Looking for a post-workout protein-packed smoothie which is also vegan? Once you try our 5 ingredient vegan protein smoothie, you won’t feel the need to search any further. It’s an easy-to-customize pre/post workout snack that will keep you full for hours! 


We love to enjoy our Vegan Protein Smoothie right after a powerful morning yoga session or as a quick refuel snack an hour or so before a surf session. The combination of peanut butter and banana makes this smoothie rich in healthy fats, protein and potassium, and manganese, which promote good heart health and blood pressure. Not only does it replenish us with energy, but it’s so easy to throw together, blends in seconds and most importantly, it’s so delicious!

Vegans get asked a lot about where they get their protein from. Other than beans, lentils, soy amongst other sources, pea protein powder is a great and easy way to get that extra boost. In recent years, many brands have been releasing new forms of plant protein powders, both flavored and unflavored. Our favorite is pea protein as it doesn’t have an artificially sweet aftertaste and its texture isn’t as chalky.


Blend up the ingredients and you’ve got the perfect smoothie texture and flavor: it’s creamy, nutty, and chocolatey, with just enough banana essence.

Serves 4

1 large frozen banana 

2 tbsp 100% cocoa powder

1.5 scoops of vegan protein powder (vanilla or chocolate flavored or your favorite)

2 cups of almond milk

1.5 tbsp peanut butter

2 cups of ice cubes


If you don’t have protein powder – Add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, spirulina (this will change the color!). To substitute for the consistency, use 2 to 3 tablespoons of rolled oats and 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder instead. This will still make your shake more filling!

Fresh vs frozen banana – You can use either really! If you use fresh and like a slushy and thick consistency to your smoothie, then you can add more ice cubes. 

Alternative milk – You can use any dairy-free milk you like in this smoothie. Soy milk is a great alternative if you are looking for a high protein content, but you can also swap it for plain or flavored oat, hazelnut or cashew nut milk.

Don’t like bananas? Get rid of them completely and just add more ice. Bananas do add some sweetness, so instead, you may want to add a couple of dates, a tablespoon of agave or maple syrup.

Instead of peanut butter – There are so many other nut butters out there nowadays, other favorites of ours are almond butter and cashew butter, or you can choose to leave it out altogether.
