If you are looking for the best smoothie bowls in Los Angeles, look no further. Acai Nation, with locations in both Brentwood and the Pacific Palisades, offers the best acai bowls in the city.

Not only do their bowls look picture-perfect, but they are also incredibly delicious and energizing. My personal favorite item on the menu is the custom “Classic Acai Bowl #1,” which contains acai, guarana, strawberries, coconut flakes and almond french vanilla granola — simple and sweet. 

Packed with fresh fruit and superfoods, these acai bowls are loaded with health benefits. According to Acai Nation’s website, acai “is proven to improve digestion, increase the ability to focus, [while also guaranteeing] body detox and the strengthening [of] immune [systems].”

The fruit is also rich in antioxidants and contains a wide range of dietary vitamins and minerals including iron, potassium, phosphorus and calcium.

However, the eatery does not simply serve amazing acai bowls. Their menu also includes a wide range of granola, fruit and superfoods, and when combined, these toppings create the best treats you could ever imagine.

Also offered is a “Custom Bowls” section, where customers can order their favorite blend of ingredients off of the menu. The employees are extremely helpful, and the service is fantastic. Those who work at the shop are always willing to accommodate anything a customer asks for.

If you become an addict like me, another bonus is their punch card. For every 13 acai bowls (a lot, I know), the 14th one is free. However, once you start eating at Acai Nation, 13 will no longer seem like an absurdly large number. 

I would absolutely recommend this eatery to anyone looking for a refreshing, nutritious snack. You can find Acai Nation Brentwood at 11740 San Vicente Blvd, which is open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily. Acai Nation Pacific Palisades is located at 857 Vía De La Paz and is open every day from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
