Vegan Banana Blueberry Smoothie

Summers are always so much fun with all the outdoor activities like biking, camping grilling and beach games. One thing we need to take care of is our insatiable thirst and need to drink up cool beverages. No wonder all the fizzy drinks sell so much during summers.

I prefer to eat and drink healthy no matter what the season. It helps therefore to know recipes that are easy, healthy and drinkable. Smoothies to me are a cool and healthy way to quench your thirst and also pack in fiber and nutrients. What’s also cool about smoothies is they are so easy and you can blend your choice of fruits together. That way you will always enjoy your drink and of course keep it healthy too.

This recipe is quite popular at my home during summers. A vegan banana blueberry smoothie is energy packed and antioxidant rich. And works great for breakfast especially during summers.

Ingredients (serves 2):

• 1 Banana chopped

• 1 cup Blueberries

• 1 1/2 cups Rice milk

• 1 tablespoon broken Walnuts

• 2 teaspoons ground Flax seeds

• 1 tablespoon Honey

Directions:

  1. Chop the banana and break the walnuts if you have whole nuts available.
  2. Now blend all the ingredients together for about one to two minutes till you get a nice smooth mix.
  3. Leave the honey out if you don’t want to sweeten it further.
  4. Feel free to add ice cubes.
  5. Serve this energy packed drink for breakfast and you’re all set for the day.

    it sounds good. but honey isn't vegan. Vegans can use agave instead of honey. they are both good. i have tried both. agave just tastes lighter.

    Fellow writer, you may feel that you would rather save your votes for someone that does not recieve many votes. You may not be aware that votes from our friends and family members that vote only on our articles does not count as much as someone that votes for many varied writers. Although the crew at the Flaming Vegan will not reveal all that goes into the choice for Top Posts, the crew has written me revealing this information. To prove that the articles that receive the most votes, do not always make Top Posts, consider my recent article on pizza that received 13 votes, but did not make Top Posts! Again, consideration for your vote for my articles is appreciated!
