Super Food: Acai sweeps the nation

A frozen but healthy work of art is making its way into our hearts-our hearts then our tummies and then most likely our Instagrams. Having originated from Brazil, acai bowls are sweeping the US. The main ingredient in the bowl are acai berries, which are frozen then blended with coconut, soy and almond milk. The smoothie is then adorned with berries, granola and honey. Is your mouth watering yet? Acai bowls are not only trendy for being delicious, but they are also popular for their wide range of health benefits. Acai berries are anti-oxidant rich, contain fiber and heart-healthy fats making it a super food among health enthusiasts.
