Many food trends out there these days don’t live up to their hype, but when it comes to acai bowls the hype is 100 percent well-deserved.
The Brazilian superfood acai has caught the attention of health fanatics around the world. This trendy new treat is not only delicious but it’s healthy too, it’s low in sugar, a good source of fiber, antioxidants, and heart-healthy fats. Acai has been proven to help brighten skin, fight harmful organisms, aid digestion, and assist in weight loss and/or maintaining a healthy weight. The berry itself comes from the acai palm tree, which is native to Central and South America.
Each organic bowl has an açai base blended to a super smooth and thick consistency. These bowls are then topped with a mix of fresh fruit, granola, and other toppings such as Nutella, almond butter or peanut butter. Everyone’s craving them, but where’s the best place to get acai bowls in Hoboken?
