Why Acai Bowls Can Be Such A Big Deal

Acai isn't new to the world of healthy eating, but it is starting to steal the show when it comes to consuming healthy fats.


You’ve likely heard about the healthy fats in avocados and nuts, which continue to be plentiful on menus and in markets. But there’s a focus on new sources, like acai, which is showing up in smoothies and eponymously named fruit bowls.

These berries are a natural source of omega-3s; the company Sambazon offers a range of products, including a vegan sorbet that tastes thick and rich because of naturally occurring fats. Full-fat dairy is also on the rise, and Organic Valley is one of the leaders. Try the Grassmilk Yogurt to really experience the difference—simply stir in the cream on top.
