Açaí Bowls

Açaí Bowls have become the newest hip thing. We have a lot of places here in Arizona that serve them. I use Sambazon frozen Açaí to make my Açaí Bowls. I usually find it at Sprouts or Whole Foods. Açaí is a berry that grows on a species of palm trees in South America that contains powerful antioxidants and healthy omegas. Here’s the recipe found on the back of the Sambazon package for a traditional bowl.

2 Sambazon Original Smoothie Packs

1/2 Banana

Dash of Lime Juice

1/8 c Apple Juice

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Scoop into a bowl and top with granola and banana slices.

“One Cup at a Time”

I was introduced to a killer coffee shop this morning on my way to church in Castro. My friend that I’m visiting says this place is the best coffee she has ever had. Phil Jaber founded Philz Coffee in 2003. He spent years experimenting with various coffee beans from around the world to create over 30 different unique blends. He converted his corner grocery store into his first coffeeshop and now has locations all over the San Francisco area. Each drink is custom made in front of you and finished off with their signature mint leave. One thing is unique is that they don’t do lattes or cappuccinos. I ordered their very popular Mint Mojito Iced Coffee and it was everything my friend said it was – amazing! Seriously, if you are in the SF area, make sure you stop in for this “cup of love”.
