TOP 5 FAV Vegan & Gluten Free Smoothies.

So on my journey to stay fit and healthy. Cause your girl ain’t getting any younger I’ve come across some really, really good smoothie recipes. Normally my greedy self would keep the goods all for my own, but then what kind of Christian would I be? So I said to myself “self, what would my grandmother want me to do with these great discoveries?” And well … here you go:   

** Disclaimer: All of the below are vegan, gluten, and dairy free btw. 

BERRY BANANA BLAST  🍒🍌

  • ¾ cup Coconut Water
  • 1½ teaspoons Pure Vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop of Chocolate Plant Based Protein Powder or 3 tablespoons Raw Cacao Powder
  • 1 ½ cups Cherries (frozen, pitted)
  • ½ cup Coconut (organic, shredded, unsweetened)
  • 1Banana (peeled and frozen)
  • 4 fresh Berries of choice (Strawberry, Blueberry, or Raspberry)
  • add pinch Sea Salt
  • add handful Ice

*Recipe provide by veganspakles.com and tweaked to my preference.*
This one has a different taste than the others and in my opinion goes great mixed with any chocolate flavored protein powder. The cherry juice is strong enough to mask that powdery after taste. Add a bit of coconut shavings on top and you’ll have magic in your very hands! 

 

PEACH, ORANGE, STRAWBERRY SUNRISE 🍓🍊 

  • 8 oz Orange Juice
  • 4 Strawberries (frozen)
  • 1 Peach (frozen)
  • 1 Banana (frozen)
  • 1 Tbl spoon Chia Seeds

One of my personal faves! This one right here is great on a warm afternoon, sitting on the porch, enjoying the breeze. Because of the chia seeds it is very filling and the fruit make a very tasty. 

 

CLASSIC CHOCOLATE BANANA 🍫🍌

  • 1 Banana (frozen)
  • 2 tbl unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • ¼ cup non-fat Greek Yogurt
  • ¾ cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond or Cashew Milk
  • Splash of Vanilla Extract
  • Handful of Ice
  • add dash Stevia (optional)
  • add 1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (optional; for meal replacement)

Oh so good. One could also add a tablespoon or two of creamy peanut butter. I however, am not a peanut fan so I omit but still delicious either way. This makes a satisfying meal replacement as well. The chocolate just hits the right spot every time. Can we also talk about how bananas make the BEST smoothies?!?! 

HONEY, BROWN SUGAR, & OATMEAL  🍯

  • 1/2 cup gluten free Oats
  • 1 Banana (frozen)
  • 1 cup Vanilla Almond or Cashew milk
  • 2 tbsp Wild Flower Honey
  • 1 tsp Dark Brown Sugar
  • splash of Vanilla Extract
  • handfull of Ice

Super simple but with big flavor. Don’t go cheap on the ingredients either. Trust me you’ll want the good stuff in this one. I love it with a blend of the Almond & Cashew milk. It’s so creamy. I drink this slow and absorb all the greatness. 

GREEN GODDESS 🍏🍐🌿

  • 2 cups Kale (stems removed)
  • 1 cup Apple Cider (no sugar added)
  • 1 cup Ice
  • 1/2 cup Pear Juice (no sugar added)
  • 1 tbsp Flax Seeds
  • dash of Cinnamon
  • add Stevia to taste

Now this one is a little different from all the others. It’s a DETOX smoothie and it definitely keeps you flowing (if you know what I mean). I recommend having this 2 times per week MAX and at night. I love how refreshed I feel the following morning after this. It’s very light and can be a little tart, if you add too much Apple Cider, so use all ingredients to taste.
