Acai Bowl

Considered a superfood by nutritionist oracles, acai is a small purple berry from the Amazon. Its puree is the basis of health-food bowls that can be as uniform as a smoothie or as vareigated as fruit salad. A great place to get acquainted with acai bowls is a restaurant called Backyard Bowls in Santa Barbara, California. Here, the classic berry bowl combines acai, banana, mango, pineapple juice, berries, and coconut milk under a crowd of granola and honey. The restaurant’s more exotic green bowl is made with acai, banana, kale, spinach, ginger, lime, and apple juice, all topped with granola, strawberries, blueberries, honey, and chia seeds.
