Today, we are talking all things plantbased and using smoothies as a way to nourish and eat more plantbased meals. The smoothie recipe I am sharing is super easy to make (even for beginners) and makes a deeply nourishing, healthy breakfast or lunch that is literally made in less than 2-minutes. As a Nutritionist, I am all about helping and inspiring people to eat more wholefoods, and this recipe does exactly that and a whole lot of delicious, plantbased flavour!

What Makes Plantbased Smoothies Healthy?

Eating more plants is one of the simplest ways to improve your diet. However, if you are not a big fan of vegetables, popping them into smoothie with some of your favourite fruits is an easy way to get more nutrients and veggies in your diet. More often than not, the fruity flavour of plantbased smoothies perfectly masking the earthy taste of vegetables like greens and other vegetables.

Here's a few reasons why smoothies are one of my recommended ways to improve your diet:

Packed With Nutrients

 Plantbased smoothies jam-packed with goodness, and a convenient way to pack a powerful hit of nutrients into your weekly menu. Fruits, like berries and mangoes, provide natural sweetness and are loaded with essential vitamins and antioxidants that fight free radicals in your body. Vegetables, such as spinach and kale, add a dose of essential vitamins, minerals, and dietary fibre, promoting gut health and keeping you feeling fuller for longer. Nuts and seeds are a great source of healthy fats, protein, and additional fibre. With all the wholefood ingredients added a plantbased smoothie, it creates an excellent nutrient-rich meal.

Make Them Dairy-free

Since plantbased smoothies usually skip dairy, this makes them an excellent option for people with dairy and lactose intolerance, perfect for vegans, or those following a dairy-free diet.

Nutritional Variety Is Easy

You can throw in all sorts of fruits and veggies into smoothies, making them super versatile and healthy. Its a great way to use up leftover or overripe fruit and veggies. In most cases, you won't even taste the vegetables, so plantbased smoothies are another excellent way to u your veggie intake and eat more greens.

A Source Of Essential Dietary Fibre

Plantbased ingredients are generally high in fibre, which can help you feel fuller for longer, feed you gut microbes, and aid digestion. eating more fibre also has a direct effect on fat distribution and supports natural weight loss.

Boosts Your Energy Naturally

With all the natural goodness packed in, plantbased smoothies are a fabulous and healthy way to get a burst of energy that lasts for hours.

Adding even just a few plantbased smoothies into your weekly menu, can be a simple, nutritious, and effective way to improve your diet and eat clean. Plantbased smoothies are not only packed with essential vitamins and minerals, but they also offer a delicious and refreshing treat that you can enjoy any time of day. By adding these nutrient-dense beverages to your diet, you'll be supporting your overall health and well-being in a convenient and deeply nourishing way!

Easy Plantbased Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie recipe is an excellent starter for anyone wishing to eat more plantbased. One the secrets to a good tasting plantbased smoothie is using frozen banana. It creates a delightfully thick texture and a smoothie consistency that folds out of the blender like soft-serve ice cream rather than your run-of-the-mill, liquid smoothie. Add in a heaping serving of high-fibre fruits and superfoods like chia or flax seeds, psyllium husk or LSA keeps your gut happy, and a scoop or two of a vegan protein powder will help keep you feeling full and satiated for hours. Blenders ready? Let's try it!

Mango Smoothie Recipe


  • 1 banana, chopped and fully frozen

  • 250ml almond milk, unsweetened

  • 1/2 mango, fresh or frozen

  • 1/2 cup pineapple, fresh or frozen

  • OPTIONAL: 1-2 scoops plantbased protein powder (vanilla recommended)

  • THICK SMOOTHIE: add a 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.

This yummy plantbased smoothie recipe is a simple base recipe if you want to start experimenting with new smoothie recipes of your own. Try it with a rotating mixture of healthy greens like beetroot tops, spinach, kale, or watercress. Add a little nut butter and seeds to up the protein content, or try it with the suggested scoop of vanilla flavoured, vegan protein powder. There are literally so many ways to make this smoothie recipe and in a variety of plantbased flavours so you'd never get bored. Pop down in the comments and share your thoughts.
