Birthday Cake Smoothie




"Birthday Cake" flavoured ice cream is something I always look for when I am perusing an ice cream shop on a hot summers day (oh who am I kidding, any time of the year is a good time for ice cream). I can honestly say that next to good old fashioned vanilla, birthday cake ice cream is my favourite kind.  This smoothie tastes like the real deal - even I can't believe how low in calories it is!

Ingredients
- 1/2 cup vanilla frozen yogurt (throw in an extra 1/2 cup if you like your smoothies extra thick)
- 1/4 cup vanilla greek yogurt
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 2 tsp vanilla sugar
- 2 tbsp whipping cream, for garnish
- 1 tsp sprinkles, for garnish

Directions
Combine all ingredients in blender and blend.

Optional:  Top with a few tbsp of whipped cream & a dash of sprinkles

Enjoy!

  5. Has anyone had luck replacing the vanilla sugar in this recipe? Maybe with sugar free vanilla pudding mix or almond/vanilla extract? I don't have anything to make it with.

    1. You could use any sweetener to replace (honey etc.) but for the closest thing to vanilla sugar, use sugar with a splash of vanilla extract.
