An icy bowl of acai is a delicious option for breakfast and it packs quite a health punch as the purple berries are loaded with antioxidants. Here are six of the best places to go in London to get an acai fix…
Bodyism’s acai bowl available at its Westbourne Grove cafe scores top marks for presentation, contains a Bodyism supplement powder of your choice and has all the desired toppings: lashing of almond butter, sprinkle of granola, goji berries and fresh fruit.
Acai bowls are this superfood cafe’s specialty and we love the fact you can personalise your order with choice of toppings from fresh strawberries to chia seeds. Find Acai Berry at four different locations – Soho, Chelsea, Shoreditch and Oxford Street.
A favourite among the health-conscious crowd, Farm Girl’s acai offering is made with organic Amazonia berries, banana and almond milk and sprinkled with superfood ingredients. Granola and almond butter cost extra, which does hike the price up but it’s probably worth it.
Aussie-inspired Dayrooms Cafe (Notting Hill and Holborn) knocks up acai bowls made with sustainable sourced Boa Vida Acai – and they are a thing of beauty. Take a spoonful, close your eyes and pretend you’re on Bondi Beach.
Juicebaby is a grab-and-go cafe/juice bar in Notting Hill that’s perfect for a post-yoga pitstop. Opt for the classic acai bowl topped with banana, dates and almond butter or go full-on wellness warrior and order the Acai Verde with added spirulina.
Pret a Manger
We were delighted when Pret brought out its wallet-friendly acai bowl, which contains a layer of gluten-free granola and banana covered with acai berry puree, pomegranate seeds, shredded apple and almond butter. It may not be quite as special, or as generously portioned, as the others but it does the job.
