Female Foodie: Banzai Bowl Female Foodie: Banzai Bowl Call me basic, but if I could choose to eat one thing for the rest of my life, it’d be a Banzai Bowl. No question. (I’m still begging them to come to Utah!) Not only is it crave-worthy, but fresh and healthy!

Plus, eating one of these on the Newport coast just adds to the heavenly enjoyment.

Female Foodie: Banzai Bowl The Original Banzai Bowl has a handful of little shops throughout Southern California, creating intricate Acai and Pitaya bowls for all beach lovers to enjoy. What I love most about this place is how big their portion sizes are. They are as big as the waves off the coast. Huge. I can barely fit the cup in both hands.

Female Foodie: Banzai Bowl I had a Banzai Bowl for the first time in Laguna Beach, California and was forever changed. After my friends and I discovered it and tasted our first bowl, we bought one on every single day of the trip. So, as I pulled up to the Newport Pier and saw that they opened a new one, as you imagine, I couldn’t resist.

I had never made that quick of a decision before in my entire life. I jumped out of the car and walked (well ran) towards the new shop.

Female Foodie: Banzai Bowl Female Foodie: Banzai Bowl If you’re like me, you’ll anxiously walk in and realize you want to order one of everything on the menu (which I don’t discourage). I’ve tried a lot of the bowls, trust me, and they’re all great – you can’t go wrong. This time however, I decided to grab a Maui Sunrise. It’s a fresh blend of Acai, coconut milk, pineapple juice, bananas, strawberries, and best of all, mangos.

Added to the top? A hefty delectable amount of granola, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, coconut shreds, and the key – honey. So as I’m booking my next trip to California solely for this mouthwatering bowl of goodness, I hope you’ll do the same. See you soon Banzai Bowls!
