Vegan Smoothies: A Growing Industry
Updated: Sep 12, 2019
With Veganism, Vegetarianism and Pescatarianism becoming more and more popular I decided to partake in the planet-saving lifestyle back in 2018 when I was a vegetarian for a year. Sadly my picky-eater self was not able to make it a sustainable lifestyle and I had to call it quits. Now I am more independent with my meals and able to make choices freely about what goes into my body I have noticed some amazing changes. Now I'm not here to preach being vegan, because I am not, I am not even vegetarian. I am simply taking small steps and making minor adjustments to my lifestyle and diet to try and make a change in the world.
I personally don't eat beef of any sort, and I avoid milk as much as possible, because not only do I disagree with the farming industry making the animals unnaturally produce too much milk as well as giving them steroids to produce more meat, they are precious creatures who are suffering.
However, I do eat chicken and pork, and I am aware of the great suffering these animals are also put through, therefore I am making small steps to cut down my meat consumption, but as my body has a high metabolism I lose weight easily if I suddenly stop eating meat.
But to cut to the chase of this article I would like to share with you all my top three vegan smoothies made with Alpro soya milk and Koko Coconut milk!
Number 1: Banana, Pineapple, crushed ice and soya milk.
It's as easy as slicing up all the ingredients and popping them in a blender. Mine was £15 from Argos and by the brand Cookworks.
Number 2: Strawberry, blueberry, banana, crushed ice and Koko coconut milk
Although the skin of the blueberry and seeds of the strawberry gives this smoothie a slightly bitty texture the energy given from this particular cocktail of fruits is perfect from a morning boost rather than a cup of coffee!
Number 3: Peach, Pomegranate, strawberry, banana and soya milk
This sweet smoothie is perfect for satisfying a sweet tooth and but if paired with unsweetened almond milk can be better for those who don't want a sugar rush!
Using non-dairy alternatives in my smoothies is also largely beneficial for digestive purposes as those with lactose intolerence or those prone to indigestion will notice these smoothies won't upset any tummies or cause anything but a natural boost of energy.
I hope you enjoyed these vegan smoothie recipes and if you would like to see more vegan/ veggie recipes then please comment below and share your own experiences with veganism.
