Here I share my favourite vegan recipes that are not only delicious, but they are vibrant, wholesome and designed to nourish you from the inside out with vegan and vegan curious followers.
This tastes like summer in a glass to me – light, refreshing and so juicy thanks to the abundance of berries. The coconut water makes the smoothie even fresher, while adding a bit more flavour and summery vibes. I love adding some baobab to morning smoothies as they add a real zing that really wakens me up. I think the subtle baobab flavour here really compliments the berries and banana, but feel free to leave it out if you don’t have any to hand. Although, I am so glad I invested in some, as baobab powder lasts a long time as you only need a little bit at a time.
This smoothie isn’t too filling, but I do like to add some vegan protein powder, and I can imagine a berry flavoured one would taste great! I’ve used a plain pea protein just to keep my going a bit more, but I’d recommend this smoothie alongside a lighter breakfast like avocado toast or enjoying this burst of sunshine as a midday pick-me-up.
It’s simple, fresh and berry-licious!
A Refreshing Coconut Berry Smoothie
150g frozen mixed berries
1 x 330ml carton coconut water
1 tbsp vegan protein powder e.g. pea
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp baobab powder
Place all the ingredients in a blender and whizz until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy straight away – I like to top mine with some desiccated coconut, too.
