Every Day Smoothies #VEGAN

Smoothies are an essential part of my morning, and I’ve found so many wonderfully delicious combinations that I thought I would share them with you beautiful people!!! It’s important to note that if you’re replacing a solid meal with a smoothie, you need to make sure you’re packing in as much energy and nutrients as you can. My two top tips are: 1)Don’t skimp on the bananas, and 2) Don’t rely on protein powders. All these recipes make a full large blender, but I don’t recommend sharing 😉

Let’s get started!!!

 

Brandi’s Great Banana Date

We’re kicking things off with the cream of the crop. This recipe is extra special because it was created and perfected by one of the most inspiring ladies I know. Check this Vegan babe out on Instagram @brandi.lea for everything fitness and nutrition!!!

20 dates

10 bananas

1 cup of almond milk

1 cup of coconut milk

1/2 cup of coconut water

a dash of cinnamon

Classic Strawberry Banana

4 sliced bananas

2 cups frozen strawberries – I use the organic sliced ones from Costco)

2-3 cups of coconut water or juice – I prefer the Coconut Mango water from Sun Rype, it really adds something special to it. Otherwise orange juice is perfectly acceptable.

Raspberry Romance

4 sliced bananas

1 large carton of fresh raspberries – probably equivalent to 3 cups

1 cup ice

3 cups almond or soy milk – I actually use cashew milk as I find it has the most neutral flavour. Just use what you love ❤

MODIFICATIONS:

For an extra tasty treat, substitute regular soy milk for chocolate!

 

Tropical Twist

4 sliced bananas

2 cups frozen mango

3 cups coconut mango water

Creamy Avocado Strawberry

2 ripened avocados

3 cups frozen strawberries

3 cups milk alternative of your choice

1 tsp vanilla

coconut sugar or sugar/sweetener of your choice to taste – I usually use appx 1/4 cup

You want to be sure to mix extra thoroughly for this one. It should come out mostly pink, with a thick and creamy consistency. When sweetened accordingly, it’s quite similar to strawberry ice cream!

 

Perfect Perk Me Up

I’ll preface this one by clarifying that if you’re eating enough plant-based whole foods, you really shouldn’t need to rely on stimulants like caffeine to get through your day. However, I know a lot of people enjoy a boost in the morning and I’m here to please. Just please don’t use tea and coffee to suppress your appetite for fruits sake!!!

3 sliced bananas

2 cups kale or spinach

1 cup green tea/ Maca powder

2 cups coconut milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup ice

 

Easy Breezy Blueberry

4 sliced bananas

3 cups frozen blueberries

3 cups milk alternative of your choice

1 tsp vanilla
