Hi friends! So, I’ve been loving using the E3Live Blue Majik that I unboxed for you in a previous post and video. When I use lightly colored fruits, it turns the whole smoothie bowl a beautiful, ocean-turquoise color. I call it a “Mermaid Smoothie Bowl”! Okay, not the most unique name, but it’s what comes to mind. Anywho, today, I’m sharing my very simple and easy mermaid smoothie bowl recipe and how-to video. And the best part – it’s so much easier to make this than it looks! Plus, the smoothie only contains 4 ingredients that are all plant-based. And did I mention there are no added sugars? #healthy Let’s jump in…

I asked a friend to look at this smoothie bowl while I was editing the video and tell me if it looks complicated. They said it did, which surprised me because it’s so easy. I share exactly how to get this look in the above video, so definitely check that out. It’s a short one at just over 3 minutes long.
Simple, Clean, Plant-Based Ingredients
As you guys know, I try to eat as clean as possible. And this smoothie bowl is no exception.
Look how short the smoothie base ingredient list is:
- frozen banana
- frozen pineapple
- almond milk
- E3Live Blue Majik
And you can go crazy with toppings from here.
Note: Ninja Kitchen gifted the blender to me a few years ago. You can read more about why I love this blender here.
What Is E3Live Blue Majik?
The Blue Majik is actually blue-green algae. According to E3Live’s site:
Blue Majik is a proprietary, chemical free extract of Arthrospira platensis (Spirulina), a Nutrient Dense AquaBotanicalTM. Its stunning blue pigment contains both phycocyanin (PC) and non-PC compounds. This unique combination is not seen in standard Spirulina powder. PC is clinically shown to relieve physical discomfort, which means consumers feel better, can do more activity, and enjoy an overall better quality of life*
Blue Majik Fine Powder is derived from the highest quality, Organic raw material. Perfect for your beverage or raw food creation.
The Blue Majik is the secret ingredient of this bowl. It makes the smoothie that pretty aqua color while also coming with a list of wonderful potential health benefits. PS I just read on the E3Live site that it’s also vegan and gluten-free.
Where to Buy Edible Flowers
It took me awhile to find edible flowers, but they finally popped up at my local Whole Foods. However, I also heard that your local farmers market is a great place to find edible flowers. I checked with mine, and they said they did carry them sometimes though they didn’t have any on the day I inquired.
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 frozen banana
- ½ cup almond milk, plus additional to get the smoothie to blend
- ½ teaspoon E3Live Blue Majik
- ¼ cup granola of choice
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- edible flower
- In a blender, combine pineapple, banana, almond milk, and Blue Majik. Blend until smooth. Add additional almond milk, as needed, just to get the smoothie to blend. Note: I like to add a little bit of extra almond milk at a time to keep the bowl as thick as possible.
- Pour the smoothie base into a bowl and add toppings. Note: I like to keep about half of the smoothie visible so you can really see the turquoise color. Check out the video for tips on how to add the ingredients to get the same look as the photo.
