Why drink a smoothie from a cup when you could spoon it from a bowl? A bowl gives you toppings, duh. Acai, pitaya, coconut, and kale bowls have appealed to health freaks for a while now, but are finally starting to spread to those who aren’t as healthy. The first time I tried a smoothie bowl was in New Jersey, and I fell in love.
I tried acai bowls from all different places in New York, but none of them hit the same spot that my first bowl did until I tried LOCO COCO. Loco Coco, a newly opened smoothie bowl shop on 63nd and Lexington Avenue, is absolutely amazing. These delicious, vegan, and kosher bowls are blended perfectly and topped with fresh and exotic toppings, such as edible flowers and golden raspberries. Loco Coco serves acai and pitaya smoothie bowl blends, as well as delicious smoothies and juices! My favorite was the ‘Mint Condition’ bowl. No visit to Loco Coco is complete without a picture in front of the neon “Loco Coco” sign! Get there ASAP and get ready to finally love the taste healthy food.
