By: , SparkPeople Health & Fitness Writer

From simple to sophisticated, there's no denying the power of the smoothie. Serving as an easy and fun delivery vehicle for greens, veggies, fruits, seeds, nuts, protein powder and just about everything else—let's face it, smoothies are here to stay. Whether you take the time to present your creations in a bowl with photo-worthy finishing touches or pour them directly into a to-go cup for the drive to work, we can all agree that there exist smoothie creations deserving of a moment or two of admiration for the time that has gone into these edible works of art.

The secret to getting fruit to stick to the insides of the glass is to pick a sticky fruit, thinly slice it, add those first, then add your other smoothie ingredients. Plus, when you're done with the liquid, you'll have an extra little snack left in your glass.

There's something stunningly beautiful about the perfect placement of frozen berries and tiny flowers on this purple dreamboat of a smoothie bowl. For those of you recreating at home, just remember to make sure your flowers are edible.

You can almost taste the joy that went into creating this simple, nutrition-packed, jolly green smoothie. Sometimes less IS more.

It's hard to feel blue with this delightful treat in front of you. Swap out the fruit on top to add your favorite varieties, grab a couple of spoons and share with someone who makes you smile.

Can you pick a favorite from this amazing lineup? How would you choose? Maybe you don't have to—looks like the question of what you should have for breakfast is answered.

They always say that you eat with your eyes first. If you're looking for a meal or snack that's almost too pretty to eat, try blending together frozen strawberries and yogurt for a simple base, top with a sprinkling of raspberries and pomegranate and finish with a touch of chocolate shavings for a little decadence in an otherwise serene smoothie.
