Summer Açaí Bowl

Summer Açaí Bowl

Summer and fruit are a combo like no other. Summer and açaí bowls however, take it to the next level. If you’re not amongst the hype yet, I’m not sure where you’ve been. Before I launch into how delicious they are, a little bit about how these bowls are ridiculously good for you. Açaí berries are high in a little something called anthocyanin. Basically, they’re a form of antioxidant which is said to have the ability to lower cholesterol levels in the blood stream! There’s plenty more benefits, but that’s the one açaí is most famous for.

So now, the fun part. What I love most about the açaí bowls is going nuts on fruity toppings. Think big. Go large. I’m talking, banana, blueberries, apple, strawberries, mango, coconut, granola, bee pollen, chia seeds – you seriously can’t go wrong. Give it a go on a hot Summers’ day and you won’t regret it!
