With that in mind, here are five delicious vegan smoothie recipes that include our vegan protein powder, Plant Protein Power. Whether you prefer chocolate or vanilla Plant Protein Power, you can have a healthy snack or meal replacement that tastes delicious too by trying out these recipes.
Sounds delicious, right? All you need is a frozen banana, 1 tablespoon of almond (or other nut) butter, 1-1.5 cups of your favorite milk substitute (any kind will do, coconut milk adds a nice flavor), and 1-2 scoops of chocolate Plant Protein Power. Feel free to replace the milk with water, if desired.
You guessed it, this recipe requires 1 frozen banana, 1/2 cup strawberries, plus 1-1.5 cups of your favorite milk substitute, and 1-2 scoops of vanilla Plant Protein Power. You can replace the strawberries with any fresh or frozen berry to create your own tasty tropical smoothie.
3. The Blue Popeye:
For this healthy recipe you’ll need 1/2 cup blueberries, a large handful of spinach, 1-1.5 cups of your favorite milk substitute (or water), as well as 1-2 scoops of vanilla Plant Protein Power.

- ¼ tsp each nutmeg and cloves
- Pinch each of ginger and salt
- Ice as needed
5. The Green Goblin:
Puree 1/2 avocado, 1 banana, 1-1.5 cups of water (or your favorite milk substitute) and 1-2 scoops of chocolate Plant Protein Power to create this smoothie which is not only yummy, but also full of natural, healthy fats.
