I never make the same smoothie twice. I get bored easily! If you’re like me, some variety in your daily cup of goodness is ideal. In this roundup, I’ve got 25 healthy vegan smoothies for you to try out. I have even more available if you pop over to the Beverages category of my site. These selections just represent some of my favourites. Whether you need some new breakfast inspiration or a wholesome, quick snack for kids, I’ve got ya covered!

I also love boosting my smoothies when I can. It’s worth mentioning that my favourite vegan protein powder is Epic Protein by Sprout Living. This is the best tasting vegan protein by far. Not overly sweet, full of flavours like cinnamon and vanilla, dissolves perfectly, and the ingredients are really great. I have a 20% discount code for my readers! Use this at checkout: thefirstmess. Or, you can just click here and the discount will automatically be applied for you.

I’ve also been using Copina Co’s vegan collagen booster for a couple years now and cannot recommend it enough. My skin has been more evenly hydrated and my nails have never been stronger. Plus they all taste amazing and blend up silky smooth. The vanilla is my go-to.

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.

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.

An overhead shot of a peanut butter greens shake on a black background with ingredients scattered nearby. Included in a roundup of healthy vegan smoothies.

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.

An overhead shot of a deep green colada on a marble background in direct sunlight with harsh shadows. Bananas, pineapple, and coconut shreds are scattered nearby.

4. Deep 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.

A 3/4 angle shot of a chocolate smoothie that is garnished with toasted almonds and cacao nibs. It is photographed in harsh sunlight on a mottled white background.

5. Chocolate Banana Oat Breakfast 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.

Overhead shot of a peach crumble shake on a white wood background. Ingredients for the shake are scattered nearby, including: sliced peaches, rolled oats, and cinnamon. Included in a roundup of healthy vegan smoothies.

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 head on shot of a bright green ginger smoothie in a clear glass jar in front of a white background. Kale leaves and fresh ginger roots are nearby. Included in a roundup of healthy vegan smoothies.

7. Wild Ginger Green Smoothie with Coconut Water
So refreshing with the zingy ginger and fresh lime, and perfectly hydrating with the coconut water base.

Overhead shot of a deep burgundy shake in a clear glass jar. It is photographed in harsh light on top of a shimmery rock with matching, pink-burgundy magnolia petals nearby. Included in a roundup of healthy vegan smoothies.

8. Berry Beet Velvet Smoothie
Berries, coconut butter, raw cacao, and caramel-y dates. This one hints at rich red velvet vibes, and is boosted with a deep red, slightly sweet beet.

An up close, overhead shot of a light pink strawberry goji smoothie. It is garnished with soaked goji berries and a slice of dehydrated strawberry. Included in a roundup of healthy vegan smoothies.

9. Spiced Strawberry & Goji Berry Smoothie
A comforting and familiar fruity blend with the added goodness of soaked goji berries and warm spices to shake things up.

10. Banana Bread Shakes with Walnut Milk
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.

A 3/4 angle of bright pink frozen watermelon add in 5 different, clear glasses. Glasses are filled at the halfway mark and are on top of a marble background.

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.

An overhead shot of a double chocolate espresso smoothie that is garnished with chopped hazelnuts and cacao nibs. The smoothie is on top of a beige tablecloth with a small bowl of cacao nibs to the side.

12. Espresso Chocolate Hazelnut 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.

An overhead shot of a light pink roasted strawberry and coconut shake on top of a distressed wooden cutting board. A knife and cut strawberry tops/leaves are nearby.

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.

Overhead shot of 2 deep green smoothies in clear glasses on a light blue background. Kale leaves and squeezed oranges are nearby. The smoothies are garnished with shredded coconut and a piece of mango is perched on the rim of the glasses. Included in a roundup of healthy vegan smoothies.

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.

15. Coconut Blood Orange Lassi
It’s not secret that I love cardamom in a smoothie, but mix that with blood orange, sweet pear, and coconut yogurt? I’m done.

A head on shot of a thick peanut butter mocha smoothie that is rich, chocolate brown in colour. In the background, there is a clear bottle of homemade non-dairy milk and a big clear jar of oats. Included in a roundup of healthy vegan smoothies.

16. Thick Peanut Butter Mocha Smoothie
Super indulgent, but wholesome enough for breakfast. Coffee, peanut butter, oats, banana, and plant-based protein combine for early morning perfection.

An overhead and up close shot of a creamy beige beverage in a slim clear glass beverage on top of a gold, etched tray. The beverage is garnished with ground cinnamon and sesame seeds.

17. Tahini Shake with Cinnamon & Lime
An unusual, but super creamy and satisfying combination. The lime helps cut through the richness of the banana and tahini.

18. 5-Minute Spinach Banana & Ginger Smoothie
A whole two cups (!!) of spinach hides in this blend with fresh lemon, orange juice, cinnamon, and vanilla. Everything you need to kick start your day.

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

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.

21. Golden Peach Sunrise Smoothie
This vibrant and refreshing golden peach sunrise smoothie is creamy and sweet, a little bit spicy from fresh ginger and turmeric, with a hint of tart raspberry juice poured between the layers.

22. Creamy Vanilla Chip Smoothie
Like all of my smoothies, this one is naturally vegan, and also perfectly sweet, loaded with fragrant vanilla bean powder, cacao nibs, rich cashew and coconut butters, and is thickened with frozen pear instead of banana!

A head on shot of a light orange spring thaw smoothie in two glasses with a small vase of snow drop flowers in the background.

23. Spring Thaw Smoothie
This is the perfect way to welcome sunnier days returning. Carrots, citrus, and frozen banana combine with warm spices, nut butter, and non-dairy yogurt for a hearty and unusual vegan breakfast smoothie.

20 Healthy Vegan Smoothies - The First Mess
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings 1


  • 2 ripe peaches – pitted, sliced and frozen
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 pitted Medjool date
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • big squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, optional
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup filtered water



  • I used my cashew pecan milk for the non-dairy milk here. SO good! But any milk will due.
  • The lemon juice seems weird, but is necessary to lift up some of the oat-y, sweet flavours here. If you have orange juice around, a splash of that might work too.
  • I don’t want to sound too precious, but slicing and freezing ripe summer peaches is pretty crucial to the success of this one. The bagged frozen peaches in the freezer aisle have less peachy flavour and skew more towards neutral.


  • In an upright blender, combine the frozen peaches, oats, date, chia seeds, almond butter, lemon juice, cinnamon, vanilla, protein powder (if using) non-dairy milk, and water. Blend on high until thoroughly combined and frothy. It’ll be super thick! Enjoy immediately.

    Laura these smoothies are getting me through the early days of a new baby! So nice to have all these recipes in one place and always so complete. Thank you!

    Love all the smoothies. I am going to try each of these.

  • Vegan witch's kitchen

    Hi, the smoothies look is extremely devouring, and I want to gulp them all up simultaneously. Lol! But as I couldn’t, so I decided to make them all one by one during this summer, the first one I tried is Caramel Smoothie, and it was so delectable. Thank you for sharing the recipes with us.

  • Jackie

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

    • Laura

      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.

      • Jackie

        I’ll check them out, thank you!

      • Ania

        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.

        • Laura

          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).

          • Ania

            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.

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

  • Alejandra Graf

    The pictures are SO BEAUTIFUL. I’m loving them so much and also the recipe must be amazing.

  • Abby

    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.
