Why Acai Bowls Can Be Such A Big Deal

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.
