Ingredients for Blackberry Cheesecake Smoothie Bowls

The ingredients for these creamy berry smoothie bowls are simple and easy to find. Here’s what you need:

  • Banana. I recommend a frozen banana for the best texture. A riper, softer, and more brown fruit will be sweeter!
  • Raw cashews. Soak the nuts overnight for the best texture. this way, they whip into a fluffy texture without any grittiness.
  • Frozen organic blackberries. Sweet-tart, and SO good in smoothies.
  • Milk. You can use any non-dairy milk you like. I like unsweetened almond or cashew milk.
  • Dates. Pitted Medjool dates will give you the most flavor.
  • Lemon juice. this si the secret to achieving the tangy cheesecake flavor.
  • Vanilla bean. You can also use pure vanilla extract.

Smoothie Bowl Topping Ideas

You can top your smoothie bowls in so many different ways. I like to add extra fresh (or thawed frozen) black berries on top. You could also use sliced strawberries, raspberries or blueberries.

For crunch, add nuts or granola, such as Vanilla Fig Granola or Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Granola.

You can also add extra plant-based protein with coconut yogurt or almond or peanut butter.

Blackberry Cheesecake Smoothie Bowl (vegan)

  • Author: Remy Park


This creamy and rich blackberry cheesecake smoothie bowl tastes like dessert for breakfast but is sweetened with dates, not sugar, and is totally vegan!



1 large frozen banana

1/2 cup raw cashews (soaked overnight)

2/3 cup frozen Driscoll’s Organic Blackberries

1/4 cup non-dairy milk, more as needed

2 dates (pitted)

2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice

1/2 vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional Toppings

coconut yogurt to top

more blackberries


  1. Soak cashews overnight in filtered water and put your blackberries into the freezer the night before. This will help the texture of the smoothie and allow it to remain a thicker consistency.
  2. Add all your ingredients to a blender and blend until completely smooth and frozen blackberries and banana are broken down. Top with your favourite toppings and add an extra dollop of coconut yogurt to top for a little tang if you’d like.
