Açaí na tigela ("açaí in the bowl") is a typical Brazilian dish made of frozen and mashed açaí palm fruit from the Amazonian region. Its preparation in Brazilian southern and northeastern is different from how it is prepared in the Amazonian region. It is served like a smoothie in a bowl or in a glass,[1] is commonly topped with granola, banana, and mixed with other fruits, with the addition of guaraná syrup.[2] Açaí na tigela is popular in Rio de Janeiro, Florianópolis, São Paulo and also along northeastern coast, where it is sold in most kiosks lining the beach promenade as well as in corner juice bars throughout the cities.[3]
