Bowl of Heaven Introduces Newest Star in its Menu Line Up

Bowl of Heaven adds Dragon fruit and Prickly Pear to Growing List of Super-Food Ingredients

December 19, 2013 // // Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – Bowl of Heaven is bringing on two new amazing super fruits – Pitaya or ‘Dragon’ fruit from Nicaragua and Prickly Pear, both uniquely from cacti - to be rolled out with the introduction of the Paradise Bowl to the menu.

When it comes to super fruits no one does more research into blending to perfection than Bowl Of Heaven.

Pitaya is a fruit that was first discovered in Central America and has traveled to all corners of the globe. Early missionaries brought it to Asia where it has since been renamed and is more commonly known as Dragon Fruit. This amazing ingredient is famously known as a natural fiber-rich digestive aid that is packed with antioxidants and Omega-3s but low in sugar. It is also a good source of Vitamin C, calcium and magnesium. Bowl of Heaven’s suppliers will be sourcing theirs directly from Central American farmers, where all the best pitaya fruits are found.

Prickly Pear is rich in Betalains – the antioxidants that support healthy inflammation response. For thousands of years, the people of Meso-American have used the Nopal (prickly pear) cactus as a source of food, water and as an herbal medicine. Recently, scientific research has begun to validate the astounding health benefits that Nopal can offer.

According to popular health expert, Dr. Andrew Weil MD, who was interviewed on The Dr. Oz Show in October 2012, "Chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses – including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer’s disease."

Bowl of Heaven founder, Dan McCormick, said of the new bowl, "We are thrilled to be the first fast casual chain to offer such a nutrient dense combination, and one with powerful inflammation-fighting ingredients."*

In addition to the Pitaya fruit and the Prickly Pear, the Paradise Bowl also includes Bowl of Heaven’s signature Maq7 superfruit juice, coconut water, pineapple, peaches, bananas, fresh mint leaves and a hint of watermelon stevia, topped with organic hemp seed granola, shredded coconut, fresh kiwi and strawberries with a drizzle of honey.

About Bowl of Heaven

Bowl of Heaven serves of fresh Acai bowls - healthy treats made with both fresh and frozen fruits, super fruits, and healthy toppings like organic granola and honey – which are considered the future of the frozen treats industry. These bowls, which are currently popular in Brazil and Hawaii, do not use any dairy or added sugars, are filled with nutrition and antioxidants, and due to the superfood traits of the acai berry can fill you up and energize you for hours on a mere 500 calories!

The concept was conceived by Dan McCormick and his son-in-law, Brandon Beazer, who both fell in love with acai bowls when they experienced them out in Hawaii, and longed for a way that they could enjoy the exotic fruit bowls back home in California. In 2010, they opened the first Bowl of Heaven location and accomplished this mission!

Bowl of Heaven is a winning combination of the health benefits of the acai bowl's ingredients and the wide consumer appeal of frozen desserts and smoothies. Bowl of Heaven frozen treats keep customers coming back for more because they are not only delicious but also make consumers feel good about themselves.
