Eating pretty meals makes them taste even more delicious. (Seriously, science says so.) But you don’t need to go full unicorn to experience it. Exhibit A: the humble smoothie.

Sure, it sometimes emerges from your blender as one big, brown blob—but with the right recipe, you can make over your meal into something absolutely dreamy.

The key is knowing what natural ingredients mix well with others (for taste and looks), as well as the order to layer them. But once you master that, you’re mere minutes away from a truly lovely breakfast, snack, or even dessert.

Rounded up here are the nine most beautiful smoothies on the internet (according to us, at least)—all loaded with health benefits. Take out your blender, grab a straw, and get ready to fall hard for these stunners.

1. Papaya Colada Smoothie

Smoothie-master Alison Wu’s Instagram feed is full of layered beauties. Besides brain-boosting cauliflower (yes, really!) and fibrous flax seeds, this one’s spiked with MCT oil and probiotic powder—throw in some kiwi slices and it’s literally bursting with benefits.

3. Tropical Fruit Breakfast Smoothie

Sometimes it just takes two colors—not the whole rainbow—to make a (delicious) statement. Consider this one, featuring coconut meat, mango, pineapple, and kiwi, your sunset-in-a-glass smoothie.

4. Blueberry Coconut Layered Smoothie

Blueberries, coconut, and banana give this smoothie its pretty ombre colors. Pro tip: Keep your layers looking clean by spooning each color separately into a dry glass.

5. Blueberry Hemp Swirl Smoothie

Channeling your ice cream cravings into a healthy smoothie is the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth without dipping into anything artificial. Get your swirl on by gently swishing a spoon around the glass.

6. Berry Vanilla Smoothie

This smoothie looks almost too pretty to eat—but that would mean missing out on a big antioxidant boost. Just be sure to sub out the sugar in the recipe for monk fruit to keep your meal full of good-for-you benefits only.
