Bearenger is a health and wellness content creator who shares videos of healthy and gorgeous recipes featuring a natural, minimalist aesthetic. Recently, Bearenger posted a copycat recipe for the viral $17 blue smoothie from swanky Los Angeles-based grocery chain Erewhon, made in partnership with influencer Marianna Hewitt (@marianna_hewitt), and it’s as pretty and tasty as the original, but at a fraction of the cost!

The clip opens with a shot from Hewitt’s original post highlighting the vibrant smoothie with varying blue hues. 

“I have been seeing this Erewhon smoothie everywhere. We’re going to make it,” Bearenger declares over footage of her getting down to business. She intently places a large blender on the counter before taking viewers through the process step by step. 

Bearenger begins by adding frozen bananas, frozen pineapples, avocado, a scoop of almond butter, coconut cream, vanilla collagen, blue spirulina powder (bright blue-green algae), almond milk and agave to the blender.

Next, she thoroughly blends the ingredients, forming a thick, pale blue smoothie. Assembling the beverage looks similar to layering sand art at a carnival, making the process especially satisfying to watch. 

First, Bearenger adds coconut cream to a large glass, followed by a layer of blue spirulina powder. She then pours in the smoothie and gently swirls the mix with a straw to create an attractive gradient. 

Finally, Bearenger tops the beverage with another scoop of coconut cream. The finished product is a visually striking smoothie that is “definitely not $17” and, according to Bearenger, “tastes really good.”

“It looks like a scented candle”

Viewers were particularly taken by the smoothie’s aesthetic appeal.

“The color is too good,” one user complimented. 

“Ok, now I have to make this,” announced one TikToker

“It looks like a scented candle,” another viewer joked. 

As Bearenger’s copycat recipe for Erewhon’s blue smoothie demonstrates, pretty, tasty and healthy can exist alongside budget-friendly when it comes to food.
