Grown in the Amazon, Acai (ah-sah-EE) is a reddish-purple Palm fruit known as a "Super Food. It's packed full of antioxidants, fiber and heart-healthy fats, and is a good source of iron, calcium, magnesium and vitamin A.
Acai Bowls are a popular treat on the North Shore, using acai sorbet. While it is traditionally served with granola and fresh fruit, the sky is the limit with how you want to top it.
Here at Coffee Gallery, we use Sambazon Organic Acai Sorbet - USDA Organic certified, Non-GMO, Vegan & Gluten Free, and Fair Trade Approved, it's something you can feel good about eating! (click here for sorbet nutrition facts)
Our Acai Bowl is served simply with our house-made granola and sliced banana, drizzled with a little honey. We offer additions like strawberries, blueberries, mango or papaya, so you can customize your bowl however you like!
Our granola is gluten free, and produced in our on-site bakery. (See granola ingredients here)
How to make an Acai Bowl at home:
3 medium scoops acai sorbet (sold at most natural food stores)
1/2 cup sliced fresh fruit, of your choice
drizzle of honey, optional
For best results, assemble in a wide bowl, sprinkling granola evenly over sorbet, and topping with fresh fruit and a little drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
