This Artist Made Smoothies To Match Pantone Colors


Artist Hedvig Astrom Kushner has developed a unique art project that involves blending smoothies to specifically match Pantone colors.

Here’s what Hedvig had to say about the project:

I make a lot of smoothies and noticed it kinda works like mixing paint. Add a strawberry, get a hot pink hue, add some spinach and get a subtle green. Pantone Smoothies is an artsy little project seeking an answer to the question: is it possible to create tasty smoothies in any Pantone color?

The process is pretty simple. I buy colored paper from a local art store, match it to a Pantone swatch, and make the smoothie to match whatever color the swatch is. Me and Mike photograph the fruit lay downs and smoothies using the colored paper as a backdrop, in a light box in the office basement.

The entire colorful series is up on her Pantone Smoothies website, but if you’d like to take a look at some highlights, you can check out a few additional pics after the break.



The recipe for “610U” features 1/3 mango, juice from 1/2 of a lime, 1/2 cup of coconut water, 1 tsp of honey, 1/3 avocado and 1/3 cucumber.




The recipe for “1895” includes three ounces of silken tofu, 1/3 cup of orange juice, 1 tsp of lemon juice, 1 tbsp of honey and 1/2 cup of raspberries.
