A smoothie bowl is like an edible sunshine and rainbow.

Whether it’s the deep-violet acai bowl or just the regular fruit-packed blend, the smoothie has a charm that never fails to lure in those who eat first with their eyes. However, some food artists and master cooks have absolutely cranked the art of the smoothie bowl up a notch by turning the multi-coloured liquids into a form of artistry – think, even Van Gogh’s Starry Night painted on a smoothie or a mermaid-inspired acai bowl.

So for those who consume smoothies as a main food group or even those who want to get into the healthy food craze, these smoothie art tutorials will make your health-boosting drinks more slurp-worthy – and instagrammable.
