Layering FIVE different smoothies in your glass takes dedication, but the work will certainly pay off. Marionberries, a berry native to Oregon, give this parfait a royal purple hue.
9. Acai Party Bowl (@vanillacrunch)
Coconut is rich in good-for-you saturated fats, so you’ll feel plenty satisfied after digging into this hearty smoothie bowl. Just don’t actually eat all of the coconut meat in this bowl, since that’s around 700 calories, not counting your smoothie!
10. Cheesecake Craving (@vega_team)
Sprinkle graham crackers on top of your post-workout smoothie for an extra special crunch. Cashew butter makes this non-dairy recipe extra creamy.

Grab your partner in crime and some hollowed-out coconuts for these vibrant breakfasts. Purple or green, you can’t go wrong with these fruity toppings.

Sharing is caring, especially when it comes to nutritious breakfasts. Slightly sweet and sour ruby-colored goji berries are a good source of vitamin C, and chia seeds bump up your protein and fiber.
