At ActivAte Acai Bowls & Smoothie Cafe, you’ll find mostly organic ingredients including all of the fresh fruit, nut butters, coconut milk, and there amazing hemp granola. The staff was unable to confirm whether the acai and pitaya are organic, however, they are non-GMO and are sweetened without sugar. The coffee, bread, almond milk, oat milk, and Nutella are not organic. ActivAte buys local when available and offers many vegan and gluten free choices. All of the ingredients in the cold pressed juices and smoothies are organic. The cold pressed juice is made in house. The acai and pitaya are scooped, not fresh blended.
ActivAte serves Acai and Pitaya Bowls, Veggie and Fruit Smoothies, Acai and Pitaya Cones, Cold Brew Coffee, Cappuccino, Espresso, and Dessert Toasts.
What I Ordered
I ordered a customized Grow-Your-Own-Bowl with acai. Toppings of choice included coconut oil, coconut flakes, pineapple, strawberries, blackberries, hemp granola, and finished with an almond butter drizzle. The acai bowl was packed with flavor and fresh fruit resulting in a pretty darn good acai bowl, yep! And I must say, the hemp granola was the best gluten free granola I’ve tasted. With just the right amount of crunch and a mild flavor, the granola is a treat on its own.
