(The Triangle Trend) — There’s nothing quite like a smoothie to kick-start your morning or renew you after a workout. But often you order a smoothie that’s just too runny or not satisfying. That’s where smoothie bowls and açai bowls come in. They are thick, large servings of blended fruits and veggies topped with nutritious seeds, nut butters, granolas, and superfoods. Fortunately, their popularity is quickly growing, making them more available in the Cary area. Here are the top thirteen spots in Cary to get your smoothie bowl fix, and maybe a little something extra, too.
