One of the latest superfoods sweeping the nation, acai (ah-sigh-ee), is a powerful berry that contains fiber and antioxidants, which may help protect cells from damaging free radicals. Blend acai with milk, frozen fruit, and nut butters, and you’ll get a vibrant bowl filled with nutrients. The local acai scene is heating up, with an increasing amount of cafés and juice bars offering their version of the famous bowl. Get your Instagram filters ready and prepare to share some major (healthy) food porn. Below, 12 places where you can find acai bowls in town.
