Project Acai - Antioxidant Goodness

Project Acai (pronounced as "ah-sigh-ee") is a newly opened chic cafe, tucked in the bustling street of Holland V, specializing in desserts made from a berry that is touted to be richer in antioxidants than cranberries, raspberries, strawberries and even blueberries. Project Acai Cafè prides itself for serving organic Sambazon Acai, together with only the freshest fruits and ingredients.

It's mainstay, the Acai bowl, comes in the "Handy", "Medium" or "Large" sizes, the Acai mixture is blended with granola and topped with a variety of fruits, goji berries and chia seeds. My favourite toppings is the desiccated coconut shavings - it provides a crispy texture and crunch to each bite.

Fresh Fruits and Garnishes

The preparation of our order took about 5-7 minutes. It's staff takes extreme care in making the dessert as much of a visual treat as it is for the taste buds. The Acai blend at the bottom has a slight tartness and light sweetness. Quite similar in taste to a partially ripe blueberry, yet with a tinge of bitter after taste. When mixed and eaten with the fresh fruits, coconut strips and garnishing, each bite is surprisingly refreshing! 

For the health conscious, most conventional desserts are often out of bounds due to the obscene amounts of refined sugar that goes into making it. Project Açaí creates a beautiful, unique and healthy dessert, allowing dessert lovers to enjoy without having to worry about unnecessary calories and refined sugars.

Note: They do provide take-away the Acai blend in powder packs for your own home made smoothies.
