Cars 3 Inspired Recipe – Lightning McQueen Smoothie Bowl

Pixar Cars 3 Inspired recipe - Lightning McQueen Smoothie Bowl

Coming to theaters June 16th is Disney & Pixar’s Cars 3! To celebrate the third installment of Cars, I decided to make a vegan Lightning McQueen smoothie bowl! The smoothie bowl is made only with fruit and all-natural fruit juice, with the creamy texture of a sorbet. It is the perfect combination of sweet and tart. It is a red smoothie topped with orange and lemon zest, to represent Lightning McQueen’s racing stickers, and complete with a mango lightening bolt and number 95.


Serves 1

Smoothie Bowl Base:

-1 cup frozen cherries

-1/4 cup frozen pineapple

-1 banana

-1/3 cup 100% cherry juice

Smoothie Bowl Toppings:

-Lemon zest from 1 lemon

-Orange zest from 1 orange




  1. Using pieces of mango, cut a lightening bowl shape, and a “9” and “5”. Set aside
  2. Zest one lemon and one orange. Set zest aside.
  3. Blend all your smoothie ingredients together, then pour into a bowl.
  4. Top your bowl with your zest and then your lightening bolt, and 95.
  5. Enjoy your Lightning McQueen smoothie bowl!
