I’ve never eaten anything for breakfast that is called a “acai bowl”, and was previously only aware of more savory lunch-type bowls, not ones containing everything from granola to spinach. Thus, I was hesitant, but also ordered the highly recommended Green Monster. As we waited, we got to watch as our delicious monsters were being made with great care and what could almost be described as love, in separate Vitamix blenders. The bowl was absolutely incredible – flavourful, healthy, crunchy, smooth, fruity, lots of greens. No complaints and can’t wait to try another one.
We each added a scoop of protein powder, to fill up those post-barre bellies, and noted another great thing about Union Juice — they use Biosteel! Biosteel is my personal favorite protein powder (and a new favorite of the NFL!), as it is sweetened solely with Stevia, is low carb and tastes, quite frankly, amazing. I use it daily in protein shakes, oatmeal and waffles. – Eme
