20 Healthy Vegan Smoothies - The First Messpin it!

Warmly welcoming the season of non-stop smoothies with this roundup. I do drink smoothies year-round, but I crave them in a much more intense way once the weather starts warming up. Hoping that this roundup can offer you a bit of inspiration with your blended bev routine! Lots of different options here, plus a few links from some of my faves at the end.

Hot Pink Beet Protein Smoothie from The First Mess Cookbookpin it!

1. HOT PINK BEET, BERRY & ALMOND BUTTER SMOOTHIE

An unusual but highly cravable combination once you get used to it. This one comes from my cookbook, and I still drink it all the time.

Maca caramel frap (healthy delicious + #vegan!)pin it!

2. MACA CARAMEL FRAP

This one has a bit of a butterscotch vibe that tastes so indulgent, but it’s loaded with wholesome ingredients. A little spike of coffee makes this a good option first thing in the morning.

3. PEANUT BUTTER VANILLA GREEN SHAKE

This is my go-to smoothie base. Peanut butter, lots of baby spinach, and banana. It’s hard to go wrong because it tastes amazing, but is so nourishing too.

4. SUPER HEALTHY GREEN COLADA

All the tropical vibes, but with a little superfood twist of spirulina. You can’t even taste it, but you’ll still get all that deep green goodness.

5. HEARTY CHOCOLATE OAT SMOOTHIE

All the goodness of oats, almond butter, plant-based protein powder, and banana, but with a little touch of cocoa to take it up a notch.

Peach Crumble Shake with Chia - The First Mess (vegan)pin it!

6. PEACH CRUMBLE SHAKE

I’m a fan of oats in my smoothies, what can I say! This one has all those hints of the cozy summertime dessert, but with feel-good ingredients like chia seeds in the mix.

A comforting and familiar fruity blend with the added goodness of soaked goji berries and warm spices to shake things up.

raw banana bread shake // @thefirstmesspin it!

10. BANANA BREAD SHAKES

This recipe calls for a homemade walnut milk, which really takes those banana bread flavours over the top. You could definitely make it with whatever plant-based milk you like though.

Frozen Rosemary Watermelon-ade - The First Messpin it!

11. FROZEN ROSEMARY WATERMELON-ADE

Once the deep heat of summer sets in, I challenge you to find a more refreshing smoothie. The rosemary is unexpected and incredible here.

12. DOUBLE CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT ESPRESSO SHAKE

This one from the Blissful Basil Cookbook definitely inches toward dessert territory. The roasted hazelnuts blended into the smoothie bring out those Nutella vibes.

13. ROASTED STRAWBERRY COCONUT SHAKE

Worth the extra step of pre-roasting strawberries! Plus, you can always do a big batch once they’re in season. Perfect for topping Bircher muesli or smushing on toast.

Deep Tropical Vibes Green Smoothie - The First Messpin it!

14. DEEP TROPICAL VIBES GREEN SMOOTHIE

Mango, coconut, fresh ginger and orange juices. You can hide a good amount of kale in this glass of fruity and tropical goodness.

Super indulgent, but wholesome enough for breakfast. Coffee, peanut butter, oats, banana, and plant-based protein combine for early morning perfection.

I will happily enjoy this pumpkin smoothie all year. This spiced combination goes equally well with cooked and cooled sweet potato.

BEET & BLOOD ORANGE SPICE SMOOTHIE - The First Messpin it!

20. BEET & BLOOD ORANGE SPICE SMOOTHIE

More beets, blood oranges, and warm spices in a smoothie! I guess I just know what I like? LOL. That hot pink hue is hard to resist while we wait for local summer berries and other colourful seasonal fruit.

    You’re a mind reader! I came here this morning looking for a smoothie recipe (because your smoothies are always the best) and I’m greeted with this amazing list! I just made the pumpkin lassi and it’s incredible.ReplyCancel

    Styling smoothies is the bane of my existence, and I’m always in awe of how you style yours so artfully!!ReplyCancel

  • Jackie22/04/2019 - 12:16 pm

    This all makes me very excited for peak smoothie season. I get so overwhelmed at choosing a protein powder (#firstworldproblems)- any personal recommendations?ReplyCancel

    • Laura22/04/2019 - 2:43 pm

      My absolute favourite by a large margin is Epic Protein by Sprout Living. It’s minimally sweetened with whole leaf stevia (most plant-based proteins are way too sweet for me), and just has great flavour. I generally switch between chocolate and vanilla.ReplyCancel

      • Jackie23/04/2019 - 1:28 pm

        I’ll check them out, thank you!ReplyCancel

      • Ania23/04/2019 - 4:31 pm

        Hi Laura – are you able to recommend any that are not sweetened with stevia? I can’t stand the taste, and even minimal quantities ruin the experience for me.ReplyCancel

        • Laura24/04/2019 - 7:17 am

          Hi Ania,
          I honestly haven’t tried one that I like. Epic Protein by Sprout Living has an unflavoured protein in their lineup that doesn’t have any stevia in it, but it definitely has to be blended up with fruit, non-dairy milk etc. I wouldn’t recommend shaking it with just water and ice. I’ve heard that the flavoured protein powder from Bob’s Red Mill is quite good and it’s sweetened with monk fruit (not sure if you’re into that one).

            Thanks for your recommendations, Laura. I’ll give these a try for sure. I always add protein powders to smoothies, so I don’t care that it can’t just be shaken with ice. I haven’t come across the BRM you’re recommending – last time I picked up BRM pea protein powder (just pea protein as an ingredient), but I find it tastes a little weird, even when mixed with fruit into smoothies. I wish it were possible to buy single serving packets, but I think only Vega sells these, but even though they have tons of lovely flavors, they all do contain stevia.
