Healthy living? Piece of cake.
As far as eating healthy goes, purple is the new green. This dedicated acai cafe brings the Brazilian Amazon’s fave superberries to your palate. Try the Flower Bowl – freshly blended acai base with a heap of toppings including granola, banana, mango, blueberries, coconut shavings, cacao nibs, bee pollen and more.

You don’t have to give up cake, either. Cream and Custard’s sweet treats include their specialty Watermelon Strawberry Cake, layers of almond dacquoise, fresh rose whipped cream (sugar-free, might we add) and a think chunk of watermelon that accords a juicy burst of au naturel sweetness.

If you weren’t told, you’d never guess these tofu cheesecakes do away with all the heavy cream cheese that’ll pile on the pounds. Instead, it’s densely packed with (you guessed it) good ol’ tofu, achieving that same creamy texture we all love about cheesecakes. Topped with real fruit, so if anyone questions you, you’re having your five-a-day.

Chocoholics, here’s one for you: this artisanal chocolate boutique-cafe specialises in dark chocolate that go from rich to, well, ultra-rich. Grab their bean-to-bar confectionaries home for round two. After all, we’ve all heard countless of experts rave about the health benefits of dark chocolate.

NEXT: Coocaça →
Coocaça’s deliciously nutritious smoothie bowls are packed with all the goodness of superfoods like acai and dragonfruit, and blended with soy milk or coconut water for a lighter, more refreshing texture. Considering they’re more a dessert pit-stop than a sit-down cafe, these are perfect for a pick-me-up to combat the hot weather.

NEXT: Brownice →
Made from a base of organic brown rice milk, these treats may be dairy-free, vegan, and all-natural, but they still taste as rich and indulgent as the real thing. Must-tries include the Earl Grey, Loco Coco, or fresh flavours like the Pumpkin Coconut.
#01-03 Sin Ming Centre, 8 Sin Ming Rd, Singapore 575628
NEXT: HUSK →
If they were to specialise in only one product, you can bet it’s good stuff. And HUSK’s niche? You might’ve guessed from its name: coconut desserts made from 100% young coconut. Their Froco – rich, ice-cold swirls of frozen coconut – is low in calories, sugar and saturated fat, and even 99% dairy free.
#B2-49 Plaza Singapura, 68 Orchard Rd, Singapore 238839
NEXT: Afterglow →
What’s a cheesecake without cheese or sugar? We say this in a good way, though – this sort of magic is something only the folks at vegan eatery Afterglow can pull off. For a place all about healthy eating, you’d hardly expect decadent desserts like brownies, fudges and cheesecakes to grace the menu. But they do, and be warned: you might just be a convert at first bite.

NEXT: Uggli Muffins →
There’s the rest of the foodie world gunning for the most insta-worthy dishes, and then there’s Uggli Muffins, with, um, ugly muffins. Here, they’re all about the good old art of baking – the muffins are browned in the oven to a rich, dark shade, and each has a crusty, caramelized top that intensifies its own flavour. So, there’s no more sugar or artificial ingredients than needed, only fresh bakes with, in their own words, “perfect imperfection”.
