My Go-To Nourishing Vegan Smoothies

Today we’re talking recipes! There are a million and one AMAZING smoothie recipes out there and they all do something different for your body. Some are high protein for post-workout, some are supposed to make your skin glow or your heart sing and there’s *even* smoothies out there with a woman’s placenta blended up inside to aid (that same woman) with postpartum hormone regulation.  I'm not completely vegan, but the reason I'm sharing vegan recipes with you is that there is a strong argument for vegan-ism being the most sustainable diet for our planet (as far as production and emissions go, etc). While I plan on diving into that topic at a later date, for now I'll share these because they're truly delicious and I truly consume them on a weekly basis!


There’s so many options it can be overwhelming, and I am NOT here to add to the noise! I just make the same two smoothies week in and week out with the occasional experimenting deviation, but I rarely stray because the two I’ve developed over time are tried and true and worth your attention.


The two recipes I’ve got for you today are for a Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Shake, and a good ol’ Green Smoothie! I like to keep things to less than 10 ingredients and I usually always have the same ingredients on hand so it makes the routine quite simple. Stocking the freezer with extra over-ripe bananas (ALWAYS cut them into little dollar slices, trust me!) and frozen pineapple or mango ensures that you’re always ready when the smoothie craving calls!






PB Choc Banana Smoothie

Yield: 1 (Large) Serving


1 Cup Fresh Spinach or Kale

1 Cup Alternative Milk (I use cashew but almond and coconut are great as well!)

2 Tbsp Peanut Butter

1 Scoop Plant Based Chocolate Protein Powder (I use Tropeaka Lean Protein)

1 Scoop Raw Cacao Powder

1/4 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Hemp hearts

1 Frozen Banana

(Optional) Splash of iced coffee

Method: Add all ingredients to the blender in the order mentioned, blend and enjoy.







Daily Green Smoothie

Yield: 1 (Large) Serving


2 Cups Fresh Greens (Spinach, Kale, Microgreens, etc)

1 Knob Fresh Peeled Ginger

Juice of 1/2 Lemon

1/2 Green Apple

1 Cup Filtered Water

1/2 Cup Frozen Mango/Peaches/Pineapple (or a mix of the three)

(Optional) 1 tsp hemp hearts

(Optional) 1 tsp ground flax seed

Method: Add all ingredients to the blender in the order mentioned, blend and enjoy.



That’s it! Super simple, nourishing, all plant-based and delicious! Adding that splash of coffee or swapping the PB for cashew butter are a few variations that’ll really send your smoothie over the top!

Let me know if you try these & have a great week!
