Some Berry Good News
Listen up, lovers of açai bowls. A brand new smoothie bowl joint just opened in Springfield on Friday. Springfield Acai Bowl—located on Republic Road just east of Campbell—serves lovely little bowls of açai smoothie topped with so many fun and tasty ingredients that add texture, color and flavor. And they are named for Caribbean islands, so that tropical vibe is real. We’re excited to try the indulgent-sounding St. Lucia, made with açai berry base with strawberries, raspberries, coconut, chia seeds and Nutella on top. If açai isn’t your thing, they also offer smoothie bowls with several other bases: coconut, dragon fruit, peanut butter, mango, cacao, passion fruit and blue cream. Oh, and a coconut and dragon fruit combo too.
Springfield Açai Bowl joins just a handful of other local spots that serving smoothie and acai bowls, a trending treat that isn’t super-common here just yet. Around Springfield, you can also find them at Abby’s Acai Company (a mobile smoothie bowl joint that you can often find at Farmers Market of the Ozarks), Downtown Health Bar located on Walnut Street, The Press Coffee & Juice Bar in the Brentwood Center
