Quick bliss! We’re delicious and good for you too

Quick Bliss

Welcome to the Quick Bliss Acai & Bagel Bar, where we serve a delicious menu of Acai, bagels, smoothies, and other healthy foods.

 

What is Acai?

Pronounced “ah-sigh-ee,” acai berries come from the Amazon. The acai palm tree, native to tropical Central and South America, produces a deep purple fruit that has long been a part of the diet of indigenous peoples of the Amazon region. It’s been nicknamed ‘purple gold’ in Western countries because of its health properties.

 

The berries are best eaten fresh and unavailable outside where they are grown. Typically they’re exported as frozen fruit puree, dried powder, or pressed juice. These processes pack in all the nutrients… Plus, how we get Acai in Australia makes it an excellent base or addition for many delicious recipes.

 

Acai has an earthy taste often described as a cross between blackberries and unsweetened chocolate … here at Quick Bliss Acai & Bagel Bar, we’re always experimenting with new ways to use it!

 

So, so good for you

Acai has some pretty amazing health benefits. It is low in fat and high in fibre, which is excellent for the digestive system – keeping it clean and functioning effectively.

 

Acai also contains high amounts of Oleic (Omega 9), an essential fatty acid that helps lower bad cholesterol and promotes good cholesterol. Acai also contains Linoleic (Omega 6), another essential fatty acid that helps the optimal function of the brain and eyes. It also boosts your sexual energy while helping your body absorb life-essential vitamins such as A, E, D, and K. But wait … there’s more!

 

With a high concentration of antioxidants, Acai helps to keep your skin looking good too. Who doesn’t want reduced wrinkles and encourage a healthy glow? Other research suggests that Acai could also have positive benefits in helping arthritis.

 

Vitality, energy, and better overall health

Adding a daily dose of Acai is a great way to contribute to your diet if you want more vitality, energy, and better overall health. It’s not called a ‘superfood’ for nothing! And while we love it – and we know you will too – you’ll get the most benefits from Acai when you consume it as part of a healthy, varied, and balanced diet, combined with regular exercise or activities that keep your body moving.

 

Bagels, smoothies, acai bowls, and more …

Our menu makes it easy to find a great way to add a regular dose of Acai to your diet. We have a range of Bagels, Smoothies, acai bowls, and other healthy food favourites. So whether you’re after a quick breakfast on the go, lunch, or just a snack, stop in and see our daily specials and offerings or our current staff favourites. We’re convinced that soon – like many of our customers – we’ll become a part of your routine.
