Summer pavlova smoothie bowls

  • Written by Lala’s Plate and Califia Farms

“These are a festive treat inspired by one of my absolute fave desserts - perfect for the summer holiday Season! Healthy enough for breakfast, but tasty enough for dessert! It’s thick, vegan and extra creamy!! Specifically, the addition of Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk is the hero ingredient in this dairy-free smoothie recipe, it makes the perfect body and base that combines the rest of the ingredients!”


“So easy and quick to make it’s ready in just 5 minutes - you only have to throw a couple ingredients into the blender, decorate and let the magic happen,” says Lara De Bruyne (Lala’s Plate).
