If you loved my take on Marianna Hewitt’s famous Erewhon Coconut Cloud Smoothie, then you are going to fall head-over-heels for this recipe! My Raspberry Coconut Cloud Smoothie is a bright, vibrant twist on TikTok’s favorite smoothie, but made perfect for the summer time! It’s gluten-free, vegan-friendly, refined sugar-free, and perfectly refreshing and delicious.
Friends, did you ever see that GORGEOUS, bright blue smoothie that was floating around TikTok a few months ago?! That smoothie was a collaboration between Marianna Hewitt, founder of skincare brand Summer Fridays, and Erewhon, aka the best healthy grocery store in the world. If you’ve never been to Erewhon then you need to go ASAP, because they are truly the holy grail of all health food stores. While they have every fun health food item you could ever want, they also have a killer hot bar and the most delicious smoothies known to man. Seriously.
But while their smoothies are absolutely delicious, they will also run you anywhere from $15-$20 each, making them… well, a luxury food item. Because I don’t visit my hometown of LA often, I always make a habit to stop at Erewhon and grab one when I’m in town. It’s a vacation treat! But when it comes to everyday life, we don’t need to be spending nearly $20 for a smoothie. That’s where I’ve got you covered. 😉
This smoothie uses all of the same ingredients that you can find behind Erewhon’s smoothie bar, but at a fraction of the price. Plus, with these ingredients, you can make several smoothies for the price of one. And I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a much better deal to me.
But deals aside, this smoothie is so delicious. It’s the perfect mix of creamy coconut, tart raspberries, and sweet bananas that truly tastes like summer in a glass! And, not to mention, it is packed with GUT-HEALTHY ingredients, so it feels just as good as it tastes!
This smoothie is the true triple threat: it looks good, tastes good, and is good for you. In fact, it is not only a healthy smoothie, but it is a GUT-HEALTHY smoothie!
I am so excited to share this recipe with you, in partnership with Seed, the maker of the amazing DS-01™ Daily Synbiotic, which is a huge part of my life, and their new PDS-08™Pediatric Daily Synbiotic, which is now a huge part of my boys’ lives.

But, back to this smoothie. Thanks to some help from my friends at Seed, and the Periodic Table of Microbiome-Friendly Foods, this smoothie was created with ingredients that will not only satisfy your taste buds, but that will also help you maintain a healthy gut microbiome as well!
As I mentioned earlier, this smoothie was crafted with your gut-health in mind. In this recipe, we’ll be using the following gut-healthy ingredients:
In addition to the ingredients above, we’ll also be using these other healthy ingredients:
Making this smoothie truly could not be any easier! Simply start by adding all of your smoothie ingredients (minus the coconut cream) to a high-speed blender like a Vitamix, and blend until smooth.
Next, place your coconut cream into a tall glass and use a spoon to spread it up the sides of the glass. This will create the cloud-like effect!
Pour the smoothie into the glass, and top with another dollop of coconut cream and chopped raspberries, if desired.
Serve and enjoy! This recipe yields one large smoothie, so double the ingredients if making it for two!
