Don’t let this trendy melange of icy berries, bananas and granola bloat your budget. We found out where to get the cheapest acai bowls in Singapore.

The acai bowl has been described as “the breakfast of dreams”. Why? Well, first of all, it looks like an inviting bowl of ice cream. It almost tastes like ice cream. But unlike ice cream, this super superfood is super healthy. It fills you up for hours — but in a good way, unlike after you’ve wiped out a family-sized bag of Lay’s chips, sans family.

Fun fact: an Acai bowl has so little naturally occurring sugar that each serving of 100 grams of puréed açai contains just 0 to 2 grams of sugar. Yeah, it’s time to toss out that “low-sugar” cereal and have this healthy “dessert’ for breakfast. And lunch. And dinner.

We hear you, though. Maintaining a healthy diet doesn’t always go light on your wallet. Unless you are willing to DIY it every day (got time?), you have to ask yourself: where can I get the cheapest acai bowls in Singapore?

It’s a question we have been pondering. So, we took on a little acai-gnment (sorry, couldn’t help it) to find some answers. What are restaurants charging for acai bowls, and what pain will it cause our finances as our body gain from an acai a day for a month?

Acai Bowls Below S$10

An Acai Affair
101East Coast Road, Singapore 428796

They serve their acai in a coconut husk. Guess that means you can literally eat a bowl of acai — giving you a little more bang for your buck.  

One bowl: From S$5.90.
One bowl a day for a month: From S$177

Absolute Acai
3 Pickering Street #01-38, Singapore 048660

Considering the location of Absolute Acai — in the CBD — prices are pretty reasonable. They also have interesting toppings such as bee pollen. And if you’re too lazy busy to eat out, they’re available for delivery on Deliveroo, Food Panda and UberEats. Encourage your colleagues to eat healthy and, mainly, to split the delivery cost with you.

One bowl: From S$5.90
One bowl a day for a month: From S$177

Project Acai
27 Lorong Liput, Holland Village
391 Orchard Road
#B2-32A Takashimaya Shopping Centre

We hear that Project Acai is a go-to for acai afficionados. According to the PA team, what makes them different is that they make theirs in small batches every hour, every day, in order to give customers the best bowl.

One bowl: From S$6.90
One bowl a day for a month: S$207

Haakon
118 Holland Ave, #01-03 Raffles Holland V, Singapore 278997

Levelling up on the fancy factor, Haakon makes their acai bowls with raw cacao and swirled with coconut ice-cream, too. It may sound a little more sinful than the rest, but hey, give yourself a cheat day, live a little. The mount of fruits and granola for toppings should assauge your guilt a little.

One bowl: From S$7.90
One bowl a day for a month: S$237

Acai Bowls S$10 and Above

Seed and Soil

1 Tanjong Pagar Plaza #01-22, Singapore 082001

Most acai bowls are almost sorbet in texture, but not Seed and Soil. It might be a bit on the pricey side but they pride themselves on omitting any juices or liquids in their puree so really, you’re getting your money’s worth. Their method gives thei acai puree a creamy, almost gelato-like texture.   

One bowl: From S$10
One bowl a day for a month: S$300

Strangers’ Reunion
35 Kampong Bahru Rd, Singapore 169356

Acai bowl blended with coconut water with a generous #instaworthy collage of strawberries, granola, wolfberries, pumpkin seeds and more good stuff. Doesn’t it sound like the perfect match for your morning cup of joe? Your body and your Instagram feed will thank you. Your wallet, however…

One bowl: From S$11.90
One bowl a day for a month: S$357

Afterglow by Anglow

24 Keong Saik Rd, Singapore 089131

Similar to ice-cream or sorbet in texture, Afterglow, known and loved for its modern vegan fare, has pretty unique toppings to offer. Think raw walnut brownies to dehydrated coconut crackers. Yum.

One bowl: From S$15
One bowl a day for a month: S$450

Super Loco
60 Robertson Quay, #01-13 The Quayside, Singapore 238252

For a place that sells Super Churros, breakfast burritos and margaritas, they’re pretty well known for serving up a mean acai bowl that will make you go loco. Also similar to gelato in texture, topping options include sweet mango chunks, fluffy coconut shavings and quinoa reminiscent of torched rice Crispies.

The catch: Acai bowls are only available for lunch on weekends. Which is kind of perfect because we really don’t think blowing S$450 a month on acai is berry wise.

One bowl: From S$15
One bowl per weekend for a month: From S$60

Get Rewarded with the Right Credit Card

If you’re going to make fancy iced kachang from Brazil a regular indulgence, you might as well earn rewards from it. And the easiest way to do that is to pay with the right credit card.

For instance, a travel credit card like Citi PremierMiles Visa Signature Card can make your acai breakfast count towards your next trip, with an earn rate of 1.2 miles per S$1 spent. Are shopping rewards more your thing?  Use the American Express CapitaCard and get 15 STAR$ for every S$1 spent at CapitaLand malls, and 5 STAR$ for every S$1 spent elsewhere.
