Pura Vida Bowls & Java, a new acai bowl, coffee and smoothie food truck, is now serving in Severna Park. Pura vida derives from the Costa Rican lifestyle that translates to “pure life,” which is the inspiration for the new food truck menu. Founded by Severna Park residents Cortney and Chris Sperry, Pura Vida Bowls & Java food truck features coffee from the local Rise Up Coffee Roasters as well as acai and pitaya bowls and smoothies.
“I grew up in a family of restaurant entrepreneurs and always had a passion for finding new ways to get healthy fruits and vegetables into my family’s diet,” Cortney said. “When my husband, Chris, and I spend time surfing and paddleboarding on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, we always seek out acai bowls, so we wanted to bring these nutrient-packed bowls to Severna Park area residents. We look forward to delivering high-quality organic bowls, coffee and smoothies through our food truck as well as at parties and events.”
Acai (pronounced AH-sigh-YEE) is an antioxidant-rich organic berry that is native to rainforests in Central and South America. Pitaya, or dragon fruit, is primarily found in South America and is high in antioxidants. Pura Vida’s bowls are made from acai and pitaya blends, not frozen yogurt, and they are free of artificial preservatives, trans fat and other fillers. Fully customized acai and pitaya bowls can be topped with organic granola, chia seeds, hemp seeds, almond slices, cacao nibs, coconut flakes and a selection of drizzles.
