Vegan Fine Foods has one of the largest açaí bowls that can be ordered, off-menu, from Chef Jonny. They can cost $18 each or more and can easily feed two-three people. The one Chef Jonny made for me contained frozen açaí, red and white dragon fruit, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, goji berries, dark chocolate, dried mulberries, chocolate chips, mango, shredded coconut, buried granola, and an edible orchid flower.

Perk Coffee House was the first place I ate an açaí bowl, back in July 2018. Their bowl contained blueberries, strawberries, grated coconut, frozen açaí, pineapple, hemp seeds, flax seeds, bananas, honey, and granola ($8.00). I paid $1.50 extra for some almond butter.

Ital Bowls Food truck, in Stuart, was the most recent location that I tried an açaí bowl. Their, "The Ital Bowl," had an unexpected ingredient--fresh avocado. It also contained organic frozen açaí, bananas, blueberries, kiwi fruit, honey, granola, and vegan protein powder ($10). I replaced the honey with agave syrup ($0.50 more), added shredded coconut ($0.75 more) and goji berries ($1.00 more).
Superfoods help slow down the affects of aging. And so Açaí bowls are basically a healthy, adult form, of an ice cream sundae with limitless combinations.
