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 all over Brazil, but mainly in Pará, Rio de Janeiro, Florianópolis, São Paulo, Goiás 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] The preparation differs from region to region, and tapioca is a common topping in the North of the country, but not in the South.
