The açaí berry made its entrance into U.S. cuisine when two surfers from California were so impressed by the energy-boosting qualities of the fruit that they figured out how to import the puréedversion. It’s a small, blueberry-looking purple fruit absolutely stuffed with antioxidants and amino acids. It also serves as the foundation for Instagram’s favorite breakfast food.
