Copycat Hailey Bieber Strawberry Skin Glaze Smoothie



For those of you who have been around the blog for a long time, you know that I'm a Northern California girl through and through. I love my cold, foggy beaches, rugged landscapes, and misty San Francisco mornings. The glitz and glamour of Los Angeles never really appealed to me, even when I lived there. I'll take the Golden Gate Bridge over the Hollywood sign any day of the week.


But like all great cities, LA does have its own charms. The Hollywood Walk of Fame, film museums, the Griffith Observatory and Santa Monica pier. And apparently, $20 smoothies.


I don't usually jump onto TikTok trends and viral products, but I love a good smoothie. And since there is no Erewhon in Northern California (oh darn), the only way to try out some of these very well known smoothie recipes is to make them myself.



In honor of summer berries being their sweetest right now, I decided to make a copycat version of the strawberry skin glaze smoothie. Now since I've never actually been to Erewhon, I have no idea if this tastes like the original. But it was fun to try a new recipe and dress it up a little more than my usual smoothies! The addition of the strawberry glaze and smearing coconut cream along the edge of the cup is ✨ elite ✨.


So here's my version of this viral smoothie. Does it taste like Erewhon? No clue. But it is delicious and healthy, and that's all I can ask for out of my smoothies.




The original recipe calls for ingredients that I either didn't have access to or didn't feel like buying. For example, hyaluronic acid. Absolutely wasn't going to go on a scavenger hunt for that one. And vanilla liquid stevia. I haven't done enough research on Stevia to know what source it even comes from so I skipped that as well.


I've noticed that the recipes online are all a little different. Some call for collagen powder, some call for added sweeteners. But based on the reviews I've seen, the actual smoothie at Erewhon is quite sweet, and mine was a tad more on the tart side since I didn't want to overdo it with the sugar. Still delicious, but definitely not strawberry shortcake sweet.



Here is the TikTok of the original recipe that I used. And here's what I actually ended up doing:


Ingredients

1 cup frozen strawberries

1/2 banana

1/4 avocado

1 tbsp sea moss gel

1 scoop psyllium husk powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Honey to taste

1 cup almond milk

Coconut cream

Strawberry glaze


For the strawberry glaze

1 cup fresh strawberries chopped

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp honey


Instructions

  1. Start with the strawberry glaze. Place strawberries, lemon juice and honey in a small saucepan over medium heat. Use a fork or potato masher to create a smooth glaze like consistency. Take off heat and set aside to cool.

  2. Blend strawberries, banana, avocado, sea moss, psyllium husk powder, vanilla extract, honey and almond milk in a high powered blender.

  3. Spread coconut cream along the inner rim of your cup.

  4. Once cooled, spoon two scoops of glaze into the cup. Pour smoothie halfway up. Add more glaze. Top with the remainder of your smoothie.

  5. Enjoy!

It may not taste exactly like the original, but it is sure to be a tasty start to summer!

Hi, it's best to avoid stevia altogether, so good thing you didn't have it! It sterilizes people(not sure if you are planning to have kids in the future). There were studies done in the 1960's, where there was a noticed drop in fertility rates with people who were given stevia! Best to stick with good ol' honey or coconut sugar for natural healthy sweeteners.
