Mojo food templates
For starters, we believe the best templates for creating food Instagram Reels would be the food templates within the Mojo app.
We have an entire selection of templates that are designed with unique features and transitions that are perfect for Instagram food Reels!
Why are they the best?
- Image cutouts: Perfect for making your final dish the star of the video.
- Special stickers: Our 5-star Instagram food template looks like a rave review.
- Recipe design: Perfect for laying out the steps of a simple recipe.
Check them out in the Mojo app. If you’re already a Mojo user, you’ll find these templates under “food.”
Let your dish do the talking with minimalist video templates. All you need is the dish title, a short description (maybe), and a mouth-watering image or video.
Minimalist video templates for food Instagram Reels are ideal for restaurants that have artistic dishes by top chefs. Use minimalist templates to showcase your signature menu items from appetizers to desserts. Another great way to use minimalist templates is for upcoming events.
If you’re already a Mojo user, we suggest using the “minimalist title 01” templates for this.
Sporty fitness templates
Sporty fitness templates for food Instagram Reels? Hear us out!
The main benefit of sporty templates for Instagram is that they tend to use very bold titles and special effects. When you’re creating a fitness video, you want a motivating, high-energy video.
The same goes for Instagram food Reels too! Make them impactful with bold titles, vibrant colors, and flashy transitions - everything you get in a sporty video template! Walk through your recipe with headlines. Highlight ingredients with short, bold text. Go from start to finish with engaging special effects from frame to frame.
If you’re already a Mojo user, sporty templates are called “sports titles” in the app.
Opener or intro templates
Think you can only use opener templates - templates with big headlines and bold images - to introduce yourself? Think again!
Opener or intro templates are some of the most eye-catching and stimulating video templates. Don’t just use them once!
They’re perfect for introducing new menu items at your restaurant. Just a single image and the item’s title will be enough to send your community straight to your door.
They’re also great to build excitement for an upcoming event, such as an in-person cooking class or Instagram Live.
If you’re already a Mojo user, you’ll find these types of video templates listed as “openers” in the app.
Headline video templates are great for driving people to your link in your bio (and beyond). They give you the power to relay important information that gets action from your viewers.
If you’re creating food Instagram Reels, these headline templates can be used to highlight new menu items or to tease upcoming content that you’re excited to share.
If you sell a food product or service, use headline templates when offering a juicy deal or discount.
The benefit of headline templates is that they are big, bold, and eye-catching. They’ll make your audience stop their scroll to read your headline.
If you’re already a Mojo user, these types of templates are listed as “headlines” in the app.
Other features for viral food Instagram Reels
Whether you use the food Instagram Reel templates that we mentioned above (or not), we want to highlight some key features that can be implemented into all videos created in the Mojo app.
In the Mojo app, you can easily generate captions once you upload your video.
We often suggest using auto-captions so that viewers don’t have to turn on their sound to watch your video. They will still get all the right information through the auto-captions, even if the video is silent.
If you ask us, auto-captions are imperative to a successful Instagram food Reel.
Use them when you’re walking through a recipe or educating people on a cooking technique. This helps more people learn and retain the information.
While object cutouts (AKA “background removal”) is best for products, you can definitely use it to highlight your dish!
The object cutout feature in the Mojo app is best used for top-view images of a plate or bowl. It also works well for showcasing a single food item in front of a 2D background.
Major food chains tend to use this object cutout technique in their ads - think Wendy’s and McDonald’s especially.
You can also use cutouts to showcase your staff, like your friendly dishwasher or all-star chef. Just get their headshot, and you’re gravy!
The benefit of using the object cutout technique is that it eliminates noisiness in the background. Your followers will hone in on the tasty food item (with nothing else to distract them).
Get cooking with the best template!
As you can see, there are a select few templates that are ideal for your food Instagram Reels. Luckily, all of these templates (and hundreds more) are available on the Mojo app.
So, whether you’re a home baker trying to grow your audience or a local business testing the power of online marketing, your Instagram food Reel template can make your break the success of your content.
