Before going to Koko Crater Botanical Gardens, the bf and I decided to start our day off with a nice refreshing breakfast at Jewel or Juice – famous for their acai bowls. The place itself is a pretty small little shop, and when we walked in, it looked like a jewelry store with a smoothie stand in the middle of it – hence, the name “Jewel or Juice”. We ordered a large deluxe acai bowl to split between the two of us – it consists of acai berry blended with apple juice, strawberry, and banana, topped with organic granola, sliced bananas, strawberries, blueberries, goji berries, and honey.
The acai blend is very thick – almost the consistency of sorbet, and the whole combo basically is reminiscent of Pinkberry – but packed with antioxidants and energy! A great breakfast right before a trek through a hot and dry desert botanical garden.
