This Paleo and Vegan Cookie Dough Smoothie tastes like ice cream, but is healthy, nourishing, high in protein and contains hidden veggies.  It's perfect for any meal of the day!


  • 1 heaping cup frozen cauliflower florets (125g)*
  • 1/2 heaping cup frozen cubed sweet potato (80g)*
  • 1/2 ripe banana (75g)
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder**
  • 1 heaping Tbsp almond butter (sunflower seed butter for nut free)
  • plant based milk (add 1 Tbsp at a time, as needed)
  • handful chocolate chips


  1. Slightly defrost frozen cauliflower and sweet potato by warming in the microwave for 15 seconds.
  2. In a food processor or high powered blender, blend cauliflower, sweet potato and banana for a few seconds.  Stop to scrape the sides, then blend a few seconds more.
  3. Add in remaining ingredients (except chocolate chips) and blend until smooth, stopping to scrape the sides every so often.  Add more liquid as needed.
  4. Add chocolate chips to the smoothie and pulse a few times until combined.
  5. Scoop smoothie into a bowl and eat!


*Prior to making smoothie, steam the cauliflower and sweet potato in a steamer pot.  Freeze overnight or at least 4 hours.  When ready to use, slightly defrost the frozen cauliflower and sweet potato.

**If your protein powder is unsweetened, you will probably want to add some sweetener.  1-2 tablespoons of honey, maple syrup, monk fruit or even a couple dates are great Paleo options.

The protein powder I used is from Nuzest.  It is a pea protein with great flavor and texture.  Use my discount code: BAKEITPALEO for 15% off any Nuzest purchase.
