Chances are if you opened whatever form of Social Media you use (and you are health conscious) you have likely seen a beautiful and bright fruit/granola filled bowl that looks a million times better than that protein shake you had this morning for breakfast.
That my friends is an Acai Bowl in full force. The Acai Berry is super popular and for good reason – the fatty acid profile of the Acai Berry closely resembles Olive Oil – rich in healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. The good fat! Yes, it is still a berry with sugar so let’s not go completely nuts, but these guys offer a powerful nutrient profile.
Let’s take a look at the 5 of our favorite Acai Bowls in Miami.
- JugoFresh: Sana de Rana Bowl is “Good Vibrations” Served Fresh
Packed with protein and blended with almond milk, banana, apple, coconut meat, almond butter, chia seed, spirulina, maca, mesquite, chlorella, raw honey, crunchy super berry coconut cashew topping and bee pollen. If you don’t feel better after gulping this sucker then… grab another!
Chlorella is so underrated and I don’t get why, because this blue-green algae is bursting with protein. 3 tbsp. has 16 grams! Also, Chlorella is a wonderful source of iron for my vegan friends out there and is a great source of zinc (immunity). What are you waiting for? Grab Chlorella nowwww people!
- Raw Republic: PB + A Bowl
Acai, banana, almond milk, peanut butter, topped with granola, cacao nibs, and banana. Other fav is the Tropical Utopia Acai, mixed berries, banana, almond milk, topped with granola, blueberry, and bee pollen. Bee pollen? Yes, Bee pollen. Why you ask? A common holistic remedy used worldwide, bee pollen contains 200+ nutrients in its composition with ~40% of that being protein!
Raw Republic’s Home base location is in Aventura with a new North Miami Beach spot. Raw Republic offers cold-pressed juices, detox cleanses, smoothies, raw desserts and vegan grab-and-go bites.
- Ten Fruits: PB Acai Bowl
This Downtown Miami menu is full of fresh pressed juices and blended smoothies. The PB Acai Bowl is packed with organic acai, banana, peanut butter, omega-3 and apple juice topped with hemp granola, banana and raw cacao nibs.
- DIRT: Does it Again
Put simply, the “Acai bowl” kills the acai bowl game. Simple, yet unique, this bowl is blended with almond milk, banana, mixed berries, mango and ½ a bulletproof ball topped with coconut, banana, blueberries house made granola and chia seeds.
So what is a bulletproof ball? Well, it’s made with Bulletproof XCT oil – a natural extract from coconut oil and a nice energy source! Oh, it also has organic protein powder, DIRT house made granola and dark chocolate. YUM!
- Pura Vida: Another SOBE Gem
Signature Acai – Pura Vida’s famous acai bowl made with raw organic Brazilian acai and banana blended into a smooth puree, topped with granola and fresh seasonal fruit.
