The Best Plant-Based Milks for Your Smoothie

Step 1: Start with a healthy and tasty base for your smoothie
Pacific Foods Organic Oat Milk — the perfect base for Smoothies

Pacific Foods Organic Oat Milk

We choose Pacific Foods Oat Milk for our smoothies. It simply tastes better than the others. It’s not too watery and not too chalky, with no aftertaste and no artificial taste. Of course, it’s plant-based, gluten-free, dairy free, and organic certified. And it has just the right consistency for a smoothie base. We order the original flavor but also like vanilla.

Koita Organic Almond Milk

Made with organic almonds grown in the nutrient-rich soil of the Italian alps, this almond milk is the silkiest we have ever tasted. The pure, clean flavor and creamy texture make it an ideal smoothie base. We also love that it’s non-GMO, free of carrageenan, and comes in sustainable Tetra Pak packaging.

Living Harvest Tempt Hemp Milk

Living Harvest Tempt Hemp Milk

Tiny hemp seeds transformed into creamy, delicious, and ultra-nutritious hemp milk. A great non-dairy base for smoothies. Contains all 10 essential amino acids and is rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Also a great source of calcium, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin D.

The Best Smoothie Protein Powders — Plant, Whey & Collagen

Step 2: Pick your protein boost
Opportuniteas Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate

Opportuniteas Grass-Fed Whey Protein Isolate

28g of protein per serving — we love that every gram of protein comes from grass-fed, hormone-free cows grazing on New Zealand farms. Also key, there are no artificial sweeteners added. Another bonus is this powder doesn’t clump, making for truly “smooth” smoothies and smoother cleanup. We’re a fan.

Hemp Yeah! Organic Max Protein Powder

Organic and unsweetened, this hemp protein powder by Manitoba Harvest is our go-to for our smoothies. Our muscles like its 20g of plant protein. Our heart loves its 4.5g of omegas 3 & 6 for cardio heath and its anti-inflammatory benefits. And our tastebuds appreciate its mild (frankly unnoticeable) flavor.

They also contain vitamins B, E and D, and copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, niacin, phosphorous, and potassium. We like that Healthworks’ raw goji berries are certified organic and are sun dried — a process helping enrich the sweet and natural flavors of this delicious and nutritious berry.

Organic ACAI Powder

Organic Terrasoul Superfoods Acai Powder

Acai is a fun and nutrient-dense addition to your at home smoothies, one borrowed from the juice bar bowl-craze. It’s packed with antioxidants, essential amino acids, and monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. We like that Terrasoul Superfood’s Acai is USDA Organic and non-GMO verified — and we appreciate how easy it is to maintain freshness with its resealable package.
