CARROT EXPRESS MIAMI
The Carrot Express Paradise Bowls has a creamy texture that’s definitely the signature of a good bowl. Garnished with seasonal fruit, one of our favorite elements of the Carrot Express bowl is the roasted almond granola, a nutty, crunchy concoction with a savory edge that perfectly compliments the sweetness of the berries. Topped with the traditional sprinkle of shaved coconut flake, the Carrot Express acai is rich and satisfying with a salty-sweet quality that would be dangerous in a dessert, but somehow manages to seem positively healthful when paired with antioxidant-rich acai.

Rio Acai Bowl
This one definitely captures the tropical flavor of an authentic acai bowl with a berry base blended with banana to give the acai an even creamier, thicker texture. Garnished with even more banana and a parade of tropical fruits, the whole thing is finished with a punch of texture from granola and a side of coconut shreds for dressing as you choose. Among the more classic choices on this list, the Rio Acai Bowl is everything a good açaí bowl should be: refreshing, satisfying, and completely delicious.
