Yas and Al Wahda Malls.
🌟🌟Hidden gem alert, Besties!🌟
Rachael and I pulled on our stretchy pants this week and headed over to AçaiXpress at Yas Mall to try some of their lovely healthy goodies. AçaiXpress bring their own unique take on healthy eating to Abu Dhabi, with a range of products using anti-oxidant packed açai berry on offer, many of which are also gluten-free.
We started out with some fresh juices - freshly squeezed orange juice and an amazing green juice, packed with kale, kiwi, lime and fresh mint. Perfect for a vitamin blast at any time of day.
There's also a range of açai berry indulgence pots, which layer up fruity frozen açai goodness with other yummy treats like fresh fruit, banana, cereals, granola, Nutella and even M&Ms for the kiddies. The Nutella one was soooooo scrumptious and comes with a wholehearted Best Bites recommendation, but you can always make your own combo! If this doesn't blow your dress up, then we suggest you have a look at the beautiful açai and berry smoothie bowls, packed with healthy nuts, berries and seeds for a complete meal, or try the fruit, yoghurt and granola pots.
Maybe you're more a 'savoury' person - don't worry, they got you covered too 😊 We enjoyed the gluten-free tapioca crepe filled with chicken and vegetables, and if you're looking for something more nutritious for yourself while the kids grab their burger meals, take a look at the Meal Deal which is superb value at 35dhs as it includes a crepe AND a freshly made juice. And if the kids pester you for an ice cream afterwards, AçaiXpress now offer a healthier frozen yoghurt and açai swirl ice cream, which is a great way of sneaking in a few extra vitamins if you ask me 😊
Last but not least, we have to tell you about the tapioca buns. Ohhhhh the buns. A perfect tiny treat with an espresso. Little fluffy balls....gluten free, and they'll even add Nutella or cheese as an extra if you ask! I'm afraid we ate the Nutella-filled deliciousness all up🙊
I saved the best news until last, because now you can go try açai for yourself, with a generous 20% discount off the entire range at Yas Mall Food Court (full range) or Al Wahda Mall 1st Floor (juices and açai pots only).
