It's tasty and nutritious, too!

This dreamy blue smoothie found fame on TikTok, where it was dubbed the "blue cloud smoothie," with its coconut cream topping mimicking a fluffy cloud set against a wide, blue sky. But gorgeous aesthetics aside, the smoothie, which originated from West Coast organic market, Erewhon, has more than just good looks. With protein, healthy fats, and a dose of blue spirulina, it packs a nutritional punch too.

We have the ingredients, step-by-step instructions, and a bonus tip to make this recipe even better for you and your skin. The secret? Include a scoop of collagen powder into your blend.* Don't worry, our powder of choice comes unflavored, so it won't mess with the delicious recipe, but you will be doing yourself a favor by adding some skin-loving ingredients.* Let's get into it!

Of course, we're huge fans of the smoothie's star ingredient, blue spirulina, sometimes referred to as blue Majik. It's packed with vitamins and minerals, including calcium, potassium, B vitamins, and iron; it also contains phycocyanin, which boasts some incredible antioxidant properties (it's also responsible for giving spirulina its vibrant blue-green color).

Then to add even more skin-healthy nutrients, why not toss collagen into the mix?* Collagen supplementation has countless benefits, both for the skin and the entire body.* It promotes your skin's natural collagen and elastin production, enhances skin hydration, and supports gut and digestive health.* You can read more about collagen's benefits here if you're curious, but it's an easy addition to any recipe, especially smoothies.

  • ½ cup frozen pineapple 
  • ½ cup milk of your choice
  • 1 frozen banana

  • 1 scoop unflavored mbg beauty & gut collagen+
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp blue spirulina powder
  • A drizzle of honey or agave 
  • 2 spoonfuls of coconut cream
