Case in point: These seven delicious, dairy-free smoothies. Enjoy!
Can you ever go wrong with chocolate and nut butter? Made with frozen bananas, chocolate protein powder, gluten-free oats, and a big dollop of almond butter, the thought of this smoothie during your next run (or meeting) might just help you find the motivation you need to finish strong.
If you’re not keen on the bitterness of grapefruits but still want to take advantage of their health benefits, this is the smoothie for you. It's naturally sweetened with banana and super creamy, thanks to avocado. Blended with some chilled green tea, this smoothie will give you more energy than your morning cup of coffee.
This smoothie bowl is so creamy, you’d swear it contained dairy. But don’t be fooled—blended bananas, cashew milk, and a generous scoop of cashew butter are what makes it smooth, sweet, and satisfying.
Even if you’re not feeling under the weather, this smoothie bowl is a great way to keep your immune system strong. Chia seeds provide a dose of healthy omega-3 fatty acids and fiber, which will help keep you feeling full for hours.
Hello, antioxidants! But health benefits aside, this smoothie bowl tastes amazing and can be dressed up with whatever toppings you like.
Pineapple is an excellent fruit for masking the taste of greens, and it adds a nice tartness to this smoothie. Garnish with some toasted coconut, close your eyes, and daydream about lying on the beach!
Using frozen blueberries and fiber-rich chia seeds for this recipe helps thicken the texture, which means you won’t need as much ice (it dilutes the flavor). Top it with more blueberries, almonds, and your favorite granola.
