A copycat of the viral Erewhon coconut cloud smoothie, this dreamy fruit smoothie is made with avocado, banana, pineapple, and coconut yogurt. I've skipped the stevia, using a little maple syrup instead, omitted the collagen, plus added a touch of vanilla for a bit more flavour. The smoothie was made in conjunction with Marianna Hewitt.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutions

  • Fruit: you'll need frozen banana, pineapple, and avocado. I think mango could be a good sub for pineapple. The avocado and banana are a bit part of what make the smoothie creamy so don't omit them.
  • Almond butter: sub another nut or seed butter if preferred, but try to stick to something pretty neutral (not peanut butter).
  • Maple syrup: use your preferred liquid sweetener.
  • Yogurt: I like Greek-style coconut yogurt for this recipe but you could use another vegan yogurt type if you don't like coconut.
  • Blue Majik: this is a blue spirulina and it doesn't contain any artificial colouring – it's naturally bright blue – but you could use green spirulina for a more rolling green hills kind of smoothie.

Step by Step

Blue smoothie steps 1 to 4, blending and layering in the glass.

Step 1: add the ingredients to a blender.

Step 2: mix on high speed until very smooth.

Step 3: paint some yogurt onto a glass and sprinkle with spirulina.

Step 4: fill the glass with the smoothie and watch clouds appear!

Top Tips

  • Order it online: blue majik might be hard to find locally, but it can be bought online. I like the E3Live brand.
  • Use frozen fruit: if the fruit isn't frozen, the smoothie will be too thin and missing that thick, fluffy texture.
  • Skip it if you don't like spirulina: it's an acquired taste and not everyone likes the algae flavour of it. I don't find that it's very strong here, with the pineapple especially, but if you despise spirulina, you probably won't like this smoothie.

FAQ

What's in the Erewhon cloud smoothie?

The Erewhon version is organic almond milk, organic pineapple, organic banana, organic avocado, organic almond butter, organic vanilla collagen, vanilla stevia, blue majik, and organic coconut cream.

What mixes well with spirulina?

Strong fruits like pineapple work well, and a bit of fat (like nut butter) will help to make the taste more palatable.

Is spirulina good for you in smoothies?

Spirulina is high in several vitamins and minerals (potassium, iron, magnesium) so it's considered a superfood. Adding it to smoothies is an easy way to consume spirulina regularly.
