BY SAN JOSE FOOD BLOG – It’s 3 years later and I am just starting to see Acai gain momentum in the Bay Area. At the helm of this trend is Vitality Bowls
, a franchise offering not just food but a healthy lifestyle. There is a location in Cupertino in the same building as a new apartment complex across from Vallco mall. Parking is plenty here and the space is clean and modern.
The bowls come in Medium and Large sizes. They have a base of acai berries, the VB blend, then other fruits and toppings. The VB Blend contains the following frozen or powdered superfood mix: Mangosteen
, Camu Camu
, Acai, Blueberry & Pomegranate. I linked to Wikipedia pages if you are curious about the fruits. There is no added sugar or preservatives. The bowls take on any flavor and sweetness from the fruits only.
We ordered a medium size of three different types of bowls and had each bowl split into two so we could taste test.
($8.99) Vitality Bowl
– Açaí blended with VB Superfood Blend, Banana, Strawberries & Flax Seed; Topped with Granola, Bananas, Strawberries, Goji Berries & Honey
The Vitality Bowl is the classic and for a good reason. We liked this bowl the best out of the three. The acai blend was naturally sweet and went well with the fresh fruit and granola. Even though this was only half of a medium portion, it’s quite filling with all the toppings.
