  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


Units Scale



  • Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour into an 8-ounce glass and enjoy.


Frozen Bananas: use frozen bananas instead of ice cubes for your smoothies. Once the bananas are ripe simply peel them, slice them roughly the size of ice cubes, and store them in a freezer-safe bag or container.

Dairy-free Milk Choices: try using my homemade cashew milk or oat milk for this recipe. 

Chia Seeds: if you don’t have flax chia seeds are excellent.

Nut Butters: add a scoop of almond butter or peanut butter to make this your post-workout shake. 

Sweeteners: if you don’t have dates you could use 1-2 Tbsp of maple syrup or honey. Please keep in mind that honey is not vegan, but some who are plant-based do use it as a replacement for sugar.

Greens: toss in some chopped kale or spinach for some added nutrition.
