This Raspberry Red Velvet Cake Smoothie is Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Non-GMO, Low-Carb, and Vegan (if you omit the collagen peptides). Yeah, it’s a lot of things.

Red Velvet Cake is something that I miss from the gluten-filled diet I used to follow many moons ago. The decadent chocolate flavor with the ever so slightly tangy twist of the buttermilk and lemon juice. My mouth is watering…

I must confess, I am not a big smoothie drinker. Drinking my meals is not something I enjoy, not to mention, raw bananas just seem to tie my stomach into knots. However, this Raspberry Red Velvet Cake Smoothie is creamy, rich, decadent, and free from bananas. Meaning it sits in my stomach without wreaking digestive havoc.

Seriously, what better flavor combination than Raspberry and Red Velvet Cake?

Pro-Tip: Frozen fruit can be expensive to buy. So save money, when you see your favorite frozen fruits go on sale, buy a bunch and freeze them yourself in freezer-safe containers or bags. For example, every fall raspberries and blackberries go on sale for 2 for a $1.00 in my area so I buy at least 10 and freeze them for the winter!

    • I love vital proteins and their products so I usually buy my collagen proteins from them! So happy to hear you love the recipe

    I didn’t know, back when I first heard of red velvet cake, that chocolate was a key flavour, I just saw this bright red cake and assumed red fruits! I love your idea to combine raspberries and chocolate in a smoothie, sounds so good!

    I’ve been enjoying smoothies more and more lately (trying to start this January off right!), and this recipe was really good. I love the addition of the cashew milk. Great flavor. Nicely done!

    This sounds delicious! and I’m with you, I prefer not to drink my meals, but this would make a refreshing snack. I’m not familiar with ColorKitchen. Do they make natural food dyes? Otherwise beetroot juice would be a delicious alternative!

    • Hi Catherine!
      Yes, their food dyes are all natural and come from plants. One of the reasons I love their products. Beetroot juice would also work well! If you try it, let me know. I’d love to hear how it turns out
