1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp tapioca flour*
1 tsp vanilla extract

Blue Sprinkles:
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tsps natural blue food coloring

Pink Sprinkles:
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tsps pitaya puree**

1 1/2 cup So Delicious Creamy Cashew Cashewmilk Ice Cream

Pink Cocowhip Layer:

**I took one Pitaya Plus pack, let it thaw to a liquid, and then used that for the sprinkles and both pink layers.

  1. Cake: Blend the water and dates until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients. Stir to combine.
