5 Sweet and Satisfying Vegan Smoothies

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Quick, easy and portable, smoothies are the perfect anytime treat. It's amazing how you can whirl a few ingredients around in your blender to create a powerhouse of nutrition that goes down easy. A smoothie is a great choice for breakfast, snack or dessert and can help pack more fruits and veggies into your diet. Another reason smoothies are so awesome is that they are so customizable. If you need a little extra sweetness, add a teaspoon of agave or maple syrup. Non-dairy milk or fruit juice can help you easily control the thickness of your smoothie. Want it creamier? Pop in a frozen banana. For easy blending, add the liquid component of your smoothie first and use the pulse option before turning it up to high speed. These cool and creamy smoothies are sure to satisfy anytime.

The Classic A great source of folic acid and potassium, strawberries may actually help to regulate your blood sugar thanks to their fiber and fructose content. The OJ and strawberries provide a dose of vitamin C which can boost your immune system and increase the absorption of iron. Try oat yogurt in this smoothie for a creamy way to add staying power to this smoothie which will keep you feeling full for longer.

To make it: blend 1/2 cup non-dairy yogurt, 1/2 cup frozen or fresh strawberries, 1/2 a banana, a splash of orange juice and a squeeze of agave.

Vegan Elvis You can't help falling in love with this awesome combo. Peanut butter adds a punch of protein and heart-healthy fats while making this smoothie luxuriously creamy. If you've ever wondered if you could have chocolate for breakfast, here's your answer.

To make it: blend one frozen banana, two tablespoons peanut butter, one tablespoon cocoa powder and one and a half cups of oat milk (or other non-dairy milk).

Spinach Spinner Green smoothies are all the rage for a good reason. They make eating your greens a breeze! The strong flavors of the fruit make the spinach almost undetectable to your taste buds. Dark leafy greens like spinach promote skin, hair and bone health and can help to prevent cancer.

To make it: blend 1 cup each of fresh spinach, frozen mango, and pineapple or orange juice. Add a banana and blend until smooth.

Sunrise Smoothie If you stayed in bed a little too long to catch the sunrise, this smoothie is the perfect substitute. Not only do they spin into a beautiful color, they have a light sweetness that will remind you of lazy summer days even if it's freezing outside. Because this smoothie only uses frozen fruit, it's easy to keep the ingredients on hand for anytime you need a little extra sunshine.

To make it: blend 3/4 cup of frozen peaches, 1/2 cup frozen raspberries, 1 cup non-dairy milk of your choice and a handful of ice cubes.

Blue Chia This smoothie will remind you of a blueberry pie, but you don't have to spend hours making it. Chia seeds are a powerful tool in your smoothie arsenal. They provide massive amounts of nutrients in a small package and are a high-quality source of protein. Chia seeds absorb liquid and add extra body to this smoothie.

To make it: combine 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1/2 cup non-dairy milk, 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen), a dash of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla extract in your blender. Let sit for at least ten minutes or overnight. Blend until smooth.

    Effective powerful love spell to get your Ex lover back urgently after breakup/divorce!. Hi everyone, I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again... All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you. Here’s his contact. Email him at: Call/what’s-app him: +2348160153829
