Our cafe in Notting Hill is becoming famous for the acai bowls we serve. Acai is one of the most nutritious fruits in the world. We blend ours with one of the Bodyism supplements to increase the protein content in each acai bowl and to make it even more delicious.
Our acai supplier, Rayder, is an activist for preventing deforestation in the Amazon and acai is one of the only no-timber products to come from the rainforest. So, make sure you choose high-quality frozen acai (you can find it in health stores or online) and feel proud that you are helping to save the planet and looking after your body, too. If you don’t have the Bodyism supplements, substitute them for a tablespoon of hemp seeds.
