Welltopia -- Hollywood
If you read my Pie Hole blog post, you know I do not like driving to Hollywood. But I have been seeing these beautiful wellness bowls from Welltopia on Instagram for months and decided it was finally time to brave the tourists and try them.
I had a surprisingly easy time finding parking in the middle of a Monday. Try one of the side streets before committing to the overpriced garage.
Welltopia’s shop is super cute and spacious. Not a ton of seating, but considering a lot of people get their bowls to go, you shouldn’t have a problem getting a table. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They explained right away that these are not the acai bowls we have become accustomed to. Many places make their bowls with an acai sorbet. That means the bowls aren’t as healthy, since you are basically eating ice cream. Welltopia’s bowls aren't as sweet because they are made from entirely natural ingredients and created with their in house almond milk.
I ordered the Daily Energy Bowl and my friend got the Tropical Berry Bowl. The Daily Energy Bowl’s base is made with banana, bee pollen, apple, organic goji berries, organic chia seeds, and organic hemp milk. It was topped with strawberries, banana, blackberries, chia seeds, hemp granola, and shredded coconut. The Tropical Berry Bowl had a base of strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, and organic almond milk. It was topped with strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, almond slices, hemp granola, and shredded coconut.
They were both delicious. Sure they aren't as sweet as other bowls I’ve tasted, but they are by no means bitter or bland. The fruit itself is naturally sweet anyway. And you can get a honeycomb on top, which makes the bowl sweeter, too. There was a good amount of cut up fruit on top, which I always love.
Thank you so much, Welltopia, for having me in! I loved every bite and will surely be back.
