Vegan Smoothie Recipe

Drinking smoothies are a great way to get some extra nutrients in your body without eating a full meal.   I have tried LOTS of different recipes (there are as many recipes as your imagine can conjure up!), but prefer this one over all the rest.  Best of all, it is a Vegan Smoothie Recipe that your non-vegan friends will also love.

Vegan Smoothie Recipe

Vegan Smoothie Recipe


  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/4 cup of full-fat coconut milk (the kind that comes in a can)*
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of water (depending on how thick you like your smoothies)*
  • Couple tablespoons of Chia seeds, flax seeds or pumpkin seeds
  • About a cup of frozen fruit -- I generally use nectarines, but any good fruit will work
  • Couple stalks of kale, collards or chard**


  1. Add liquid and seeds to your Vitamix (or other blend) and start blending slowly, increasing speed to highest level.
  2. Add fruit and veggies and blend until smooth.

*If you prefer, you can substitute the canned coconut milk and water for some coconut milk in the cartons in the dairy section — not the shelf stable boxes, but the fresh coconut milk.  I often have this on hand since it is my favorite type of vegan milk.  Of course, omit the water if you use this method.

**The type of veggies you use in your smoothie can vary greatly.  Depending on what you have on hand, you can use beet tops, spinach or any nutritious fresh greens.  I often use dried seaweed — as this is the only way I find it palatable!

    My go to smoothie is:
    4 Cups baby Kale
    1 Cup cold water
    1 yellow delicious Apple
    1 tsp Ginger Root
    1 Cucumber

    Toss it all in the blender till smooth. Drink. I do this 4-5 days a week for lunch. Quick and easy. Very nutrient dense.
