Vegan Weight Gain Shake Recipes

Do you want to gain weight the healthy way? Let me guess: you’ve perhaps tried the thousands of muscle building powders or want to build a lifestyle where you add mass gainer supplements along with mass gaining foods like the shakes. Or maybe you’re just a Vegan who wants to gain weight through a plant-based diet. Whatever it may be, green smoothies are the way to go. They are easy to prepare, nutritious and most importantly, healthy. 

And before you get to the smoothies, you need to understand that these smoothies are not just for vegans. It’s for everyone! They come in high protein, fibre and nutritional values, making it not only a simple drink but a powerful one too. But do you want to know the best part? All the below shakes are delicious, budget-friendly on-the-go smoothies, packed with many fantastic ingredients.

You must have checked out the protein rich quinoa smoothie that we had earlier prepared, now we will go through some really good recipes in this article.

Health Benefits of a Plant-Based Smoothies       

Right before we dive into the recipes, it is important to address why these vegan smoothies are so beneficial. As I’ve mentioned before, they are jam-packed full of nutrients. The average green smoothie recipe provides more than 100% of your daily vitamins A, C and K; with a satisfactory amount of B and E alongside that.

Blending fruits and vegetables break down the cells of the plants, which, in turn, improves overall digestibility. It maximises the nutrients that need to be delivered to your body and makes it healthier and much more efficient like you get in your Vegan Banana Smoothie.

Muscle Building Smoothie Recipes

According to nutritionists and other health professionals, these vegan shakes are proven to lower high cholesterol levels, and blood pressures, whilst also strengthening immunity and improving mental focus as well as clarity. They are also an excellent source for minerals, meaning that each smoothie is prepared with calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, copper and many others. This rich array of minerals helps in bone-building and help protect your body from certain foods. 

1. Mocha Blast Mass Gainer

Don’t you just love a nice chocolate drink from Dunkin’ Donuts? Of course, who doesn’t? They’re delicious! But some problem. The chocolate drinks over there aren’t exactly going to help with building muscle and they aren’t vegan (You read the reason behind why are Donuts not vegan with us). It comes high in saturated fats and added sugars, which may negatively impact heart health and increase the chances of certain types of cancer. So, what do you do? 

The Mocha Blast Mass Gainer is the perfect alternative. The shake offers very similar attributes to a shake found in Dunkin’ Donuts, but the only difference being is that it has a ton of protein. But since it is quite a violent drink with coffee content, it is best to settle with DECAF during night times and caffeinated during the day. This smoothie serves as an ideal breakfast, mid-day energiser and after workout solution.

The Mocha Blast Mass Gainer is a relatively simple shake to make and requires perhaps little to no effort. It encompasses a wide array of ingredients which is what makes its protein and nutrition values so diverse.

The Peanut Butter Chocolate Mass Gainer comes packed with fantastic flavors and nutrients that taste phenomenal. If you have trouble gaining weight, look nowhere else.

It also comes with peanut butter that has calories which make it an optimal and healthy weight gaining solution. This smoothie serves as an ideal breakfast, on-the-go drink and workout solution.
