5 places to find authentic acai bowls in Boston…and more!
Cocobeet takes the cake for its gorgeous, unique bowls. From the green bowl, to the pitaya bowl, to the classic acai bowl – each bowl is topped artfully. Cocobeet sets itself apart by using sunflower milk in some of its bowls, which makes them nut-allergy friendly.
This Brazilian spot is known for its colorful bowls and authentic combinations. They have both pitaya and acai bowls; it’s touted as the most authentic acai bowl in Boston.
The Juicery’s bowls are the best bang for your buck. They just have one bowl — their classic Acai Bowl — but it’s large enough for a meal, not just a snack. It comes topped with peanut butter, coconut, cacao nibs, bananas, and granola. Plus, you can make adjustments to the toppings if you wish. Pro-tip: I sub in almond butter and sunflower seeds for the peanut butter and granola to make it Paleo-friendly.
With having three locations (Newbury St, Boston Public Market, Kendall Square), Mother Juice is consistently good. The great thing about Mother Juice is that they have a variety of made-to-order food options like different toasts and salads in addition to their classic Acai Bowl.
They do only offer one bowl, but you can ask to make one of their smoothies into a bowl if you’re really feeling it. Their toppings are generous — a mix of coconut, granola, and berries; if you’re looking for something that never disappoints, then MoJu is your best bet.
Juice Press may be a NYC chain, but it’s been welcomed happily here in Boston. They have a variety of acai bowls, but the real star is their “Heaven on Earth” green bowl -— it really does live up to its name.
