List of TOP Superfood Vegan Smoothies (recipes included!)

Sometimes, people think vegan smoothie recipes are drinks that cannot replace meals. What they don’t know, however, is that a recipe that doesn’t contain animal protein does not imply that it can’t replace a meal. For instance, we get protein from vegan protein powders, seeds, nuts and nut butters to get what we need. While ice and frozen fruits add richness for few or no calories; nut, seeds and oats can make tasty and fairly high-protein smoothies, too. It’s so simple!

For the vegan smoothies we will show you in this post, you can however adjust them any way you deem fit depending on what is available. Only ensure that for every smoothie you make, you are getting in protein and carbohydrates to replace a meal. You will certainly want to make a full meal out of these smoothie recipes because they are so delicious.
