When we think of healthy food, most people associate it with bland and boring dishes. However, Açaí is not only delicious but also Instagram-worthy! 

The popularity of Açaí (Ah-Sah-EE/Ah-Sigh-EE) has been on the rise over the past few years and it’s easy to see why with its many health benefits, such as improving the skin, digestive system, and cholesterol levels.

Here are five Açaí brands you can try out to satisfy your cravings.

1. An Açaí Affair

An Açaí Affair promises to serve organic Açaí in its purest form, meaning the calories and sugar per serving per bowl is one of the lowest.

From $6.30 onwards, you are able to get not only a healthy but also a filling meal. Not sure what to get for your first try? Their signature bowls include “Triple A”, “Nutty Party” and “Cocoglow”. 

Depending on whether you like more fruits, more nuts or a refreshing coconut taste, you can choose which bowl fits you best!

2. Project Açaí

Being Singapore’s first dedicated Açaí cafe, Project Açaí treat their eats very seriously. They blend their Açaí manually every hour in small batches, despite it being more time-consuming and labour intensive. 

You can get their fresh and scrumptious Açaí bowls from $6.80 onwards. While there are quite a few options to choose from, their more notable bowls include “Nuts For Acai Bowl” and “Original Flower Bowl”.

Beyond Açaí, they also sell smoothies, toast, beverages and Sambazon Açaí packets to make your own Açaí at home from scratch!

3. JUJU

At the Bukit Timah Gate of the Singapore Botanic Gardens lies a smoothie and bowl bar serving very palatable frozen treats. Free of refined sugars and handcrafted in small batches using only natural whole food ingredients, JUJU is a perfect breather for any wandering visitor. 

Something different about JUJU is the texture of their Açaí, which has more of a frozen yoghurt texture compared to the more common sorbet texture. 

This is something you can definitely check out if you are keen to try something different!

4. Sambazon Açaí

Being the first company to harvest Açaí and share this scrumptious goodness with the rest of the world in 2000, Sambazon Açaí is an established and trusted brand for many to satisfy their Açaí cravings at home. 

Sambazon Açaí not only shares this superfood in a way that benefits consumers, but also consciously benefits the planet by being the first certified organic and fair trade Açaí company in the world. This means they help to protect the Amazon rainforest and the family farmers as well.

You can purchase Sambazon Açaí at Fairprice, Redmart.com, Sasha’s Fine Foods, Tuckshop.SG, Shopee and Project Açaí. 

5. Haakon

When someone mentions Haakon, you may think of their Poke bowls. However, they do serve delish Açaí bowls starting from $7.90!

Their Açaí bowls have a more smoothie texture, containing superfoods and whole fruits to fill you with energy for the day ahead. A personal recommendation would be either the “Classic Açaí bowl” or the “Nut Butter Açaí Bowl”. Don’t hesitate to give it a try!
