what is an açai bowl?

First, say it with us: ahh – sigh – eee

Açai is a plump, dark purple berry harvested from acai palm trees in the rainforests of South America. At BARE, we blend pure, unsweetened açai berry pulp with other fruits, add-ins like our handcrafted almond butter, kale, chia seeds or cacao powder, and our homemade nut milks to create a thick smoothie-like base. We top the base with local granola, fresh fruit, a drizzle of honey, and depending on the bowl – roasted almonds, hemp seeds, bee pollen, or cacao nibs.


what makes us different?

At BARE Bowls, we believe in the power of real, wholesome food. That’s why we never use artificial sweetener, acai sorbet, or fruit juice... not even sweetened acai. We promise to use real foods and to always be bare and transparent about everything we put into each hand-crafted bowl or blend.
