Curb that craving for cake with this dairy free Birthday Cake Shake using our cashew milk! It’s the perfect sweet treat that is fun for kiddos and adults alike.

Birthday Cake Milkshake Made with JOI Cashew Base

The ingredients for this one are simple yet surprising. I find that mixing dairy free milk with ice can make it “icy” rather than creamy. Using frozen cauliflower rice as the “ice” here gives it the most amazing texture, plus its a vegetable! The other surprising ingredient is lemon juice. By giving the smallest squeeze of lemon you end up with a tang that perfectly mimics birthday cake batter. To get that intense vanilla flavor, a sprinkling of instant pudding does the trick.

Other fun add-ins include sprinkles, because it's a birthday cake! Top it with your favorite non-dairy whipped topping and you’ve got yourself a birthday cake shake. The cashew milk is perfectly smooth and adding a touch of cashew butter creates the richness you look for when sneaking a taste of cake batter. So let’s make a Birthday Cake Shake!


¼ cup JOI cashew base (or substitute JOI almond or creamer base)

1 cup water (or substitute part ice cubes)

2 Tablespoons instant vanilla pudding

½ cup frozen cauliflower rice 

Juice of ½ lemon

2 teaspoons agave syrup, optional for sweetness (or substitute your sweetener of choice, such as maple syrup)

pinch of sea salt

¼ cup sprinkles (vegan)

How To Make It
