Keeping up a homestead takes a lot of work, so this vegan workout recovery smoothie is the perfect snack or lunch for busy days. Since we chop our own trees for firewood, tend to our bees, or just renovate our home – we are constantly outdoors. And this is one of our go-to recipes.
Having a great recovery shake is key to staying hydrated and revitalized. 
We also love adding frozen berries to our smoothies, and they add fantastic flavor.

Easy Weekday Vegan Smoothies!

This vegan recovery smoothie recipe is what I call an Easy Weeknight Snack – which is on your table in about 30 minutes.  These quick and simple recipes are perfect for those nights when you want a  homecooked meal but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen.

I have a whole section of The Herbeevore dedicated to Easy Weeknight Meals, that are great for the whole family. From soups and stews, to pastas and proteins – a quick meal can be on your table in no time.  Even faster than ordering a to-go smoothie from a juice bar!

Frozen Cherry Recipes For the Win

I used a few frozen fruits like cherries for this recipe instead of  fresh produce. Frozen produce is a great option for finding fresh and flavorful fruits in the off season. By using freezer ingredients, I can stock up when they are on sale, and use them in all kinds of great dishes. It saves me a trip to the store, and I can add amazing fruits right into the recipe.

Frozen fruit is often picked at peak ripeness, so they are a much better option than canned.  Check out all my recipes that use Freezer Ingredients on The Herbeevore – great for those nights when you want dinner ready fast!

What’s In This Plant Based Recovery Smoothie?

I cook with fresh produce from my garden and from Misfits Market– they sell fantastic fruit, vegetables, & pantry staples at a discounted price. We get Misfit boxes every other week and love picking out favorite produce for delivery. Get $10 off your first box here!

The Best Blender for the Job

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my Vitamix is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This high-speed blender will blend even the toughest of ingredients into pulp.  I prefer using my blender to my food processor for sauces like this or homemade hummus, as it’s much easier to clean the Vitamix. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a daily basis, especially for post workout smoothie recipes.

One of the BEST Pantry Staple Smoothies

This vegan workout recovery smoothie recipe is a fantastic pantry-staple snack!  It uses almost all ingredients you would have in your dry pantry,  cupboards, or freezer.  You probably already have a lot of these ingredients on hand!  Keeping a well-stocked pantry makes it easy to come up with delicious meals using a few staples you can rotate.  I made a list of my Top 125 Plant-Based Pantry Staples that always keep on hand. And you can check out all my favorite pantry staple recipes on here.  By stocking up on whole ingredients you can cook delicious recipes without a trip to the store!

How Do I Make This Vegan Post-Workout Smoothie?

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on high speed for 1 minute until smoothie is thick and creamy.
Start the blender on low speed and work your way up to high until all frozen berries and ice are crushed.
