Get your morning superfood fix the tasty way

Undoubtedly one of the biggest trends to come out of the recent superfood craze, the acai bowl has taken the Gold Coast by storm. What exactly is an acai bowl, you ask? It's basically a really nutritious smoothie topped with oatmeal or granola and range of fruit - including the Brazilian acai berry which is heralded for its many health benefits. This healthy treat looks kind of like ice-cream and even tastes similar, but it's good for you and is a great way to start the day. Nothing goes together like a morning run along a beach complemented by a well-presented acai bowl. So stop settling for soggy Weet-Bix and head to one these Gold Coast cafes for a delicious breakfast option.

While many Gold Coast cafes claim to serve great tasting acai bowls, it’s not always the case. To make your search even easier, we’ve found three great cafes that serve up an amazing acai bowl.

Located just a short stroll from the beach in Burleigh, start your day with a walk down the sun-drenched esplanade followed by a nutritious acai bowl. Inspired by the Paleo diet, everything in this thriving cafe is 100 per cent Paleo (a diet based on the food our caveman ancestors would eat, such as meat, nuts and berries) and 100 per cent gluten free. What makes the Paleo Cafe so unique is that they offer a range of superfood and protein extras to go with your acai bowl. So start with acai berries blended with banana, apple and raspberries topped with granola, then choose to add up to 10 different superfoods including: raw cacao, chia seeds, coconut oil, turmeric and more. If you want, you can even order a super smoothie and have the superfoods added to those instead. If your friends are tagging along and feel like something more wholesome, there’s a range of caveman-style bacon and egg options to satisfy their cravings. When it comes to acai bowls or getting your superfood fix, you really can’t look past the Paleo Cafe.
