Quick Tips for the Best Vegan Protein Smoothie

By: Megan Mae


If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know my vegan protein smoothies are a breakfast staple. I love them! These guys are a triple threat: they’re easy, filling and a great way to get the much-needed vitamins and nutrients my body needs.

There are tons of different recipes out there, so as you find your smoothie sweet spot, I encourage to experiment with different powders, fruits and, yes—even chocolate. To help you get started, here are six tips for making a vegan protein smoothie I know you’ll come to crave.

Vegan protein powder is a must.

The core ingredient in all of my vegan protein smoothies is a scoop of vegan protein powder! Choose any brand you like, as long as it’s 100% vegan. I personally love using a vanilla protein powder because it mixes well with any other fruits or flavors I might throw in there. Just one note: I NEVER use whey protein powder, as it is known to cause bloating.

Say “no” to dairy.

Just like I never use whey protein powder, I also NEVER use dairy milk! For my morning smoothies, I add a cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. If you don’t have almond milk, coconut milk and oat milk are also good substitutes.

Make it berry, berry good.

Berries are a great way to add flavor and antioxidants to your smoothie. I typically add a cup of blueberries (they’re my favorite!), but strawberries, raspberries or even a mix of all three also works.

Always add greens.

Greens are important because they give us much-needed vitamins and minerals. Bonus: Add a few cups to your smoothie, and you’ll barely taste them! Spinach and kale are both great options. I tend to use spinach because I find that the flavor is easier to mask.

Give yourself a treat.

Got a sweet tooth? Add a little “chocolate” to the mix by using chocolate-flavored almond milk or swapping out vanilla vegan protein powder for a chocolate alternative. It feels like having dessert for breakfast!

Throw in a healthy fat.

Healthy fats—emphasis on “healthy”—lower our risk of heart disease and make us feel more full. To help get my quota of healthy fats for the day, I like to add a handful of walnuts or two tablespoons of chia seeds to my smoothie.

What’s your favorite way to make a vegan protein smoothie? Let’s experiment together.

To your health!
