We're passionate about Açaí
Açaí is a dark purple super fruit grown in the Amazon Rain Forest. It was only a few years ago that the açaí bowls and smoothies made their way from the Amazonian states of Brazil to other southern parts of the country, such as the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, where it's become the meal of choice among many surfers and athletes. Açaí then began to gain worldwide attention and recognition due to the large amount of tourists walking along the beaches of Rio and its healthy nutrients.
As a serious business that cares for our customer's well-being, our mission at Kitanda is to provide you with the best of this nutrition-packed fruit by serving you delicious açaí bowls and smoothies made with whole organic pulp. We distinguish ourselves by our commitment to making our bowls the original and authentic way, providing our customers with the real experience of this dish.
From the heart of the Brazilian Amazon
Bringing the heart of the Brazilian Amazon to you! (Portuguese pronunciation- Ah-sah-EE)
Açaí is a nutrient packed super fruit that comes directly from the heart of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. Besides its delicious and unique taste, acai is extraordinarily packed with healthy nutrients capable of energizing and boosting the immune and metabolic function of the body.
(Açaí na tigela)
Acai Bowl is a thick smoothie blended with frozen mashed acai berry with the addition of guarana syrup (another Amazonian berry) in a bowl, commonly topped with granola and other mixes, such as fruits. It is the most typical way to consume acai.
Kitanda's açaí bowls are developed by our family with the commitment to keep it as traditional and original as possible.
It's a great breakfast, lunch, pre or post-workout!
At Kitanda, we call this powerful berry the super of all super fruits due to its rich content of antioxidants; which is more than what is found in cranberry, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry or blueberry. In addition, a long list of rich nutrients such as healthy omegas, amino acids, fiber, vitamins, and minerals are also found in this delicious berry.
We'd like to invite you to explore Kitanda's Açaí bowls and smoothies and help us spread the word about this remarkable berry!
