3 delicious healthy vegan smoothies

Smoothies! What’s not to like? You can make such a wide variety of healthy vegan smoothies with just about every imaginable taste. There has to be one perfect smoothie for everyone out there.

That is at least how we feel about smoothies. We absolutely love them! One kitchen tool we will still own when we start our van life journey is a blender just to create some delicious smoothies!

You can drink smoothies just as a treat for your sugar cravings. Or you can choose to make a smoothie as healthy as possible by adding vegetables such a carrots, spinach and beetroot.

We even like smoothies as breakfast. They do not fill you up as long as other brekkies do, but they’re a great way to start the day!

We’d like to share three of our favorite smoothies; one from each of the types we mentioned. A super sweet smoothie to enjoy in the sun. A healthy green smoothie to give you all the nutrients you need. And last but not least, our favorite breakfast smoothie!

The ingredients for each of the recipes are for two people, as that is how we are used to making them. These recipes make for two full 450ml glasses.
