Acai bowls are THE guilt-free raw treat you’ll actually love. Here are our faves in Singapore!
Acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) is the one superfood that’s sealed its status amongst the health-conscious and the general public. Why, you ask? Acai bowls are packed with antioxidants, healthy fats and fibre — aka all the good stuff. Plus, it helps to prevent heart problems, aids weight loss and even improves skin health. So if you’re a sweet tooth looking for a more wholesome version of ice cream, hit up these healthy cafes for the most delightful acai bowls in Singapore.
Best acai bowls in Singapore
1. An Acai Affair
Options are plentiful here, which means you won’t have a problem satisfying your craving for this superfood. The delish acai bowls come in a range of bases such as chia pudding, passion fruit mango spirulina, yoghurt and fresh fruits. Drizzle yours with honey, cookie butter, peanut butter, almond butter or cashew butter. Alternatively, make your own by choosing a size, base, fruit, superfood and drizzle.

2. Absolute Acai
Tucked away in the basement of Square 2 mall at Novena, this is where sweet tooths can enjoy a midday pick-me-up without the guilt. These folks source their acai all the way from Brazil. Devour your order in a bowl or a cup. But if you’re on the go, have it as a smoothie with creations like acai mango and acai strawberry.
