This post is a little short and sweet, but it’s not one to be missed. On the Bridges Road Trip 2016, we passed through Santa Barbara in the morning and stopped for some brekkie. And there was one place Ming had on her mind. Backyard bowls.
Can’t say no to a good acai bowl!
It was a pretty popular place. We got there early, and as we waited for our bowls, more and more people popped in to get their morning acai fix. I think some might have also pre-ordered somehow since they appeared out of nowhere!
There was a coffee shop next door where we nipped in to get some coffees – I think they work with the acai place since they let us use their toilets (you gotta go when you can whilst you’re road tripping).
Have you ever seen anything so glorious to start a morning? Hello fuel to put up with a car full of the same people for hours on end. Just kidding I LOVE YOU FAMILY IF YOU ARE READING.
But not kidding about these bowls.
My mum got the Backyard Bowl – acai, banana, strawberries, hemp milk, topped with granola, banana, fresh berries, goji berries, bee pollen and honey.
I opted for the Island Bowl – Banana, mango, pineapple juice, coconut milk, topped with granola, banana, fresh berries, coconut shavings and honey.
Ming went for the Berry Bowl – Acai, banana, strawberries, apple juice, topped with granola, banana, fresh berries, goji berries and honey.
On with the road trip!
