These simple, colorful meals are just as pleasing to the eye as they are to the stomach. If you want to try this healthy food trend in Orlando, there are many restaurants where you can find the delicious creations. Check out our guide below to learn about some of the most fantastic food bowls in Orlando and where to find them.

Orlando’s Best Acaí Bowls

Even if you haven’t tried acai bowls, you’ve likely seen pictures of them online or being made in your favorite juice bar or smoothie shop. Acai berries are reddish-purple fruits about an inch around that grow on acai palm trees found in Central and South American rainforests. This super fruit promotes a healthy heart, boosts energy, aids in digestion, and improves your immune system. It’s no wonder this superfood is a favorite of many people.

Acai first became popular in the United States in the early 2000s when two brothers from Southern California named Ryan and Jeremy Black, and their friend Edmund Nichols began exporting it from Brazil. Since then, acai has made its way into all sorts of food and juice products found in stores and restaurants here in Orlando.

Whether you prefer acai bowls as a snack, for breakfast, or as a healthy dessert option, you can find them at these local spots:
