There’s nothing better than starting the day with something fresh, so HI Now host Kanoe Gibson and Kainoa Carlson are showing you how to make an Acai Pono Smoothie with products from Puna Noni Naturals!

Ingredients:

1 banana

1/2 cup blueberries

6 strawberries

1.5 tsp Puna Noni Organic Acai Juice Powder

8 oz Almond Milk (you can also use other milks, water, or juice)

1 tbsp Puna Noni juice — for extra antioxidants!

Puna Noni is a family owned and operated company founded by a local fireman, and its products all use noni grown in volcanic soil on the Big island. Noni is also known as Hawaii’s super fruit, so it’s packed with vitamins, minerals, and a multitude of health benefits! Not only is it good internally, but also topically for skin conditions. Noni helps to support a healthy immune system, healthy digestion, weight loss, healthy joints. It reduces inflammation and helps with mild pain and muscle cramps. There are too many to name them all!

You can get noni in a number of ways from Puna Noni. It offers pure noni juice that you can use in smoothies, dressings and teas along with noni powder that can go into smoothies and acai bowls. There’s also its noni supplements with no additives — it is 100 percent pure! And finally, you can get vegan capsules that are perfect for travel.

Puna Noni prides itself on making the best vegan, cruelty free, GMO free and eco-friendly products! There’s a wide range of products, too — from hair care, body wash and soaps, to lip balm and even bath salts. Its handmade body products are safe for rivers, lakes and the ocean. Since noni is packed full of ant-iaging properties, the oil is super moisturizing and healing!

Puna Noni even sells locally printed reusable bags that are made of food grade dyes.
