Health Food of the Week: Acai Breakfast Bowl
Breakfast of the Week: Acai Breakfast Bowl
The booming popularity of the acai breakfast bowl has begun to spread across the United States since the acai berry was first introduced in 2000. The essence of an acai bowl is very simple. It primarily consists of a really thick smoothie topped with oatmeal and fruit. The main ingredient, the acai berry, is the fruit of the acid palm tree from the Amazon of Brazil and is presented in the form of a frozen puree. These berries are frequently viewed as a good source of antioxidants, fiber, and heart-healthy fats. Not only does this breakfast have important health benefits, but it also attains a flavorful, dark chocolate-like taste that many cannot resist.
This delicious breakfast can be found at local juice or smoothie spots like Sambazon Cafe in Southern California, but there are also a variety of homemade recipes that can be found online for those who want to try making the breakfast at home.
