Make your own gorgeous smoothie bowls
These rainbow-coloured smoothie bowls will exceed your expectations of an Instagram-worthy smoothie bowl. With intricately cut fruits layered perfectly on top of one another, these vegan smoothie bowls are more like art pieces than food.
The creator of these art bowls, Rachel Lorton, who calls herself a ‘smoothie bowl art enthusiast’, says it takes her just four minutes to finish decorating a bowl!
Smoothies like these are a good way to musk the taste of bitter-tasting supplements or vegetables. Blend those ingredients and they make a perfect breakfast or dessert bowl.
Here are our favourite bowls, plus a tip or two to create your own.
Baby blue and magenta twirly patterns, complemented with heart-shaped pineapple and kiwi slices, top this masterpiece. These bright, bold hues aren’t derived from artificial colouring, but from red dragon fruit, coconut yogurt and spirulina powder.

Red dragon fruit
With specks of white and baby blue (coconut yogurt and blue spirulina powder) over the midnight blue smoothie base, this bowl resembles a cool winter sky.
Heart-shaped strawberries and white dragon fruit decorate the side of the bowl. White swirls of coconut yogurt are created with a toothpick, sliding up and down to form flower-like patterns.
The activated coconut charcoal powder in this bowl helps to remove toxins from your body. The colours are made with different types of natural powders: spirulina (blue), black goji berry (purple), red dragon fruit (pink) and butterfly pea flower (purple).
Natural ingredients such as cane sugar, butterfly pea flower powder and water are mixed to create edible glitter. It is then sprinkled on top to add a magical touch.

Summery Flower Bowl
Change up the colour of your smoothie by experimenting with different types of natural powders, like red beet powder or turmeric. Or you could add organic mushroom powder that’s good for sports recovery and performance. By the way, that beautiful, apricot-coloured flower in the middle is a meticulous assembly of peach slices.
Blue, red and white swirls are made with coconut milk yogurt as a base. Pomegranate seeds, blueberries, star-shaped dragon fruit and coconut shavings are sprinkled around the smoothie. Doesn’t it resemble a Christmas wreath?
