Smoothie recipe storage

Smoothies are best eaten immediately. But these smoothie recipes actually last 1 to 2 days refrigerated, stored in a sealed container or a mason jar with the lid on. It may separate, which is perfectly natural. Just shake it up and you’re good to go!

Best ways to pack protein into smoothie recipes

Want to add more protein into your homemade smoothies? Here are the best ways to do it…without the protein powder!

  • Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt packs a huge punch of protein: it also has live probiotics for a healthy guy.
  • Nut butter: Try peanut butter, cashew butter, or almond butter to add plant-based protein.

Plant based milk for homemade smoothies

Some of the homemade smoothie recipes above use milk as a liquid for blending. Make them vegan smoothies by using your favorite non-dairy milk instead of dairy milk. Here’s a run-down on the options:

  • Oat milk: With its sweet flavor and lightly creamy texture, it’s ideal for smoothie recipes.
  • Almond milk: It’s a little closer to water in its texture, but it’s popular and easy to find.
  • Coconut milk: Coconut milk is very thick and adds a strong coconut flavor.
  • Soy milk: Soy milk has a nice sweet flavor and thick texture.
