Plant Based Protein Shake

This Plant Based Protein Shake is filling and amazing, and packed with 25g of plant based protein!

I like to have the entire shake as a meal replacement protein smoothie. But you could split it with someone to lower the calories and enjoy it as a snack.

Ingredients for Vegan Protein Shakes

I like to get frozen berries, they are usually cheaper and they are already frozen. Frozen fruit will thicken up your protein smoothie, plus it keeps it extra cold without having to add in ice that will just water down the flavor.

I also like to slice and freeze the bananas ahead of time. In fact, anytime a banana is “past its prime” (basically any spots- picky kids) I slice it and add it to the freezer. This means I always have frozen bananas for smoothies, and never have to throw them out.

How to Make Vegan Protein Shakes

It may seam strange that I have blender cleaning as part of the directions. But hear me out… I have written 100’s of smoothie recipes and I know a think about cleaning blenders.

If you let the ingredients set in the blender for more than 10 minutes, they stick and make cleaning a nightmare. But if you rinse it out (you can still scrub it later!) right away, cleaning is super easy.

  2. Pulse to get everything moving, then blend for 1 minute, adding more plant based milk 1/8 cup at a time to reach your desired thickness.
