View as Map

Smoothie bowls have swept the nation, and for good reason — they’re (supposedly) healthy, filling, and often topped with a heaping spoonful of peanut butter. The acai berry is often the base of these bowls, although other ingredients like pitaya, leafy greens, and coconut milk have become common substitutes. Finish the blended bottom layer with anything the heart desires — granola, bee pollen, coconut, Nutella — and it’s a full meal. When looking for something to satisfy hunger and a sweet tooth all at once, head to one of these eight Charleston destinations.
