High Protein Vegan Peanut Butter Strawberry Banana Smoothie Ingredients:
Gather your ingredients!
Below are notes about the ingredients before we get into the full recipe located lower in this post on how to make high protein vegan smoothie:
- Banana – For the best results, we recommend a ripe banana that has been frozen. Not only will this ensure you have a naturally sweetened smoothie, but freezing the banana first leads to the best texture in the end
- Strawberries – We also recommend frozen strawberries, again for texture and taste. Frozen strawberries are picked at peak ripeness and then frozen quickly to ensure you get that delicious taste in every sip
- Oats – We are using rolled oats, also known as old fashioned oats in this smoothie. Oats are high in fiber which has multiple health benefits, but also added oats makes the smoothie more filling and keeps your hunger at bay longer
- Hemp Seeds – Hemp seeds are an excellent source of protein, but also magnesium which helps promote a healthy heart
- Peanut Butter – most of the protein in the smoothie is coming from the nut butter. Our first choice here is peanut butter. Beyond a high protein source, peanuts are an excellent way to get in healthy fats while being low in carbs
- Flaxseed – We are using ground flax for this recipe which is again a good source of protein, but also high in Omega 3s which vegans need to ensure they are getting
- Non-Dairy Milk – Any non-dairy milk will work in this recipe. For best texture and taste, we recommend a creamier non-dairy milk like soy or extra-creamy oat milk for example. If you are wanting the most protein out of this, use a high protein non-dairy milk. We do recommend that you use an unsweetened option.
- Dates – An excellent way to naturally sweeten a smoothie is with dates. They have a variety of health benefits, including antioxidants, digestive support, and boost energy.
If you’re using fresh bananas and strawberries versus frozen, we’d recommend that you add ice as well.
Substitutions and Variations
Any alterations to the above ingredients will alter the taste and texture of the overall smoothie.
- Banana – Bananas have a very distinct taste, so whether you need to omit for taste purposes or allergy reasons, a few ways to do so would be silken tofu, avocado, sweet potatoes, white beans (like butter beans or cannellini) or cashews.
- Strawberries – You can use other berries as well like raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc.
- Oats – Soaked quinoa, ground almonds and amaranth are good substitutes in smoothies for oats.
- Hemp Seeds – You can use more flaxseed or use chia seeds to replace
- Peanut Butter – Any nut or seed butter will work for this recipe, but be mindful that it may alter the taste.
- Flaxseed – chia seeds or more hemp seeds would be an alternative to flax
- Non-Dairy Milk – If you want to omit the non-dairy milk, then you could substitute water
- Dates – a good substitute for dates would be maple syrup. If still wanting to use a dried fruit, you could do figs or raisins.
- Protein Powder – If you’re looking for an even higher amount of protein in your smoothie, you can choose a vegan protein powder and add 1/2 to a full scoop depending on your needs
