Here’s my copycat recipe of one of the trendiest & hyped drinks in Los Angeles right now. Erewhon Market’s Coconut Cloud Smoothie created in partnership with influencer Marianna Hewitt – the smoothie costs a whopping $17, but you might not think the price is that outrageous if you gather all the ingredients to make this yourself. It’s made with MALK almond milk, pineapple, banana, avocado, almond butter, vanilla collagen, vanilla stevia, blue magix, and coconut cream – a few of these ingredients have a hefty price tag on their own, so $17 is actually not that crazy for this drink. If you’re used to Jamba Juice type smoothies, just know that this smoothie is not going to be as sweet, but it’s going to be 1000x times more beautiful. Watch my 30-second Instagram recipe video here
Here are a few ingredients you’ll need for the smoothie. I bought the Collagen Peptides at Costco and ordered the Blue Spirulina / Blue Majik online (buy here) Erewhon uses MALK Almond Milk, but any brand will work fine.
When you buy coconut cream for this recipe, make sure it lists guar gum as an ingredient on the can. If there’s no guar gum, it doesn’t whip up nicely. You can also save some time by substituting the coconut cream + sugar with So Delicious Cocowhip – it’s in a tub like cool whip and you can usually find it in the frozen section. I’ve seen it at Target, Sprouts and Whole Foods
When you add the Blue Spirulina / Blue Majik into the glass, sprinkle it down the inside of the glass like this
