Beginner’s Guide to Vegan Smoothies

Making smoothies is so easy and once you know the three steps to always follow you will be able to make any kind of smoothie!

  1. Two Cups Fresh Fruit

You can do a variety of different things for this but the best thing to remember is to always have about 2 cups fresh fruit. I tend to put 1 banana and then a cup of strawberries into mine but this can easily be changed to fresh mango, blueberries, or raspberries.

  1. Two Cups Frozen Fruit

Now to make the smoothie nice and chilled and thick it is best to add about 2 cups of frozen fruit. These can vary from any fruit you can find in the freezer section of the store, just really whatever you think will go best with the fresh fruit you have. You can always use ice for this part however I believe that waters down the smoothie.

  1. ½ Cups Liquid

The liquid is important to add if you aren’t planning on making a smoothie bowl for you to eat. I normally add ½ soy milk however you can add any kind of plant based milk or water you desire.

I also tend to add chia seeds or ground flaxseed into the smoothie just to get some extra vitamins. You can also add some spinach or kale to add some vegetables to it or acai or matcha powder always mixes in well.

Once you get used to making these smoothies over and over, you’ll no longer need to measure anything out! Make sure to experiment and try knew recipes and ideas.
