Smoothies. Incredibly versatile in natural whilst pulling off tasting amazing, they can be whatever you want them to be! A dessert, a meal, a snack, especially so with the rise of smoothie bowls. I swear, smoothie bowls offer all the elements to encourage us to eat healthy: Bright colours, superb presentation, delicious in flavour and it doesn’t hurt that they look incredible on our Instas as well! All the more reason to incorporate these yummy treats into our diet! So here are 12 Smoothie Spots in KL that will satisfy your cravings for this delectable drink, absent the guilty aftermath of calorie surplus.
Smoothie Spots in KL #1: Açaí Lab, Solaris
Recharge yourself with superberry powers as you savour the ambrosial delights the açaí smoothies Açaí Lab has to offer. The first ever authentic açaí smoothie bar around KL, its founders, upon returning from a visit to Rio felt the need to replicate Brazil’s bread and butter berry offerings right here on the streets of KL. This nutritional heavyweight champion of a berry carries more than twice the amount of antioxidants than that of blueberries, and ten times that of grapes. Great for heart health, muscle performance and energy production, what with its robust dose of anthocyanin antioxidants, amino acids, protein, calcium, fibre, omega fats and vitamins. Importing these Brazilian açaí berries frozen and mashing them into pulp, this açaí smoothie is as authentic as it gets. My favourite was the Rio Bowl. A harmonious blend of sour açaí pulp, sweet bananas and zesty apple juice. Refreshing and mouth-watering, it’s creamy texture, mild natural sweetness and crunchy homemade granola drew us into açaí heaven bite after delicious bite. Honestly, healthy eating doesn’t get better than this!
Price Range: RM 10 – RM22
Address: 12, Jalan Solaris 3, Solaris Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur
Smoothie Spots in KL #2: Cabana Açaí, Publika
Cabana Açaí is the only other authentic açaí smoothie bar in KL as of now. When I say authentic, I’m talking about their use of frozen açaí pulp, as opposed to the masses who use açaí powder to flavour. The use of the berry’s actual pulp gives their açaí creations that perfect thick and creamy texture along with its gorgeous maroon shade. Cabana Açaí’s distinct açaí base resembles a refreshing, tropical blend of berry, creamy banana and intoxicating red wine. Usually accompanied by yummy, crunchy granola, super seeds and fresh fruit toppings, this low-calorie, nutrient loaded, luscious smoothie is a real treat indeed.
Price Range: RM13 – RM26
Address: Lot 63, Level UG, Publika Shopping Gallery, No. 1, Jalan Dutamas 1, Solaris Dutamas, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Smoothie Spots in KL #3: Squeeeze Me Baby, One Utama
Who know smoothies could come in a BPA-free, colourful squeeze pouch! Well, one mother, Ann Yeap, filled with zeal to provide the best for her son developed this range of fantastically convenient smoothies, easy to store, carry around and consume. Fresh fruits and vegetables steamed to preserve their nutritional value, are then blended on the spot upon demand. Its aim: to provide the maximum amount of nutrients possible in each mouthful of smoothie consumed. Albeit Squeeeze Me Baby’s steep passion for nutrition, it doesn’t compromise on flavour. The smoothies here taste the most natural, absent artificial ingredients, making it taste as though you’re sucking up juice from the actual fruit itself.

Smoothie Spots in KL #4: Ola Bowls, One Utama
Ola! It means healthy in Hawaiian and that is essentially what founder Zack Hong strives to offer. Decadent bowls of fruity goodness. Taking fruits and vegetables fresh and creating beautiful, Instagram-worthy meal options, Ola Bowls take care to provide as authentic an offering as possible. We tried the King of Greens, a creamy avocado and banana blend that’ll sooth the stress of the day away. This bowl, packs quite a punch making it an excellent healthy and satisfying meal replacement option. The Tropical Passion, harnessed the delectable taste of mango along with its glorious colour and nutritional benefits to create an impeccable masterpiece. It was thick in consistency and filled with savoury pieces of the fruit itself, with a playful hint of crunchiness from the granola and pomegranate.

This smoothie bar doesn’t just promote clean eating, its strive for a sustainable planet can be seen by its use of eco-friendly and biodegradable materials in all their packaging, a noteworthy effort indeed.

Smoothie Spots in KL #6: The Good Co., Bangsar
This rustic, cement-walled, spacious café filled with quaint wooden furniture besets an atmosphere that one would enjoy with coffee and a good book. Its floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the streets of Bangsar stage a calm and collected ambiance, perfect for both work and play. The brainchild of sibling duo, Gavin and Levy Li, the battle against colon cancer fought by their father was the root of their inspiration in crafting a menu fit for healthy eating with no preservatives, no refined sugar, no artificial colouring and only using plant-based ingredients. One of their healthy highlights are their smoothie bowls, of which there are four selections to choose from; the Açaí Bowl, Ocean Bowl, Golden Bowl and Hana Bowl.
