ABOUT LONDON’S FIRST PERMANENT ACAI BAR
London’s first superfood juice bar Viva Acai is situated at the Gloucester Arcade, Gloucester Road, London. Acai is Brazil’s famous superfood. It is a unique berry harvested from Amazonian palm trees and has long been a favourite of body beautiful Brazilians. Americans also love this uber healthy berry which has been adopted by the super fit brigade. It gives users a terrific natural energy. Rich in anti-oxidants it has the highest oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) compared to the world’s top super foods such as blackberries, blueberries, and super greens. Nutritionally it is full of amino acids, fibre, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.
The best thing is, everything tastes delicious. No one wants something that is simply good for you if it tastes of medicine. Viva Acai concoctions are oh so drinkable or eatable. Very popular and new to the country is Acai bowls; literally a bowl of Acai rich food. For example one option is a bowl of pure Acai, banana and granola; perfect for an-any time energy snack. Extra superfood ingredients can be chosen from the toppings bar. Everything is packaged with the busy Gloucester Road commuter, rushing to the tube in mind – eat, drink whilst you dash! Also available at Viva Acai is cold pressed juices and coconut water.
For customers who are less strict and like their daily drink sweeter, they can choose a something with added guarana (a healthier version of caffeine) which sweetens and is a great morning kick start. Fitness lovers are offered raw options. “Either way”, says founder Sha Larente “I promise everything on our menu is absolutely delicious and kid friendly.” “What is the point of something that is just healthy but doesn’t taste good?” Sha has two children and one of her missions is to sneak in healthy ingredients whilst they think they are just enjoying a treat.
Viva Acai uses frozen Acai pulp – rather than powdered which provides a better taste and texture and is how it is prepared in Brazil (only ten percent of the grape sized purple fruit can be utilised: the rest is seed).
Britain is ready for Brazil’s energetic super fruit. VIVA ACAI!
We also sell freshly-made cold-pressed juices, bottled daily using the finest organic raw vegetables and fruits, and a selection of superfood smoothies, organic coffee, and herbal teas.
