This festive smoothie bowl is the perfect way to start your special day - especially for all the summer birthdays out there.  It is thick, creamy and tastes like cake batter!  It is garnished with all-natural sprinkles, coconut whipped cream, shredded coconut and frozen berries.  You can add a candle too if you want to make a birthday wish!

This smoothie bowl is refined sugar-free, vegan, paleo and gluten-free.


Units Scale
  • 4 large pitted Medjool dates (or substitute 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup)
  • 1.5 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup blanched slivered almonds or raw cashews
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free oats (optional for more cake-like flavor)
  • 2 frozen sliced bananas
  • 1 cup frozen riced cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened, plain plant-based milk (I recommend almond milk)*
  • Boost It: 1 tablespoon chia seeds, hemp seeds and/or ground flaxseed



  1. In a high speed blender, add all the ingredients except the frozen riced cauliflower.  Blend until smooth and creamy.  Add the frozen riced cauliflower and blend again until no chunks remain.  
  2. Taste and adjust sweetness and flavors as desired. Pour into a shallow bowl and garnish as shown in the picture.  Or, be creative and do your own thing.


*If you need to use more milk to get the blender going try adding only a little bit at a time.  If you use too much the smoothie bowl will be too thin and runny.
