Vegan smoothie recipes

Smoothies are one of the quickest and easiest to infuse colorful fruits and vegetables into your diet. Make a good one and it’s hard to resist slurping it down! Do you eat mostly plant based? Many smoothie recipes have Greek yogurt or milk to make them creamy. But there are lots of tricks to make delicious purees that are 100% vegan.

Here are the top vegan smoothie recipes to try! These are the most flavor-packed, nutrient dense plant-based purees you can find. There’s creamy strawberry banana, and a nutrient-packed green spinach smoothie. There’s a bright and healthy celery ginger puree, and a vegan peanut butter smoothie that tastes like a milkshake. Ready to blend?

And now…the top vegan smoothie recipes to try!

Ways to add protein to a vegan smoothie

These vegan and dairy free smoothie recipes are full of fruits and vegetables, simply packed with nutrients! But because they don’t have Greek yogurt, they have less protein than their non-plant based counterparts. If you’re looking to load up on protein, don’t worry! Here are a few ways to add protein to vegan smoothie recipes:

  • Nut butter. The best way to add plant based protein to a smoothie: add a scoop of nut butter! Try peanut butter, cashew butter, or almond butter. For nut allergies, use sunflower butter. Keep in mind that it will slightly alter the flavor and color of the smoothie: so add just enough that it doesn’t overpower.
  • Chia seeds! Two tablespoons of chia seeds add 4 grams protein and 11 grams fiber to a smoothie (see this Chia Seed Smoothie).
  • Protein powder. We prefer adding natural nut butter, but protein powder is an easy way to load on the protein. Try a vanilla flavored powder to meld into the smoothie flavors. Again, don’t go overboard or the aftertaste will be overpowering.
