This Malaysian Makes Masterpieces Out Of Her Smoothie Bowls

Healthy eating has never looked so good - literally. Hazel Zakariya, a Malaysian research specialist by trade has taken the internet by storm one smoothie bowl at a time with her intricate masterpieces decorated out of superfoods. Currently residing in Auckland, Hazel seems to have nailed edible art on the head by creating safari animals, TV show and movie characters and unicorns for breakfast.

So how did this research specialist turn into an internet sensation? Having said what started out as an accident, Hazel was initially trying to garnish her soup with swirls of coconut cream and then "saw the opportunity to turn the swirls and pesto into a tree instead." For Hazel, it's about practicing mindfulness and spreading joy through her creations.

Which bowls have been your favourite artworks so far?

This is a tough one, because each one of them has a story and meaning behind it – to me at least. If I had to choose, my favourites would the the Deer, the Wolf, Gus Fring from Breaking Bad and the apple pie smoothie inspired by René Magritte (Man with bowler hat).
