Reneé Rapp is known for many things, including her role in “The Sex Lives of College Girls” andher stint on Broadway’s “Mean Girls,” as well as her latest single “Snow Angel” taking over the billboards. But acting credits and albums aside, Rapp is also known for being a superfan of the salad chain Sweetgreen. In 2022,a TikTok of her crying over her Sweetgreen order went viral, and since, then she has continued to be vocal about her love for the chain’s salads. “There is no Sweetgreen in Paris who do I have to kiss to make this happen,” Rapp once tweeted.
It comes as no surprise, then, that the actress and musician has decided to partner with Sweetgreen on a limited-edition salad. Appropriately named The Reneé Rapp Salad, the new menu item is inspired by Rapp’s go-to Sweetgreen order. Like the one she went viral for in 2022, The Reneé Rapp Salad consists of cabbage, tofu, cucumber, tomato, broccoli, and cilantro, but instead of rice, it calls for spring mix salad leaves, in addition to spicy cashew dressing. “I switched from lime cilantro jalapeno vinaigrette with hot sauce to the spicy cashew, which was a big deal in my household”.
“I don’t switch up at all. I eat the same things every single day pretty much,” the “Tummy Hurts” singer explains. “Being that I have a sensitive stomach, I can only eat certain things. So a lot of the bowl is just based on what my body can be fueled by during the day and at night.
The Reneé Rapp Salad is currently available at all Sweetgreen locations from now until Oct. 23, but if you don’t live anywhere near Rapp’s favorite salad joint, it’s worth re-creating at home.
To properly replicate it, you’ll have to nail the spicy cashew dressing, roasted tofu, and spicy broccoli. Luckily, Sweetgreen has publicly shared the recipes for bothits dressing andits tofu on TikTok, while one employee divulged the recipe for the spicy broccoli on Reddit. The key ingredient in each one seems to be the “signature umami blend.” (You can find a similar seasoning at Trader Joe’s, and on Amazon, and spice brand McCormick also sells a version of it.) When you put all these components together, you end up with a hearty salad with a bit of heat and a satisfying crunch. It’s easy to see why Rapp orders it so often because it’s that tasty.
To learn how to make The Reneé Rapp Salad yourself, check out the full recipe below.

The Final Verdict
If you’re looking for something fast, uber-healthy, and far from heavy, the guilt-free Reneé Rapp Bowl is just the front-row ticket you seek. While it’s hard to imagine this salad being filling for eaters with hearty appetites, you’ll feel rather good after eating one. It’s a nice change of pace, even for us.
As for how this bowl lines up with the sweet sounds of Reneé Rapp’s music? We don’t want to “Talk Too Much,” but it’s safe to say it won’t cause any “Tummy Hurts,” as it’s far from being “Poison Poison.” So, What Now? Well, we suggest grabbing this tasty new salad soon, because it won’t be on tour forever.
Erewhon has been going off with celebrity smoothie collabs, and we’re here for it. From Hailey Bieber to Becky G, the beloved Los Angeles supermarket has been cranking out fun new drinks; and if you follow Erewhon or its many devotees on TikTok, it’s hard not to want to try them all.
Model and entrepreneur Miranda Kerr is the latest to drop a smoothie with the market, and she’s doing so to promote a new product in her skin-care line, Kora Organics. The smoothie is launching in tandem with the new Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Moisturizer ($66); smooths wrinkles and firms skin while providing a boost of antioxidants and moisture-locking actives. A portion of the smoothie proceeds will go to the Organic Farming Research Foundation, which supports education and empowers the use of sustainable organic harvesting practices. (We love to see those smoothie dollars going to a good cause!)
Unfortunately, for those of us who don’t live in Los Angeles, Erewhon smoothies aren’t exactly accessible. And for those who do live in LA, the $17-$19 price tag makes them less accessible than most smoothies. Luckily, we secured the recipe (and made a few tweaks), so you can easily make this smoothie on your own.
While Erewhon smoothies are typically chock-full of niche superfoods or supplements (such as spirulina, collagen, lucuma, and more), the base ingredients are often easy to find at your local grocery store. While you may not be able to find every ingredient, you can still re-create each smoothie’s delicious flavor, and maybe even find a new favorite smoothie recipe. We already know the frozen antioxidant-rich Sambazon Açaí Superfruit Packs ($8), this recipe is already going to be a new freezer staple.
To get the gorgeous Erewhon effect (we couldn’t resist), swirl the bottom half of the glass with coconut yogurt and E3Live Blue Majik ($45) spirulina extract, and top with a scoop of coconut cream and more spirulina sprinkles. Sweet sipping!
Category: Drinks; Smoothies Yield: 1 smoothie Total Time: 5 minutes
Smoothie: 1 frozen banana 1/2 cup frozen blueberries 100 grams frozen açaí 1/4 cup coconut water 1/4 cup almond milk 1 tablespoon maple syrup 1 serving (about 1 tablespoon) vanilla collagen creamer 1/4 cup coconut cream (optional)
If you’re going for the optional swirl, spread the coconut yogurt around the bottom half of the glass and sprinkle with spirulina extract.
To make the smoothie, combine all the ingredients, in the listed order, in a blender and blend until smooth. (Note: This recipe was slightly too large for my personal blender, so I had to use a full-sized one.)
Pour the smoothie over the coconut swirl.
Top with a scoop of coconut cream and more spirulina extract, if desired. Enjoy!
Not only is the smoothie delicious and chock-full of premium ingredients that will make your skin glow, but all net proceeds will go to the Organic Farming Research Foundation in support of educating and empowering sustainable organic harvesting practices. We’ll drink to that!
An organic retinol alternative, the moisturizer is gentle enough to be used day and night and is formulated with antioxidant-rich Acai Stem Cells, rosehip oil, a natural peptide and ceramide blend, and a 5% active retinol alternative blend of bakuchiol and alfalfa.
Miranda Kerr’s KORA Glow Smoothie is available at all Erewhon locations and costs $19. It features a ton of nourishing and healthy ingredients that are inspired by the brand’s age-defying range including pure coconut, organic almond milk, vanilla plant-based collagen boost, blueberries, pitaya powder, and more.
If you’re going for the full Erewhon Instagram effect, we recommend freezing the scoop of coconut cream beforehand, so it stays intact. We know it sounds extra, but it saves you from flat coconut cream, which is what we ended up with the first time we made this delicious healthy smoothie.
An easy, delicious, and healthy snack? Check, check, and check.
And we’re dropping the deets.
Nikki Kovacs of My Sweet Belly is all about whole foods and healthy living, and her apple nachos recipe is the perfect gateway snack to clean eating. With just one apple, some seed butter, a sprinkle of chocolate chips, and a drizzle of honey, you’re on your way to a yummy and filling afternoon.
A couple of tips: For those watching their glucose levels, opt for agave instead of honey. If you’re eating a raw diet, swap out the chocolate chips for cacao nibs.
1 large Honeycrisp apple 1 tablespoon sunflower seed butter 3 tablespoons mini vegan chocolate chips or cacao nibs 1 tablespoon date syrup or honey
1. Wash and dry the apple and cut into slices. 2. Arrange apple slices on a board or plate. Drizzle slices with sunflower seed butter and honey. 3. Sprinkle apple nachos with chocolate chips or cacao nibs. Enjoy!
