Backyard Bowls is brand new to Los Angeles but it has already received quite a bit of attention. Pictures of their acai bowls are all over social media, and with their colorful, vibrant pictures showing bowls packed to the brim with superfoods, it’s no wonder why the shop has gained so much popularity. The prices may seem on the higher side, but Backyard uses only the best ingredients, and the bowls have the perfect consistency and sweetness making it worth every dollar…
Backyard Bowls states on their menu that everything can be made gluten free upon request. All of the delicious smoothies are gluten free and packed with good-for-you ingredients such as hemp milk, ginger, and cacao nibs. Backyard is known for their to-die-for smoothie bowls that are GF as long as you request the house made, GF granola. I love the Green Bowl, which is a blend of acai berry, banana, kale, spinach, lime, ginger, and apple juice topped with (GF) granola, berries and chia seeds. Beyond just acai smoothie bowls, Backyard also serves bowls blended with Pitaya or Aronia berries. These berries have so many antioxidants and health benefits! Backyard Bowls even has warm porridge bowls made with GF grains like quinoa and amaranth that I highly recommend too!
Backyard Bowls serves one of the best acai bowls I have ever had… and I eat a lot of acai! The atmosphere is casual and I love the spot’s focus on health. I’m glad to add this bright and open shop to my West Hollywood lunch rotation!
