Whey-free Smoothie Recipes

Whey Free and Dairy Free Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies can be a great and fast meal on the go. If made correctly, they can be a source of nutrients, protein, healthy fats, and probiotics. Without these healthy ingredients, many smoothies contain as much sugar as juice or soda. If protein powder is used, many contain processed whey or artificial sweeteners.

As with any food or drink, the most healthy recipe is usually one made at home and smoothies are no exception. My kids love smoothies and I’ve created a system for making homemade smoothies with real food ingredients. Our smoothies rarely have the same flavor twice since we pick new ingredients each time.

For these whey-free smoothie recipes, we select a liquid as the base, add some frozen fruit and/or veggies and add healthy proteins and fats:
