Who said you to have to have Dairy in your smoothie? We all know Dairy isn’t healthy. So why are we still making smoothies with it? Plant-Based milks are so readily available for us, are so healthy and are so yummy. Whether you are vegan or not, you should start making your smoothies, especially this one, without milk!
Everybody knows how it’s important to include fruits and vegetables in a diet, even if you’re vegan or not. However, we all know how amazing a vegan diet is as a way to improve your health (amongst other things which I have discussed here). If you’re a vegan, or are thinking of switching over to being a vegan and eating a plant based diet, it’s important to remember that you need to plan your meals and snacks, you can’t rely on getting 100% vegan meals and snacks on the go.
Eating vegan doesn’t require you to stop eating all the foods you like.
There’s always a way of creating a new version of something you enjoy already and adapt recipes you find or that you once loved before being vegan. This raw vegan banana smoothie without milk is an example of that.
It’s not only important we cook healthy vegan meals, but also healthy vegan snacks. One of my favorite snacks that I love to enjoy are healthy vegan smoothies like a vegan banana smoothie without milk, homemade mango smoothie (check here), and other fruit smoothies with peanut butter. Besides, vegan or not, most people love drinking smoothies and also drink them as a snack.
They are delicious, nutritious, healthy, fast to make, and sweet. One of the best parts of the smoothie it’s how easy it’s for you to make it and mix it with other fruits. They are perfect for all seasons of the year, you can pretty much make a vegan banana smoothie without milk anytime you wish.
