Acai bowls have been in the trend for years, and for good reason. Not only are they very Instagram-friendly (look at all those bright colors!), but they're delicious, sweet, and full of nutrients. Acai (pronounced "ah-sigh-ee") bowls are made of a smoothie-like blend of acai berries, which are rich of antioxidants and nutrients that help prevent arthritis, inflammation, and other ailments, and are usually topped with more nutritious foods such as bananas, blueberries, strawberries, etc.
These refreshing and nutritious bowls can be found at many smoothie and health-conscious cafes around Oahu, but there's one particular one on the windward side of Oahu that has captured my heart, and my appetite - Makai Bowls in Kailua.
Makai Bowls is a small food truck owned and operated by Kaulu. It's been almost a year since Kaulu decided to turn his passion for acai bowls into a business, and over the past year, he's been hard at work perfecting his version of the acai bowl.
He works out of this small green food truck located in the same parking lot as Agnes' Portuguese Bake Shop off of Ho'olai Street in Kailua. You can't miss his lime green truck.
Check out this highly-nutritious spoonful of antioxidants.....
Makai Bowls initially started out at Sandy Beach, and many people do not realize that he has since moved to Kailua (Yelp has yet to update his business page), so come check him out next to Portuguese Bake Shop and look for the green food truck!
