What is a magic shell smoothie bowl?

The magic shell smoothie bowl trend started on TikTok when Halle Burns (@ballehurns) shared a viral video that’s been viewed over 8 million times.

The smoothie bowl is made by creating a thick fruit smoothie and then topping it with a chocolate coconut oil mixture that quickly hardens to create a shell.

Ingredients You’ll Need

It’s super easy to make this smoothie bowl.

All you’ll need is two cups of your favorite frozen fruit (I used banana and strawberry), 1/2 cup of almond or oat milk, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 2 tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder, and 2 teaspoons honey or agave.

A bowl of frozen bananas and strawberries, a measuring cup with almond milk, a small bowl with coconut oil, a small bowl with cacao powder, and a small bowl with honey.

Tips for this Recipe

  • Once you’ve blended your smoothie, you’ll need to work quickly as it will begin melting. So have all your magic shell ingredients out on the counter, measured out before you start blending the smoothie!
  • For the vegan version of this recipe – use agave or cane sugar, instead of honey.
  • You can use any frozen fruit you like to make your smoothie, but if you use fresh fruit the smoothie will be too loose and the magic shell will sink to the bottom when you pour it on.
Yield: 1 bowl
