La Vida Vegan: Green Acai Bowl from Seaside Smoothie & Juice Bar


Published:

Seaside Smoothie & Juice Bar's Green Acai Bowl

The Dish: Green acai bowl, blended with apple juice, banana, and kale, topped with strawberries, kiwi, coconut, and granola

The Spot: Seaside Smoothie & Juice Bar, 5509 La Jolla Boulevard, Bird Rock

The Scene: Breakfast by the beach is a go-to for our family once the summer months hit. Seaside Smoothie & Juice Bar is a casual corner spot with both indoor and outdoor seating. It’s attached to Bird Rock Surf Shop, so you can look around the store for beach apparel and surf gear while you wait.

Recipe for Success: I subbed almond milk for apple juice, since the sugar in the acai and toppings is already enough. At first sight, I missed the sliced bananas that usually accompany acai bowls, but after the first taste, I realized that the strawberry-kiwi-coconut combo gives it a nice tropical twist. Altogether, the bowl does not taste overly sweet, making it a healthy, island-inspired alternative to the traditional acai bowl.
