A health food cafe specializing in acai bowls, smoothies, salads and wraps is celebrating its fourth anniversary in Omaha.

Vitality Bowls has two local locations: 1922 S. 67th St. in Aksarben Village and 2835 S. 170th Plaza in Shops of Legacy.

The Aksarben Village cafe will mark the occasion with an event from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday. Guests can try out an “acai flight” including samples of its Vitality, Dragon, Green and Nutty Bowls.

Acai bowls originated in Brazil and are made from acai berries and additional fruits, then topped with ingredients such as seeds, nuts or granola.

There are currently 129 Vitality Bowl locations in the United States. They pride themselves on offering foods that are packed with antioxidants and have high nutritional values.

“The community has welcomed us with open arms ever since we opened our doors,” said Katie DeSantis, owner of Vitality Bowls Omaha. “And we’ve strived to re-create that same warm and inviting atmosphere in our cafes since day one.”
