Acai (say it with us: ah-sah-EE) is a purple berry that comes from an acai palm tree, native to Central and South America. Over the past couple of years, acai bowls have taken the world by storm, becoming prominent menu additions in both trendy and health-driven restaurants everywhere. The highly Instagrammable bowl isn’t just for the sake of photogenic presentation; it also packs significant health benefits that are said to improve your heart, clear up your skin, and aid in weight loss. With the rising temperatures in NYC, acai bowls are our to-go when we’re craving something refreshing and sweet – with zero guilt included.
