1. Acai Bowl - The Slider Corner
Although it's listed as one of their desserts we reckon that the Acai Bowl would make a pretty fine and fruity breakfast too. It's a great big bowlful of home-made granola that's full of good things along with fruity acai purée and sliced banana liberally dribbled with sweet, sweet honey. It all adds up to a power-packed start to the day from The Slider Corner that's going to leave you positively bursting with get-up-and-go.
2. The Loved One - Acai Spot
From the very first time you try The Loved One you'll understand perfectly just why Acai Spot have given it this name. Once again, it features a nutty and crunchy granola with the addition of a whole host of fruits including blueberries and strawberries. The acai is blended with banana and the whole delicious dish is served with Greek-style yoghurt.
3. The Sweet Acai - Acai Brazil
The very best berries come from deep in the Amazonian jungle so we had to include Acai Brazil in our list. Mango joins acai and banana to create a true treat with a mere sprinkling of granola on top. So get tropical and have a dose of this top, tasty acai bowl to kick-start your day.
4. Acai Avocado Thunder Smoothie - Brothaus
They're just as famous for their smoothies down at Brothaus as they are for their amazing German cuisine and this is one of the real stars of the show. Acai powder is added to avocado, honey, dates and almond milk to create a true breakfast of champions.
5. Acai Smoothie - Freshii
For their version of the smoothie, Freshii have plucked the very best organic acai berries from South America and blended them with strawberries, blueberries, banana and almond milk. Then, for an extra burst of energy, there's also a shot of whey protein to supercharge your day.
6. Acai Super Smoothie Bowl - Be Super Natural Kitchen
It all comes together in one amazing combination in the Be Super Natural Kitchen's Super Smoothie Bowl.
