I finished my last class of university yesterday and today (Friday) was my first day as a free woman. I decided to explore the Mooloolaba Esplanade with a friend and usually, I have no clue what is on offer because I hardly ever get down to the tourist-infused area.
My friend suggested we start off getting a cold brew coffee. I absolutely love cold coffee! And this one especially because it has coconut milk in it and it really hits the spot on a hot day.
Then, we ventured over to Acai Brothers for a bowl of something yummy. I’m always seeing their Acai bowls posted on social media sites, and always vowed to get one. Of course, I never actually got around to it … until today!
I scanned the menu, mesmerised at the options and the ingredients. If you’re anything like me, and you count your calories (IIFYM) especially, then this is the place for you.
For starters, it’s a cute little shop hidden away off the beach, with wonderful staff and friendly smiles. Not to mention the cute furry friend who sits and waits for a pat. I’ll be honest, I stayed longer just to pet the puppy.
The menu is amazing and caters for everyone’s taste buds; I went straight for the base that had the word Nutella in it. I may or may not have an addiction to Nutella. It doesn’t actually have Nutella in it, but the Cacao powder makes up for the chocolatey goodness, so I’d like to think I tricked my brain into thinking it has something naughty.
Definitely have a quick squiz at the menu before hand, because you’ll be stuck with a tough decision when you arrive – just like I did.
Once I finished my Acai bowl, I was lost for words, and not because I was full but because I didn’t feel bloated or sick. I’ve never experienced a full feeling without feeling gross like I overate or something.
If you’re in comp season and you’re following the IIFYM diet, then this is a super-healthy but satisfying (you feel like you’re eating something deliciously naughty) meal.
And while I’m writing this, I’m already craving another Raw Nutella Bowl.
