What's better than an acai bowl?
In this post, I go over one of my favorite super cute spots to grab an acai bowl. I grabbed a quick light acai bowl with a friend and it did not disappoint.

Lilikoi. The name of a friend's puppy (local kine). And also the Hawaiian word for passion fruit.
Original Acai OR Lilikoi Moana Bowl?
Their ORIGINAL ACAI BOWL 24oz is a classic choice. It has the regular base youd expect: Organic Acai, Tropical Fruits, Banana, Cold-Pressed Apple Juice, Almond Milk. The toppings that are generously put on top are: Strawberry, blueberries, local banana, Big Island organic honey, organic granola.
There's another option that may take it up a level: the LILIKOI MOANA BOWL
Hear me out. Yes, it's not the classic acai bowl. But, I personally think it's better. Best for those with a sweet tooth.
So, what exactly is it you ask? Lilikoi is the Hawaiian word for passion fruit. This bowl comes in TWO sizes: 24oz and the smaller 16oz. While the 24oz is great for sharing, I like the smaller 16oz for just me. And the toppings? Same as the acai bowl…BUT you also get papaya and fresh housemade lilikoi honey instead of Big Island organic honey.
