These Intricate Smoothie Bowl Designs Will Leave You Breathless

September 26, 2017

Paper? PassΓ©. Lattes? Lame. I'm currently mesmerized by a canvas that's edible, healthy, and great for breakfast: a smoothie bowl. Meet Hazel Zakariya, the smoothie artist whose Instagram is a captivating collection of color, delicately brushed across a bevy of breakfast purees.

In her hometown of Auckland, New Zealand, Zakariya is a research and market analyst by day and smoothie artist extraordinaire by night. Each fruity creation takes around five hours and is completely edible. Designs range from a mango-flavored dancing Emma Stone to a coconut cream koala. Don’t deem all her portraits cute, howeverβ€”her most recent post put Pennywise the clown in mixed berry relief. Here are some of her most brilliant creations:

The final hogwarts house smoothie - Gryffindor!!! I always have The Sorting Hat's voice in my head saying this 🀣 - which so happens to originally be Godric Gryffindor's hat and fashion accessory πŸ€“ Stands for Bravery, Daring, Chivalry and Courage 🦁 Did you know that J.K. Rowling herself was sorted into Gryffindor too? Her journey is one of the most inspiring stories of success for me, and certainly teaches us the power of determination and never giving up ❀️ Any Gryffindors here? This one's for you 😘✨ -------- This one is rather challenging because of the intense red which tends to seep through the lighter colours but so so happy that i managed to get this done before my trip (literally not that long before leaving for my flight). I was too excited to complete the series and share it with you πŸ€— Have a great week ahead my dears! πŸ’• -------- Base smoothie: Boysenberries, raspberries, grapefruit, coconut water On top: Raspberries, coconut cream, blackberries, mango, turmeric, cacao & carob syrup, spirulina, mesquite powder . . . . . #foodart #healthyfood #creative #eattheworld #harrypotter #cleaneats #yahoofood #huffposttaste #healthyfoodshare #thekitchn #f52grams #eatclean #kaylaitsines #healthylifestyle #beautifulcuisines #eeeeeats #smoothie #buzzfeast #foodandwine #postitfortheaesthetic #foodstyling #foodblogger #foodphotography #gloobyfood #eattherainbow #smoothiebowl #thatsdarling #vscofood #darlingmovement #veganfoodshare
