Acai bowls are one of my favorite items to order at juice shops because they’re not only aesthetically pleasing, but also delicious! If you haven’t had an acai bowl before, it’s essentially a thick smoothie that’s topped with a variety of healthy items, such as fruits, granola, nuts, and sometimes even peanut or almond butter. Chock full of antioxidants, acai berries are a fantastic superfood, and have long been touted as offering a number of health benefits. Acai bowls are a popular breakfast item, but in my opinion, they’re great for whenever you want something a little bit sweet!
Depending on where I am in Boston, I have my go-to spots to grab a bowl as well as favorite acai options at each location. Whether you are new to the world of acai bowls or are already a fan of their icy fresh, antioxidant goodness, I wanted to share my favorite acai bowls in Boston.
The A-Lyst for Acai Bowls in Boston
The Coconut Acai Bowl at Thirst Juice Co. in Downtown Crossing offers just the right amount of coconut flavor mixed with fresh bananas and granola. I love adding strawberries as an extra fruit to go on the top, and I swear, with one bite, I instantly feel a bit more tropical! When you enter Thirst, don’t forget to look up, the original ceilings are amazing! 44 School Street, Boston, MA 02108
I love the Acai and Maqui Superfood Bowl at Pressed because of the fresh berries and scoop of house-made almond butter on top. These ingredients seriously make it THAT much better. Since Pressed’s new South End location is the closet juicery to my house, I really appreciate how you can pre-order your bowl by calling ahead or using ChowNow. A delicious and time efficient way to start my day! 643 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02118
If you’re like me and are obsessed with avocado, then you have to try the Avocado Bowl at Squeeze Juice Company. Squeeze is rapidly expanding across Boston, and since they already have an outpost conveniently located inside my gym, I am a pretty regular customer! Beyond acai, the Avocado Bowl boasts fresh avocado, lime, granola, honey, bananas, and hemp seed, and is one of my favorite weekend snacks! 131 Dartmouth Street, Boston, MA 02116
My first recommendation for ordering the Los Verdes acai bowl at JUGOS is to visit at an off-time because this tiny little shop connected to Back Bay Station is very busy and gets extremely crowded! The Los Verdes combines acai with spinach, kale, mango, and banana and is finished off with granola, banana, and goji berries. I personally love greens in my smoothies and bowls, so this one of my top picks for when I am trying to add more veggies into my day. 145 Dartmouth St, Boston, MA 02116
The Juicery, located in Boston’s North End, only offers one bowl on its menu, the Classic Acai Bowl, and it’s delicious! The Classic Acai Bowl, which is definitely on the larger side for acai bowls, is topped with bananas, coconut, granola, and peanut butter. Be forewarned: it’s very filling! 66A Cross St., Boston MA 02109
Whenever I find myself in South Boston, I try to stop by and grab the Good Morning Bowl at The Juice Box (I just wished they stayed open later!). The addition of dates in the ingredient list is what really makes this bowl stand out. Beyond dates and acai, the bowl features hemp seeds, granola, coconut flakes, banana, and coconut water. 359 West Broadway, South Boston, MA 02127
