Hawaiian Acai Bowl

Acai is a small grape-like berry harvested from acai palm trees. These trees can be found in the rainforests of South America. It is listed as a so-called superfood. It contains high quantities of antioxidants, fiber and healthy fats. We were introduced to acai in Hawaii at the local smoothie bar. It is perfect for a breakfast fruit bowl. Enjoy!
