    Starbucks uses acai in their beverages to add a powerful healthy punch. You can totally add an acai supplement or use flavored teas to create your own fun flavors.

    They're rather healthy considering this beverage is basically fruit, milk, and tea. Start each day with one of these, and it will never be a bad one.
