This Vegan & Dairy-Free Easy Blueberry Banana Smoothie is actually an update from many years ago, but it was too good to forget. It’s so easy! I used a total of six ingredients, plus a handful of baby spinach or kale (totally optional, but I bet you won’t even taste it).

Ingredients

My original recipe used soy milk, but I swapped unsweetened almond milk for this update. Soy milk adds nice protein, but I try not to consume it too much.

For my paleo or dairy-free friends, you could totally add a scoop of collagen protein to this shake, too. Vegan friends can add a scoop of vegan protein. It’s up to you whether it’s a snack or a meal replacement. I’ll list some of my favorite protein brands below.

I added a handful of baby kale to this Blueberry Banana Chocolate Smoothie, but you can use baby spinach for a milder flavor. Or, you can totally leave out the greens, it’s up to you!

This delicious Blueberry Banana Chocolate Smoothie could be a breakfast option, or perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. It’s cold and sweet and refreshing, and the chocolate flavor covers up any of the green flavor or color.

FAQs

Can I use a regular blender for this recipe?

Yes, but you won’t get as smooth of a consistency. And, if you use spinach or kale, it won’t get completely blended.

Can I leave out the coconut?

Yes, but I would add some kind of healthy fat, like hemp seeds or avocado.

Can I leave out the banana?

Yes, but it won’t be as sweet. You could use frozen mango instead!
