Vegan Berry Smoothie


“I love this vegan smoothie because it is loaded with nutritious ingredients, like spinach, banana, blueberries, chia seeds, pea protein, and soy milk at only 277 calories per serving. It packs 9 grams of fiber and 21 grams of protein!” says Braslow.


  • 1 cup Spinach all varieties raw
  • 1/2 medium, about 7″ long Bananas raw
  • 1 tbsp Chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup, unthawed Blueberries frozen unsweetened
  • 1/2 scoop Generic Pea Protein Powder

Mexican Chocolate Breakfast Shake

Oh My Veggies

This oat-based shake is packed with tons of flavor thanks to cocoa powder and cinnamon, plus plenty of fiber thanks to added banana.


  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup almond, soy or coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Agave nectar, honey, maple syrup or other sweetener, to taste (optional)
  • 1 small banana, cut into pieces and frozen overnight in a freezer bag

Combine the oats, milk, cocoa powder, cinnamon and sweetener in a resealable bowl. Stir together, cover and refrigerate overnight. Add the banana and oat mixture to a blender and blend until completely smooth. If the shake is too thick, add more milk for a thinner consistency; if it’s not sweet enough, add more sweetener.

Green Spirulina Smoothie

Nutrition in the Kitch

“Spirulina is a powerhouse of nutrients. It’s low in calories, high in vitamins and minerals, and it is a complete protein meaning it contains all the amino acids,” says Stephanie Ferrari, MS, RDN, registered dietitian nutritionist at FRESH Communications. “Here’s the catch – it simply does not taste good on its own (for most people, at least). Adding spirulina to a fruit smoothie like this one is a great way to reap the benefits of spirulina in a way that tastes good!”


  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 tsp spirulina powder
  • 1/2 cup natural orange juice
  • 1/2 cup plant milk of choice (I used oat milk, other options: almond, cashew, soy, rice, etc.)
  • ½ avocado (pitted and peeled) OR 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 2 scoops collagen peptides OR vanilla plant based protein powder of choice


Add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend for 30 seconds or so until completely smooth. Divide between two glasses and serve. Enjoy!
