Customization is all the rage in the food industry right now, from pizzas to smoothies to burrito bowls. Enter Colorado Boulevard’s Roots & Rye, which brings us customizable acai bowls and toasts—aka fast and healthy alternatives to greasy drive-thru fare—that are equal parts Instagram-worthy and delicious.
Every bowl is handcrafted to your specifications in the shop, entirely customized to your personal preferences for a flat fee based on the size of your container. That means no tallying the total cost by weight, so there’s more room for cacao nibs and almond butter drizzle.
For a bowl, mix and match your base (choices include acai, pitaya, oats, matcha, activated charcoal, and chia pudding), then let the fun begin. Go big or go home by adding toppings like granola, fruits, and nut butters. Same goes for the toasts: Whether classic avocado is your jam or you prefer a slathering of nut butter, the possibilities at Roots & Rye are endless. And that’s just the way we like it.
