Vegan Protein Shake Recipes FAQ

1. What can I mix with vegan protein powder?

Depending on your preferences, you can drink your vegan protein powder with just plain water or plant-based milk. If you are looking for a tastier and more nutritious smoothie, you can add one or two fruits of your choice and some vegetables for extra vitamins and minerals.

Other ingredients you can add are nut butter and seeds for healthy fats and superfoods like cacao, maca, mushrooms and moringa for some added benefits.

2. What are the best vegan protein shakes?

The best vegan protein shakes for you will depend on your goals since they can offer a variety of benefits. While some are best for bodybuilding and muscle gain, others are best for weight loss. A great protein powder that works for every need is LivBody, it is high in protein and low in carbs and calories so it can support you in whatever your goals are.

3. What vegan milk is best for smoothies?

There is a wide variety of plant-based milks and they can all work great for your smoothies. If you are looking to increase your protein, soy milk is your best choice with 7g of protein per cup. Oat milk is also a good alternative since the best is very mild and works great with all recipes.

4. How do you make vegan protein shakes taste good?

If you dislike the taste of vegan protein powder, you can make it taste good by adding a couple of your favorite fruits. If it is the texture you don’t like you can add some nut butters as well to make it creamier and smoother.

I also encourage to try different protein powders since you might find one that you like better. Nowadays there are lots of amazing alternatives and you can find some that are both delicious and with a great texture so they can be drunk with just water or vegan milk.

What Protein Powder Flavor Should I Use?

While most of the recipes above will call for a specific flavor of protein powder, you don’t need to buy a different portein powder for each smoothie you make. If you have one you like at home, you can go with that one or use a simple flavor like vanilla that will work great with most recipes.


Takeaway

Whether you want to find your favorite recipe to make every day or you enjoy trying new things, hope these vegan protein shake recipes help you get your morning started with the right food and ready to conquer the day!
