Healthy Dairy Free Breakfast Smoothies Recipes

Looking for dairy free smoothies? Here are 4 healthy dairy free breakfast smoothies that will help you start your morning and activities with a boost of nutrients. These nutritious non dairy smoothies recipes are also gluten free, vegan, plant based, perfect for clean eating or as a super healthy meal replacement for breakfast.

Dairy Free Smoothies

When making healthy dairy free smoothies for breakfast they should be viewed like any other meal of the day. They have to include a healthy balance of micro and macro-nutrients from real, whole foods.

And those of us that live a dairy-free life, have to replace dairy in our smoothies with other non-dairy milk alternatives in order to get that filling protein rich breakfast.

I’m making all my breakfast smoothies vegan and non-dairy for two reasons:

1. My gut doesn’t tolerate lactose (and all dairy in general).

2. Fruits mixed with dairy cause fermentation – thus gas.

Have you wondered why you feel so bloated after a dairy filled smoothie? It’s either the dairy’s culprit or you just don’t have enough enzymes to break down the fructose of fruits.

Ingredients For Dairy Free Breakfast Smoothies

You need a few essential ingredients to make healthy non-dairy smoothies:

  • Fruit: It’s the foundation of any smoothie recipe, it adds sweetness, provides fibre, complex carbs – the good ones, antioxidant and vitamins. If you want your dairy free smoothies to have a thicker and creamier consistency, use frozen bananas or avocados.
  • Liquid: In order to combine properly all dairy free smoothies need a little liquid. I like to use plain filtered water or some plant milk (it adds a touch of creaminess without extra calories or added sugar). Extra juice will make your smoothie a sugar bomb, and you don’t want that!
  • Protein & Fiber: If you want fewer processed foods in your life, then try to get all of your protein through natural plant based sources and not processed protein powders. Some good examples are: seed, nuts and their butters (flax, hemp, pumpkin, chia, sunflower, cashew, almonds etc.) leafy greens like kale, collard greens, spinach, sprouts, dandelions and many more.

Dairy Free Smoothies With Superfoods

Super-foods are optional but it’s a great way to add some extra antioxidants to your dairy free smoothies.

Another thing is that people with certain chronic diseases, have a hard time absorbing vitamins, so supplementing is even more essential.

When I’m looking to supplement, I avoid the synthetic form of vitamins produced in the lab. A natural, real food source is what our bodies like:

are the best ingredients to take your dairy free smoothie to the next level.

Amla fruits are one of the most best fruit source of vitamin C in the world, compared to fresh oranges, they have 20x the concentration of vitamin C. In general fruits and vegetables are the best sources of vitamin C, but you need to consume quite a lot in order get something absorbed.

4 Healthy Dairy free / Vegan Breakfast Smoothie Recipes made with anti-inflammatory whole foods – a great way to start clean eating in the morning, to boost your energy and even to loose weight. These dairy free breakfast smoothies are also suitable for a vegan diet and for those who are looking for a healthy meal replacement in the morning: 1. Pineapple & Mango Smoothie 2. Minty Peach Smoothie 3. Berry Peach Smoothie 4. Coffee Carob Smoothie

Tips For Healthy Dairy Free Smoothies

  1. In order to avoid a pesticide cocktail make sure all your fruits, vegetables, and superfoods are organically grown, uncontaminated and not mixed with other additives.
  2. A great substitute for nut milk is 2 tbsp of raw nuts or seeds and 1/2 cup of water blended prior to adding the rest. Or 1 tsp of nut butter per 1/2 cup of water.
  3. Frozen fruit will make your smoothie be thicker and frostier.
  4. A general rule of thumb is to stick to around 1 cup of fruit per smoothie serving.

Here are 4 super healthy dairy free smoothies recipe ideas that will not mess up with your dairy free / vegan life or your clean eating habits:

1. Anti-inflammatory Dairy Free Pineapple Smoothie

The combination of pineapple and mango in this smoothie will provide a good serving of vitamin C – over 140% DV, to be more exact. Pineapple is the only major dietary source of bromelain – a proteolytic enzyme that is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Pineapple and mango are both sweet and tart and pair well with ginger – which gives this smoothie a huge anti-inflammatory boost. For a creamier texture I used a non-dairy cashew yogurt.

2. Berry & Peach Dairy Free Smoothie

Low in sugar, calories and fat, this smoothie is filled with a healthy serving of fiber, antioxidants and vitamin C. And to help add fiber and more nutrition, plus to “bulk up” the smoothie without using extra sweet fruits, I added some peaches, celery, greens and flax seeds.

3. Minty Green Dairy Free Smoothie

This dairy free smoothie  Ripe and sweet mangoes and peaches, kale, fresh mint, and the other nutritional add-ons make a super healthy invigorating combo.

I added hemp oil for 2 reasons:

1) It’s an amazing source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that provides complete and highly digestible protein.

2) The fat from oil helps the fat soluble vitamins to be better absorbed by the body.

4. Dairy Free Coffee Carob Smoothie

This decadent-tasting “coffee-chocolate” smoothie is sweetened with fruit and fig butter from Trader Joe’s.  And I replaced cocoa powder for carob powder – a great alternative to chocolate if you are allergic to it.

When everything is mixed you get a sweet smoothie that tastes like a mocha, but without any of the added fillers or syrups you would get from the coffee shop.

As extra heath boosters I used avocado (also for creaminess) and hemp milk to make the smoothie more nutrient-packed and filling.

Dairy Free Smoothies Tips

 
  1. Add about 1/2 cup of liquid, then add more if necessary – choose from dairy-free milk, coconut water or plain water. If you use a large amount of water in your non-dairy smoothies, they become too watery and lose flavor.
  2. To make your smoothie with minimum added liquid or non at all, blend a few fruits first (that have a high amount of water in them) until you get a liquid mix, and then add the thick and creamy ingredients.
  3. A great substitute for nut / seed milk is 2 tbsp of raw nuts or seeds and 1/2 cup of water blended prior to adding the rest. Or 1 tsp of nut butter per 1/2 cup of water.
  4. Frozen fruit will make your smoothie be thicker and frostier.

Can you make these ahead of time and freeze them for use on busy days?

Unfortunately no, these should be consumed immediately as the fruits tend to degrade and loose nutrients quickly after blending.
