New Healthy Lifestyle Shop Comes to Southside Anchorage…
Established July 2009, Acai Alaska LLC. brings locally made Acai Bowls created from the dark purple acai berry grown in the palm trees of the Amazon Rainforest… to Southside Anchorage on Dimond Blvd; helping consumers to break the fast, “breakfast,” or provide them with a mid-afternoon snack.
What are Acai Bowls you might wonder?
In a snapshot, the acai (ah-sigh-ee) berry has been around for thousands of years and not until the 1990's, was it introduced to the western world. Acai was found to possess tremendous health properties... it was first used by the tribes of the Amazon jungle as a cure for various ailments. Today people are discovering the long list of benefits this amazing little berry possesses.
We are excited to introduce this healthy alternative that is so delicious it could be dessert, but packs amazing nutritional properties too! Along with your bowl or smoothie, we offer tasty super food topping options, such as: goji berry, bee pollen, raw cacao, dark chocolate covered pomegranate, fresh mango, coconut shavings, flax seed, hemp seed and much more…
Plus, Acai Alaska is proud to join forces with RAW Foodist guru Brendan Van Valkenburgh, from Avante Medical Center, as he will be instructing RAW food workshops at our new location starting in February. In addition, we are pleased to feature some of his specialty items on our menu soon to come! On the same note, Weekly “Insight Nights,” will also highlight local community health experts, sharing with the public their knowledge on living well.
ACAI ALASKA’S STORY: The Acai Bowl’s roots originated in Brazil and traveled across the seas with local surfers, whom chased waves to the Hawaiian Islands. The local surf culture in Hawaii began eating the bowls after surf sessions on the North Shore, for a natural energy boost and it quickly caught on. While living on the islands, we soon discovered our new favorite meal and missed eating our daily bowl; when we sprouted our wings to return to the Last Frontier. Thus, Acai Alaska was born with the dream of bringing this unique nutritional food to Alaskans and sharing our passion for health.
Our doors are now open and we welcome you to join us for your 1st Alaskan Acai Bowl or smoothie at our healthy lifestyle shop! Aloha Team Acai Alaska.
