What is an Acai Bowl?

An Acai Bowl is a dish whose main ingredient is pureed Acai Berry. Additional ingredients can include almost anything, but typically they are loaded up with granola 2nd to give it crunch (as the Acai Bowl really grew as a variation of the granola Bowl).  Then Other fruits, protein powder, and healthy seeds and grains. So an acai bowl is basically a really thick smoothie that’s been topped with Granola then sprinkled with goodies to add to the taste and/or nutrient value. Acai Berry is a superfood, a South American fruit from the Amazon regions. However its widely available in Australia now as a frozen pulp. Many cafes serve the pulp in an Acai Bowl, but you can create your own Acai Bowl with the organic Acai Berry powder available through Boost Nutrients and Opera Foods.

What is a Granola Bowl?

Well I hardly need to mention this, except to say that modern humans have turned their classic old fashioned cereal breakfast on it head in the last 20 years. Gone are the days of cheap boxed sugared-up cereals served just with dairy milk.  A modern healthy cereal breakfast instead starts with a gourmet granola that is soundly based on Low GI ingredients, healthy seeds and nuts etc, like any of the range from Australian hand made gourmet granola pioneers Plum Foods. Almond milk is widely available and often the choice of milk for those who prefer non dairy. Otherwise a big dollop of yogurt or coconut cream to make it soft and creamy and topped with fresh fruit to sweeten it up. Because a good granola does not have added sugar.  A modern granola bowl often also contains similar nutritional toppings to a smoothie or Acai bowl.

What is a Smoothie?

A smoothie (sometimes  spelled smoothy) is a thick blended beverage with milk shake like consistency, normally pureed in a blender containing fruits and/or vegetables. Sometimes with an added liquid such as fruit juice, vegetable juice, milk, or even yogurt.
Without the added liquids a smoothie is often much thicker and when your eating a thicker smoothie it is practical to use a spoon and a bowl. So that’s a Smoothie Bowl. Now, when you have a nice bowl of nutrients what do you want to add to it for a satisfying crunch that’s healthy for you? A great gourmet granola of course . So the thing that is usually common to most of the above three bowls is a healthy gourmet granola.
