Dining Guide | Nine Noteworthy Acai Bowls in Scottsdale

Posted on: March 6th, 2018 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

For years smoothies and protein shakes have been a staple of a healthy way of eating, providing a bit of sweet from the fruit and a refreshing blast thanks to herbs and ice. For those looking to shake up their morning routines, acai bowls (pronounced ah-sah-EE) put a flavorful spin on the traditional smoothie. The acai berry provides a very specific taste; a combination of blueberries, strawberries and a hint of chocolate. Filled with antioxidants, acai bowls are a great alternative to your go to breakfast of yogurt and granola. If you’re wanting to try out this breakfast treat that gives more indulgence vibes than healthy ones, we’ve gathered some of Scottsdale’s stand outs.
