Acai Bowls

Since returning from Brazil I’ve become obsessed with acai bowls (pronounced ‘ahsyee’).  The acai is a berry grown in South America aka as a superfood and full of antioxidants!

In Brazil I’d buy a bowl of acai for £2 but in London most places charge approximately £7 so I decided to learn how to make my own…

Some benefits of acai are as follows;

  • aids weight loss
  • helps digestion
  • has anti-aging effects
  • improves mental function
  • promotes heart health
