Blue Bowl is different from any other smoothie shop because of its Chipotle-like, build-your-own concept, where you’re guided through the steps of creating a masterpiece bowl. The possibilities are literally limitless because of the unlimited toppings that come with each bowl! We’re pretty stoked about the silky consistency of their acai base and the variety of delicious base options to choose from: pitayamatcha and activated coconut.
