Benson’s Smoothies and Acai Bowls is a new restaurant in downtown Columbia. It has only been open for a few months, but they are already serving up some of the best smoothies and acai bowls in town! I visited Benson’s on a recent trip back home, hoping to get my first taste of this unique cuisine.
The Idea of a smoothie and acai bowl shop
Smoothie and Acai Bowl Joint is a new business that opened in Los Angeles last year. It’s a smoothie shop with acai bowls as its main attraction, but what makes it so special?
A good first question to ask yourself is: “Why should I go here?” The answer lies in their unique approach to the smoothie industry. You see, there are tons of places where you can get delicious drinks made with fruits like strawberries or bananas. We want something more than just juice. We want something healthy and nutritious that will help us stay healthy by providing the vitamins and minerals our bodies need every day (and night).
Thick, pureed bowls of fruit, vegetables, and in some cases protein powder
Acai bowls are made from acai fruit. The consistency of these smoothies can be thick or thin, depending on how many add-ons you want to add. You may want to add some protein powder and other ingredients for added flavor and nutrition.
Acai bowls are often served with granola, nuts, or seeds on top (like almond butter). They also usually have some sort of cold toppings like yogurt, granola, or fruit slices on them as well!
Acai bowls may not be for everybody
Acai bowls are a healthy alternative to other desserts. They’re made from acai berries, which are high in antioxidants and packed with nutrients. You can mix them up with any fruit or vegetable you like, or even add on some toppings like granola or coconut flakes!
Benson’s Smoothies and Acai Bowls
Benson’s Smoothies and Acai Bowls are brand new to downtown Columbia. The menu consists of over 100 items and they offer a variety of drinks, smoothies, acai bowls, salads, and more!
A few things you should know before heading down:
- Their hours are limited – Monday-Friday 8 am-6 pm; Saturday 8 am-4 pm with extended hours on Sunday 10 am – 5 pm (closed for lunch).
- They have specials every day including $5 smoothies from Monday through Friday during Happy Hour from 3 PM – 6 PM
- Their menu changes daily depending on what ingredients are available at the time so check back often! If something catches your eye on their website order ahead of time so that when it’s gone don’t miss out on an opportunity because there won’t be another chance later down the line!”
Have you tired of the usual fare
If you’re looking for something different than what you typically see on the menu at other restaurants around town, try stopping by. Benson’s is a new addition to the downtown Columbia restaurant scene and serves up some of the most unique acai bowls in town.
When I first walked into Benson’s, I was immediately greeted by friendly staff who were eager to help me decide which poke acai bowl would be right for me and my fiance. The menu has plenty of options ranging from vegan and vegetarian options like avocado toast or yogurt-based bowls to non-vegan ones such as berry cheesecake or churro pancakes with blueberries and coconut flakes! But if you want something more traditional (or maybe even healthier). There are also salads available if that sounds better suited to your diet preferences!
One thing I really appreciated about this place was how clean everything looked so far. No food debris here! You won’t find any random pieces lying around either because everything comes neatly packaged together after being made fresh inside their kitchen”.
