This vegan breakfast smoothie is packed with nutritious goodies to get your day started right! It is also a dairy free breakfast smoothie that tastes great!
Why am I drinking a vegan smoothie to begin with, right?
Well, for one, I think there are a lot of benefits to enjoying plant-based foods. I love using Silk’s new Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative for this recipe, which has 6g of plant-powered protein (how’s that for a tongue twister?) in each serving.
Silk’s Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative doesn’t have any icky cholesterol, and is made without artificial coloring or flavor.
I’m HUGE on knowing what’s in my food, and I feel good about making this vegan smoothie recipe in the morning.
Secondly, I live in Portland, so half of everyone I know has a beard and the other half is vegan. I like to keep both beard wax and dairy-free alternatives in the house for this reason.
Lastly, I’m drinking these vegan smoothies because they taste good! It’s not always easy to nail a creamy, delicious flavor with dairy substitutes, but this recipe totally satisfies my cravings.
Since we started our home remodel, I’ve been getting up really early and heading out the door first thing in the morning to go work on everything from demolition to electrical work.
I don’t have the time or energy to sit down and eat my way through a full breakfast… so I started blending all of it together in a smoothie, instead.
Yeah, that sounds kind of gross, but trust me when I say that it totally works! Here’s what I put in it: Silk’s Original Creamer (that stuff is amazing), a banana, frozen fruit, and one container of Silk’s Dairy Free Yogurt Alternative.
The smoothie comes out creamy and sweet without any dairy! I love that the whole thing (including the yogurt alternative!) is made with real fruit. It’s just the BEST way to start off my day.
On the weekends when the husband and I both go over to the new house, I make these vegan breakfast smoothies for each of us to sip on the drive.
Here I used Silk’s Black Cherry flavor of dairy-free yogurt alternative, along with some frozen blackberries. Other combinations I love are:
Tropical Pineapple + frozen peaches
Strawberry + frozen raspberries
Blueberry + frozen blueberries (I’m a blueberry purist!)
Here’s the Recipe!
- 4 ounces Silk Original Soy Creamer
- 1 (5.3 ounce) container Black Cherry flavor Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative
- 1 large banana
- 1/2 cup frozen blackberries
- Add the ingredients in the order listed to the bowl of a counter top blender. Blend until pureed and smooth. Enjoy!
