They say that the first bite is taken with the eyes, but the food artists we’re looking at today, take this concept to a whole other dimension entirely. Just wait until you clasp eyes on the food art masterpieces we’re about to list for you below. You’ll never look at your food in the same way again.

She uses spices, syrups, candies, nuts, seeds, and other culinary delights to create her text-based masterpieces.

Rachel Lorton’s Psychedelic smoothie bowls

Smoothie bowls are instantly appealing because they are so vibrant and colourful. Even the ones where you just throw everything into the blender and pour messily into a bowl tend to look great. Rachel Lorton’s psychedelic smoothie bowls however, take things to a whole other groovy dimension. Rachel uses 100% natural ingredients, both whole and blended, and nothing more than a toothpick to create works of fruity art that look far, far too good eat. They really should be eaten though, because as they’re made primarily from fruits and vegetables, they’re also incredibly healthy. With bold and vibrant ingredients like Beetroot, pea flower, blended carrot, blueberries, and much more besides, you could happily start at her smoothie art for hours on end.

If it was painted on a canvas with paint it would be amazing, but the fact that it has been painted in a smoothie bowl, using natural ingredients like Matcha green tea, turmeric, and activated charcoal, makes it incredible. Hazel Zakariya creates works of art in smoothie bowls depicting cute and majestic animals along with characters from popular culture, both modern and historic. Her work is truly some of the most impressive we’ve ever seen.
