High Protein Vanilla Creme Smoothie Recipe

Want a smoothie that tastes good enough to be a dessert? Well, this vanilla creme smoothie is it in spades - it's made with naturally sweet bananas and thickened with coconut cream and crushed ice. Honestly, it pours like soft-serve ice cream and is equally as good without all the sugar and empty calories. I've even included my low carb version! Blenders ready? Let's start making this healthy, high-protein recipe...

Smoothies have been a longtime favourite of mine for their ease of making super healthy blended meals in a matter of minutes. You can easily take a basic smoothie recipe and add so many delicious, wholefood ingredients to create new flavours and recipes without much fuss. This works great for those with dietary requirements or food sensitivities; find your base and just rotate the flavours and ingredients.

Healthy High Protein Smoothies

Protein-packed smoothies are an excellent way to fuel your body and satisfy your taste buds whether you enjoy them with dairy or without. They're perfect for post-workout recovery, those pear-shaped mornings, or as a quick afternoon pick-me-up. You can easily turn any smoothie recipe into high-protein just by adding whey or plantbased protein powder, raw nut butters and seeds, or Greek yogurt (silken tofu vegans). This will create a delicious smoothie that will keep you feeling fuller for longer while supporting blood sugar levels and aiding muscle building and repair. So ditch those sugary protein shakes and blend up a high-protein smoothie for a healthy and delicious on-the-go option.

Vanilla Creme Smoothie Recipe

Get ready for chilled dessert in a blender because that is how creamy this one turns out. The frozen banana with the coconut milk gives a thick, creamy texture which is further made fluffy if you add the ice. I've also included a low-carb version of this smoothie recipe for those who are diabetic or on a low-carb eating plan. This version is equally as good, and loaded with dietary fibre to balance that blood sugar!


  • 1 banana, frozen works best

  • 250ml chilled coconut milk, unsweetened

  • 1 scoop plant-based protein powder (vanilla recommended)

  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (unsweetened for added protein)

  • 3 dates, sulfur-free, pitted

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground

  • OPTIONAL: handful of crushed ice

Low Carb Option:

  • 1 cup cauliflower steamed in vanilla spiked water (swap for the banana)

  • 2 tsp stevia (if you want extra sweetness)

In a high-powered blender, add all the ingredients. If using the Low Carb Option, wait until the cauliflower has fully cooled before blending. Blend on high until all the ingredients are well combined, about 2-3 minutes. Spoon or pour into a serving bowl and top with your favourite crunchy and fruit toppings.
