The time of indulgence is upon us: that time of year when we celebrate a little more, taste a little more and toast a little more.
And while there may be a voice in your head saying, “Oh, let’s just let loose until Jan. 1,” there’s no reason you can’t enjoy yourself while fueling your body well.
And that’s where Purify Bowls and Smoothies comes in.
The pumpkin smoothie bowl
The Commerce Street shop is little and full of flavor — with, of course, pure ingredients. Get quality sustenance in a traditional smoothie, or explore their bowls. They’re frequently changing things up to fit with the season, such as their recent pumpkin bowl. The added benefit to a bowl is that you can easily pair it with Night Rider Coffee, which is also housed in Purify as of this year.
While you may see extra deliciousness like Nutella on the top of your bowl, know beneath is full of goodness: the base is typically pureed açaí — a berry hight in antioxidants — and the top of fruit offers plenty of natural sweetness and vitamins.
And you’re getting the true flavors of those ingredients. This isn’t one of those super sweet desserts disguised as a healthy meal. It’s the real deal offering nutrients and tasty bites that feel like a treat without being sugary, and you get that added bonus of the tartness from the acaí.
And if smoothies aren’t your thing, opt for their fresh juices for the vitamin punch without the full-meal feel.
So don’t wait until January to start treating your body well. Sure, indulge at a party some night, but at least start your day fresh with a balanced bowl at Purify.
Purify Bowls and Smoothies is located at 3101 Commerce St., Suite 102, and is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
