How We Started

In 2017, during the peak of Instagram’s food-sharing craze, acai bowls caught the attention of our founder, Kyle. To the founder, the bowls were a work of art with stunning purple bases that make whatever fruit topping stand out.

Seeing how tasty and healthy these bowls looked, the health enthusiasts decided to try them. Unfortunately, after a few tries from different shops, the smoothie bowls were just sugar bombs – unnaturally sweet!

Although healthy, Acai is quite bitter, and most shops resorted to artificial sweeteners to neutralize its taste. But they do it way too much using refined sugar or corn syrup, making them merely another cold slurry in a bowl. But that’s only until Kyle joined the game.

Making the Difference

Being health enthusiasts who stand for honest advertising and real foods, Kyle decided to start his first shop without poisoning everyone with too much sugar. He worked around the bitter acai taste by improving the smoothie base using other fruits.

Acai and pitaya are super nutritious but so are bananas, pineapples, and coconuts. By coming up with more dynamic bases, we’ve not only made healthier concoctions but also reduced the sugar levels in half using naturally sweet fruits!

Today, we have over 15 signature smoothie bowls that everyone loves – tried and tested. At Bonita Bowls, you can finally get a delightful superfood meal that’s all-natural, delicious, and healthy!
