When you’re in a mad rush in the morning to get out the door, you might not be thinking about making a balanced, healthy breakfast. We know you know how important it is to fuel your body for the day ahead, which is why we’re all in for smoothies to help you power through your day. Smoothies are a ridiculously easy way to add protein, fiber, and other important nutrients to your diet, all with the push of a button on your blender.

That’s why we love these incredible vegan smoothie recipes that are perfect for both vegans and meat-eaters alike. We know it’s tough for anyone to find time to eat a filling breakfast, but it’s especially crucial if you’re a vegan to get enough protein in your diet.

These vegan smoothie recipes provide the important nutrients you need to start your day off right, and they’re as easy as chopping up a few fruits and veggies, hitting a button on your blender or food processor, and yum!

3Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

Who's in the mood for a vegan mint choc chip deliciousness? 🍫 Quem tá no mood de uma delícia vegana choc chip de menta? 🍃 . . . Saw a similar smoothie the other day on @buzzfeedtastyveg and decided to give it a similar try! I always have a daily afternoon dosis of tofu and fruit to keep my protein levels up 💪🏻 but this week I have PMS so chocolate cravings are HIGH 😂 If you are going through it or are just a choc lover this is it: • 150g soy yogurt or silken tofu • a bit of vegetable milk • about 5 to 6 mint leaves • 4 vegan chocolate squares • one banana (ripe, to make it sweet!) • 1 tbs cacao blend it and enjoy! . . . Vi um smoothie desses no @buzzfeedtastyveg e decidi testar! Sempre como uma dose de tofu com fruta durante a tarde pra controlar os níveis de proteína 💪🏻 mas essa semana a TPM tá atacando e a vontade de chocolate também 😂 Se você também tá nessa ou se é um amante do chocolate vem comigo: • 150g iogurte de soja ou tofu soft • leite vegetal pra dar ponto • 5 ou 6 folhas de menta • 4 cubos de chocolate vegano • uma banana (bem madura pra deixar doce!) • 1 colher de sopa de cacau liquidificador e pronto! . #vegano #vegan #smoothie #smoothies #chocolate #vegansmoothie #veganfood #vegansofig #plantbased #plantpower #plantpowered #comidavegana #comidasaudavel #comidadeverdade #healthyfood #veganlife #veganlifestyle #foodphotography #fitnessfood #fitness #plantprotein #vegancouple #veganfoodshare #veganism #whatveganseat #snack #sunset
