In my journey of discovering the vegan lifestyle there are “cult favorites” I am bound to run into. You would expect for me to love them, as it seems everyone else does. But this has not been the case for most of them; who knows maybe I’m just the only honest person around here?
There is an organic juice bar in my area called Sip. They have a huge menu of juices, smoothies, meals, and acai bowls. Lucky me it is a two minute drive from my work! One morning I decided to treat myself and pay $18.00 for a juice and acai bowl, crazy, I know. The juice was amazing. But the acai bowl was less than desirable.
This is acai bowl #2 which is: Pure unsweetened Brazilian acai, coconut milk, banana, date & topped with coconut and Jenergy granola. Sounds great right?
Well it was like I was spooning a smoothie into my mouth, or worse like I was eating baby food! Why was I eating a smoothie with a spoon? Where was my straw? These were the thoughts going through my head, it was just a smoothie in a bowl with fresh fruit and too little granola. Don’t get my wrong, it tasted delightful especially when I was able to get the little chunks of granola in with each bite. It was just a very weird sensation.
Would I get it again? Maybe, I would like to make my own with a large amount of granola and even more fresh fruit. I think that would be the key to making this something I will love.
Final thoughts: I would always suggest you try everything yourself and make your own choices! But I would suggest getting extra yummies added into your acai bowl so it’s not the consistency of baby food.
