Açai bowls are the perfect thing to eat in almost every situation. Whether it's for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, before or after a workout, or just when you need a fruity pick-me-up, an açai bowl will always do the trick. Long Island has dozens of places to get açai bowls, but here are the five best spots for when you need to get in your açai fix (or get a good Insta). 

1. Nooks and Kindles (Roslyn)

Nooks and Kindles açai bowls are the bowls you've always wanted. Their organic ingredients not only taste amazing, but they make you feel like what you're eating is actually good for you. They have tons of different options so that everyone can find something they like for their bowl. My personal favorite is the build your own bowl with strawberries, bananas, granola, honey, and when I need some protein, almond butter. 

#SpoonTip: Add honey on the bottom to make it extra sweet. 

2. Real Food Real People (Huntington)

Real Food Real People is the epitome of the trendy açai bowl. They also use all organic ingredients in everything they make. Watching the employees make the bowls is mesmerizing, and trust me, the bowls taste even better than they look. Real Food Real People puts their bowls in hollowed out pineapples or coconuts, which not only reduces the use of plastic bowls, but makes for an Instagram post bound to get tons of likes. They have a variety of different toppings you can add, but my personal favorites will always be dark chocolate chips or Nutella. 

3. Sobol (Syosset)

Sobol has a variety of toppings, and many different locations, so there is always one nearby. The bowls are always fresh, and the toppings are always delicious. They offer three different sizes, as opposed to most places, which only have one standard size. I personally love this option, because when you want an açai bowl, but aren't too hungry, you can always go with the smallest size. All of their bowls are customizable and made to order. They have the option of adding kiwi to your bowl, which is something I've never seen anywhere else, but would love to try. 

4. Juice Generation (Rosevelt Field Mall)

Juice Generation, which is most commonly known for their juices and wellness shots, also makes several types of açai bowls that include unique ingredients you do not often see in an açai bowl. For example, they add passionfruit, starfruit, dragon fruit, cherries, and other exotic ingredients not only to the top of the bowl, but also into the açai mix. So, if you are trying to be a little more adventurous with your açai choices, Juice Generation would be a great choice for you. I was skeptical to try bee pollen on my bowl when I first got it, but it was actually really delicious. 

5. Kitchen Kabaret (Roslyn)

Kitchen Kabaret has a great classic açai bowl that will be sure to satisfy all of your açai cravings. Their chunks of granola cannot be topped, and the smooth açai never fails to please. They are extremely generous when it comes to the granola, Nutella, peanut butter, or almond butter, which is something everyone always enjoys. My favorite bowl includes a lot of Nutella, and sometimes they even give you an extra scoop of Nutella on a spoon to eat while you're waiting for the bowl. 

Açai is the superfood trend that doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon. So, if you're in Long Island and craving some açai, try these places for new ways to have your açai and eat it too.
