Can you ever go wrong with chocolate and coconut?
Made with chocolate protein powder, cacao powder, coconut milk, and coconut oil, 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 it’s super creamy, thanks to avocado (we’re always in the mood to give thanks to avocado).
Blended with some chilled green tea, this dairy-free smoothie will give you more energy than your morning cup of coffee.
If you’re looking for vegan alternatives to milk, we found seven options that hit the spot.
Blueberry muffins are a peak breakfast-in-a-hurry food. So, why not just cut out the chewing part? This is a vegan breakfast smoothie to end all others (except the other six on this list).
Gluten-free oats, coconut yogurt, almond milk, and, of course, blueberries make this smoothie, sweet, and satisfying.
Blueberries pack a hefty antioxidant punch and the frozen coconut cubes are a neat alternative to ice cubes.

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. This is, as they say, tropical as f*ck.

OK, now you’re just messing around. How can this be vegan? And healthy?
No dairy in sight and a wealth of nutritional benefits make this most-certainly-not-your-average peanut butter cookie.
Spinach, chia seeds (a great source of omega-3 fatty acids), cinnamon, frozen banana, and almond milk don’t seem like peanut butter cookie staples. Still, they all contribute to the all-round nutrition and, weirdly, the flavor and texture.
