    Hi Barbara

    Thank you for the information and it quit impressive it is even hard to imagine that an athlete can go a day with his meat and the entire non veg package they have to consume in order t be on the top and have their body full of energy.I am so happy to read and thank you once again

  2. Carmen says:

    these are drinks that combine high-quality nutritional products; on top are very tasty; I think many combinations can be made to have a healthy breakfast, to recover energy after a workout or just to enjoy one of the drinks; I also get used to breakfast at high energy consumption but with low volume; thanks for posting, I found new recipes

    Thank you for this post, am glad I saw it. This is the kind of protein drinks that can rejuvenate one’s health.

    After a stressful day it will be nice to have such drink as the nutritional content is rich enough to revitalize our body.

    I like the ingredients mentioned and the method of preparation, it is very simple to follow. I have to try this out.

    Thanks for this information

    Hi Barbara,

    Thanks for writing this exceptional recipes idea. I am not expert on this. But my mother always loves to make new recipes of juice and drink shake. I believe she will be interested on this. I need this type of protein smoothie recipes when I do yoga. I am going to share it with my mother so that she can help me on this. Thanks for sharing.

    I am sure anyone can benefit from these three high protein smoothies recipes you shared. I am not an athlete but I am going to try them out one by one. I work very hard and experience low energy level during the day, so my body will certainly need these recipes. I am not used to these vegan recipes but would love to first try out the oat and quinoa smoothie since I already have the ingredients at home. The process of preparation is so easy to follow and would take less than an hour. Is it ok to refrigerate the drink before consumption or does this affect the nutritional value?

    • Barbara S. says:

      You can put it in the fridge but I would not keep it there overnight. Even though it is still good and full of nutrients I always find the Smoothies better taken as soon as they have been made.

    Thanks for making this interesting review, Protein shakes are easy enough for vegetarians to whip up, but if you’re vegan and you want a protein-packed smoothie after a workout or for a hearty breakfast, I guess the Vegan Smoothie with Soy Milk, Oatmeal and Chia would be my best take with easy method of preparation. 

  7. Kari says:

    Thanks for the good smoothie recipes that are suitable for vegan diets. I will try all of these. I have one favorite recipe that is also suitable for vegans:

    1/2 cup blueberries

    1/4 cup almonds

    2 1/2 cup almond milk

    1 teaspoon vanilla sugar

    Soak almonds in water couple of hours. Put them in the blender. Add blueberries, almond milk and vanilla sugar. Mix all ingredients until the mixture is sleek.

    I absolutely love a good smoothie and have recently been on a kick. I usually use them as a post-workout drink for the same reasons you give. Mine are high protein and I have definitely seen the results by drinking them. I do, however, get stuck in a rut sometimes and only have one go-to recipe, so these ideas are really helpful!

    I personally like to use milk in my smoothies instead of water as I think it makes for a richer, more satisfying drink, especially because I’m usually replacing a meal with one. 

    Thanks so much for putting these recipes out there and giving me some new ideas!

  9. Kinggold19 says:

    This is an awesome review. The combinations of this nutritional rich protein contents is just superb. Also, to rejuvenate the body of the stress the body muscle has undergone, pertaining to athletes, this is just the right combination, most especially for vegans. Good thing about this is that it is cheap to prepare and the contents are readily available. Thanks guy, good job welldone.

    Barbara, I so much appreciate you for always updating us with highly nutritious smoothie. I must say, your choice of recipe is so amazing. I tried out the Vegan Smoothie with Soy Milk, Oatmeal and Chia, and I can’t resist the awesome taste of the Vegan Smoothie with Soy Milk, Oatmeal and Chia, it’s more like being in wonderland. You’re my smoothie angel, Barbara.

    I must commend you for a very informative and healthy blog .

    I live in a community where 1/3 of the population have gone vegan

    and my opinion about them especially those that are my friends is that 

    they look very healthy and energetic. Personally I try to cut down on my 

    meat consumption so I eat more fish than meat . The recipe for your smoothies 

    are products we can easily buy from our local shops . My kids love smoothies, I 

    just blend up any fruit really like strawberry,  banana and alvacado. I will definitely try 

    the last smoothie which comprise almonds milk, spinach and quinoa, love the greenish 

    outcome of it.

    Finally your post would help alot of WA members especially newbies who are still trying  to find 

    their footings.

    Those look so delicious. I would love to taste one of those. Thank you for sharing your delicious vegan smoothie  recipes with us. I love the high fiber high protein nature of the quinoa and oatmeal in the smoothie as this provides your body with needed protein and daily fiber. I love the recipes and will try it out though I have been using oatmeal and some other ingredients but never added quinoa to my smoothie. I will try it and see how it tastes. Thanks for sharing. 

  13. Babsie Wagner says:

    Oh these look delicious.  I love quinoa and it has so much protein!  So much better than rice or pasta in many of my recipes, but I’ve never actually tried it in a smoothie.  Interesting!

    I don’t do soy.  I’ve heard so many bad things about it, so I avoid it, but I would just substitute the soy milk with my favorite superfood coconut milk.  I use it in most of my smoothies, and I was happy to see my other favorite superfood chia seeds!  Awesome!

    Great site, so much information!
