Refreshing, tasty and wholesome - smoothie bowls are this Summer's ultimate treat. If you are really lucky, you will find yourself enjoying a supercharged Acai smoothie bowl before you get your weekend rolling.
What's in a smoothie bowl?
Each smoothie bowl is different, but all have a focus on fresh, seasonal fruits. If you've never had one, imagine a thick icy cold smoothie, topped with a bit of granola crunch, some nuts, and freshly sliced fruit.
You may have seen Acai bowls advertised and have just no idea what it is. Acai, pronounced Ah-Sigh-ee, is a berry fruit superfood from South America that is packed full of antioxidants. Acai berries give the smoothie bowl a vibrant purple-red colour and is the perfect base for a smoothie bowl
