Mixed berry smoothie bowl recipe | ft Pacifica

Vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free, quick & easy

Lately, I've been a little obsessed with smoothie bowls on Instagram, and had to create my own.
I've created this delicious mixed berry smoothie bowl, which is creamy and packed full of fresh, fruity flavour.
I've collabed on this recipe with Pacifica Beauty.
Pacifica is a cosmetics and haircare company. Their products are 100% vegan, natural & cruelty-free.

I am the biggest fan of Pacifica products and created this pretty mermaid smoothie bowl based on their Mineral highlighter. It tastes incredible and how pretty does it look, I'm obsessed!!!
Also, can we take a second to appreciate how cute this highlighter is! Loving the packaging (as always with Pacifica products) but the pigment is lovely! It's a perfect shade for my pale skin.
This smoothie bowl is quick & easy to make, healthy and only requires few 'easy to find' ingredients to make it. PS- all of the fun is all in the decorating.

Preparation- 5 minutes
Freezing time- Overnight
Serves- 2
Level- Easy

-2 bananas (Frozen)
-20g of raspberries (Frozen)
-10g of strawberries (Frozen)
-1 tablespoon of almond milk
-1/2 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste (You can use vanilla extract)
-1/4 teaspoon of pink food colouring (optional)

To garnish (optional)
-Dragonfruit balls
-Vegan marshmallows 
-Vegan sprinkles

Step 1- Place the frozen bananas, mixed berries, almond milk, vanilla extract into a food processor/blender and whizz up until creamy. Add in the pink food colouring for a brighter pink colour (Optional).

Serve in a bowl and top off with some strawberries, dragon fruit balls, blackberries, marshmallows and sprinkles.

Best served fresh & store in the freezer like you would ice cream.

Vegan caramel coffee cake recipe

Vegan, easy 

As I'm writing this, it's my sisters birthday! Happy birthday Naomi 🎂
I had to create a cake for her I know she would love. We are the biggest coffee fans so it only seemed right I made her a special over the top coffee cake. I know she loves caramel frappuccinos, so I went to Starbucks and picked up a clear caramel syrup which they use in the drinks (and is vegan, yay) and decided to use it in this cake to give an authentic coffeehouse touch.
