Vegan Berry Peanut Butter Smoothie

Thank you for sharing!

This vegan berry peanut butter smoothie is a creamy, tasty, and nutritious start to your day or anytime snack! Whip it up in just a few minutes to enjoy. This is a lighter smoothie with important nutrients for vegetarians like calcium and protein. One serving provides approximately 10 grams of protein and 232 grams of calcium in 163 calories (the nutrition estimate is from VeryWellFit – made with one-eighth cup each raspberries and blueberries and vanilla soy milk was used.)

Key Ingredients

Vanilla plant-based milk – I selected vanilla soy milk for this recipe. You can use light soy milk or a different type of plant-based milk if you like. What I really like about soy milk is that the protein content is 6 – 8 grams per 8 ounce cup, which is much higher than almond, oat, hemp, or coconut milk, Also, it tastes great! if you just have plain soy milk, you can add a little vanilla extract, like a quarter teaspoon, and a teaspoon of maple syrup for more sweetness.

Banana – choose a ripe banana. It can be fresh or frozen, but if it is frozen, defrost it for about 20 – 30 seconds in the microwave so it can be blenderized. I have tried making this peanut butter smoothie without banana, and it really wasn’t good. The banana adds considerably to the consistency of the drink, plus the sweetness.

I also tried using mango instead of banana, and that was not a flavor combo I would recommend in a peanut butter smoothie. But you could use a quarter to a half of a cup of plant-based yogurt, like coconut or cashew, in place of the banana. Vanilla or blueberry flavors combine well with the rest of the ingredients.

Berries – the recipe calls for just a quarter cup of berries for added color, nutrition, and sweetness. my favorites are blueberry and raspberries. I have tried blackberries, and they are good in it, however, the little tough pits were annoying. Fresh pitted cherries would be a good substitution.

Peanut Butter Powder – I really like using this for smoothies. A serving of 2 tablespoons provides 6 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber in just 50 calories. This has much less fat and calories than the same amount of peanut butter. The peanut butter brand I usually buy has 7 grams of protein with 15 grams of total fat and 190 calories. The powder is quick to measure and doesn’t stick to the blender blades, stick, or inside of the cup, making for quick clean-up.

I have tried this with chocolate peanut butter powder too. The flavor is good, but note that it tends to contain some added sugar and is a little lower in protein.
