Vegan Smoothie Recipe with Plant Protein
By Dr. Josh Axe
July 29, 2021
Whether you follow a vegan/plant-based diet or not, a well-designed protein smoothie can serve as a convenient and filling breakfast or snack option.
Vegans may benefit even more than the general population from the addition of a health-focused protein smoothie to their daily routine, since it can sometimes be hard to get enough protein from plant foods alone.

Our protein-packed vegan smoothie recipe is about as simple as it gets, calling for only three ingredients: any fruit you have on hand, your favorite plant-based milk, and Ancient Nutrition’s Plant Protein+ powder (available in Chocolate, Vanilla and Berry flavors).
Because Plant Protein+ powder is made from a blend of real, protein-packed, organic superseeds — including hemp, pumpkin, sunflower, chia and flax seeds — you don’t have to add tons of extra powders or ingredients to make this a filling smoothie.
Our unique plant protein is free of added sugar, relatively low in carbs, and made from real foods without any fillers or additives. You’ll benefit not only from the protein in this vegan smoothie, but also the addition of botanicals and adaptogenic herbs like cordyceps, rhodiola, holy basil and reishi, as well as MCTs (medium chain triglyceride fats).
We’ve specifically added these ingredients for improved nutrient content, an appealing texture, and widespread benefits like support for healthy body composition, fat metabolism, increased muscle recovery and a positive mindset.
