When you hear the word Acai, you might wonder, “What is that? And how do you even pronounce it?” Well, simply put Acai, pronounced ah-sah-EE, is a purple edible berry from a Central and South American palm tree. The acai berry is rich in antioxidants and acts as an anti-inflammatory, not to mention it’s delicious, so it’s no surprise that Acai Bowls have become such a popular menu item.
