay refreshed just by eating the right foods. Fruit might as well be summer’s best friend, which is why we’ve put together a few easy recipes that include your favorite fruits and favorite flavored Vanini chocolate bars.
