Acai bowls are one of the most popular "health trends" right now and we are obsessed with them! They taste as good, if not better then they look. While Acai bowls are available in many juice bars and heath food places, you can also make them easily at home. Acai berries are the fruits of acai palm trees, which are mostly grown in Brazil’s Amazon rain forest. Acari berries are know as Brazilian superfood. Packed with nutrients and antioxidents this is a great treat any time of day. Not only is this superfood incredibly good for you, but it’s also delicious. One of the most popular ways to eat these berries is in an acai bowl. Acai are bitter but when blended with fruit they taste amazing. An acai bowl is basically a smoothie in a bowl with toppings. For best results, use a high-powered blender like a Vitamix; as the acai bowl base is thicker than a smoothie, blenders with lower horsepower may have trouble processing it.
