Cheapest acai bowls in Singapore
Image adapted from: @laoniangisfat
Acai bowls have been around for awhile now, and it’s no wonder our #healthyliving homies have all jumped on this smoothie bowl bandwagon. Blended from frozen Brazilian acai berries, these smoothie bowls have the consistency of ice cream and are packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, fibre, and protein.
The exotic superfoods that make up each bowl usually don’t come cheap, but before you pass on these nutritious concoctions, here’s a heads up: there are affordable acai bowls under $10 in town for that morning pick-me-up:
1. Parallel (from $8.90)
