The Story of the ACAI BOWL: The roots of the Acai Bowl originate in Brazil with the Jiu-Jitsu Fighters and Brazilian surfers that consume the bowls for their natural vitalizing energy. The surfers chased the waves to Hawaii and the bowls quickly caught on with surfers on the North Shore, where it has become routine to eat a bowls after surf sessions, for a natural energy boost and satisfy hunger.
While living on the islands, CJ & Julia von Imhof discovered Acai Bowls and got hooked. Mike & Sharlene Wheeler soon fell in love with this healthy superfood as well and the two couples teamed up to bring Acai bowls and health to Anchorage locals. Acai Alaska was born July 2009 with the dream of bringing this unique nutritional food to Alaskans and sharing a passion for health.
Acai Alaska is now in the Last Frontier bringing the bowls to Alaskans, to enjoy the health and vitality of the Amazon across Anchorage and at our little healthy lifestyle shop on Dimond Blvd.
Our Acai comes to us organic frozen, we then blend it with a mix of rich dark colored berries, plus strawberry and banana for locals to enjoy. In addition, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors or dairy in our product.
