Acai Bowl

What is Açaí?

Açaí (pronounced ah-sigh-EE) is a deep dark berry found in South America. They look a bit like blueberries, or small dark grapes, and are responsible for giving açaí bowls their infamous deep purple hue. 

Açaí is famously known for being a superfood because it’s packed with antioxidants. Which in my opinion is probably why these bowls are so popular (in addition to how picturesque these bowls look when served, of course!). 

Here’s a great article about açaí and 10 things you should know about this healthy little fruit.
