Slightly sweet and luscious blueberries blended into a creamy blueberry vanilla protein smoothie, making it one of the best healthy vegan smoothies you will ever drink. Loaded with antioxidants and dairy-free.
What’s not to love about eating ripe and delicious blueberries? When not eating them as a simple healthy snack, I like to enjoy them whenever possible to maintain a plant-based diet.
On most days, I typically make most of my smoothies with all natural fruit juices – usually, cranberry juice for a slightly sweet and tart flavor. On the other hand, blending my blueberries with mango juice was absolutely tropical and tasty.
You can easily make this between meals or when you need a boost of energy. Blueberries are filled with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients to keep you fit and healthy.
One day I decided to do something different and use non-dairy milk.
The result was smooth, creamy, and delightful.
This is the best healthy blueberry vanilla vegan protein smoothie. This easy recipe will give you a smoothie that is rich and filling to drink any time of the day.

A Refreshing Blueberry Vanilla Vegan Protein Smoothie
Made with plump, ripe blueberries.
Vanilla extract for a smooth and creamy flavor.
Agave nectar for a bit of sweetness. (Of course, you can leave this out or use another natural sweetener.)
Nutrient-rich Vegan protein powder for added benefits.
Ready in 5 minutes or less!
For this quick smoothie recipe, you can use fresh or frozen blueberries as the main ingredient. For more of a healthy frozen treat, use frozen blueberries. Frozen blueberries are a lifesaver, especially if you don’t have access to fresh berries when not in season.
*A quick tip – Taste your blueberries beforehand. If they are a little tart, don’t worry. The vanilla extract and agave nectar will mellow out any acidic taste.
Made with non-dairy milk for creamy goodness.
To blend everything together, you can use whichever plant-based milk of your choice – almond milk, oat milk, soy milk, coconut milk or rice milk. I like to use unsweetened / unflavored non-dairy milk as it has a neutral flavor that’s great for baking and cooking.
What else makes this smoothie satisfying:
Vanilla Extract combined with the blueberries is dreamy and flavorsome.
Agave Nectar naturally sweetens this smoothie for a wholesome taste. You can adjust the amount to suit your taste.
Vegan Protein with Benefits – Vegan protein powders are sourced from plant proteins. In many cases, vegan protein powders may also be labeled gluten-free, depending on the ingredients.
You can also make your own protein blend from powdered hemp seeds, chia seeds, brown rice powder or pea protein.
I hope you’ll enjoy this Blueberry Vanilla Vegan Protein Smoothie.
