14 Dairy-Free Smoothie Ideas
Don't have a cow about it.
Smoothies are a great way to quickly slurp down some nutrients when you need sustenance but don't have time for something more involved. But a lot of smoothies contain dairy in some form or another. That's great in terms of protein but not so much if you're lactose-intolerant, have a dairy allergy, are vegan, or just don't like the taste.
That's where these 14 smoothie ideas come in. All of them use substitutes like coconut yogurt and almond milk to ensure that you're still getting that classic creamy, smoothie texture. And to supplement the protein you're losing by nixing the dairy, many of them also blend in additional protein sources like oats and hemp seeds. That way, your smoothie is a well-rounded snack that will actually satisfy you, rather than a sugar-packed gut bomb that'll make you crash. Bonus: They're delicious whether or not you're a fan of dairy.
Nice and fruity, a touch of chia seeds add a bit of extra texture and a hit of fiber. Get the recipe here.
