Gut Healthy Lemon Cake for Just Thrive's Anniversary

Guest blog and recipe by Jacqueline Genova @well.n.strong.

May is Just Thrive’s Anniversary month! So I thought we’d celebrate with some gut-healthy lemon cake!

Gut healthy cake?! Is that the first time you’ve ever heard of that? Yes, it’s possible to have your cake and eat it too AND not wreak havoc on your gut. By tweaking some of your favorite recipes with healthier, more natural options and including Just Thrive Probiotic, you can treat yourself anytime you’d like with zero guilt.

To celebrate Just Thrive’s 11 year anniversary, I had to include their award winning probiotic that started it all! You would never know that there’s probiotics added to this tasty treat unless otherwise told. Just Thrive Probiotic is odorless and tasteless and can be added to just about anything!

I’m a big fan of incorporating (or you could also say sneaking) probiotics into some of my favorite dishes, because it’s a nice way to get in my daily supplements without having to swallow a pill.

Just Thrive Probiotic helps support digestive, immune, and total-body health, optimizes nutrient absorption, supports healthy energy levels, improves sleep, promotes clear skin, and encourages healthy body mass, among many more benefits.

Whatever your health and wellness goal, probiotics are a worthy addition to your daily routine!

Enjoy this anniversary with Just Thrive and whip up some gut health lemon cake for yourself. Share your photos with us by tagging us on Instagram @justthrivehealth! We would love to see them. We’ll pick our top 3 favorites to win a free bottle of probiotics!

Okay, let’s bake!

Gut Healthy Lemon Cake

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
Total time: 1 hour
Course: Dessert
Diet: Gluten & Dairy-free
Servings: 6


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together all wet ingredients until well incorporated.
  3. Add in the dry ingredients.
  4. Use a whisk to mix together until well combined, but careful not to over-mix. It shouldn't be runny, but definitely won't be thick either.
  5. Pour into your prepared pan(s) and add to the oven. Depending on the pan size, it may take a bit longer. For example, a 6 inch pan might take 45 minutes.
  6. Check with a toothpick to test if it’s finished. The top should be golden brown, and there should be no jiggling on the inside.
  7. Remove from the oven, let cool for about 10 minutes, then carefully flip onto a cooling rack and peel off the parchment paper. If you're making a sheet cake, you are welcome to leave it right in there and frost it in the pan for easy storage.
  8. Let cool completely before frosting. I suggest sticking in the fridge for about an hour to ensure it's fully cool.
  9. I used Miss Jones Baking Co. for an easy and fun frosting, then sprinkled Supernatural Rainbow sprinkles on top. You can always whip up your own too!
  10. Frost the cake once cool and enjoy!

With Love,
