Erin Ireland shared this delicious recipe with us during her #BestLifeProject Vega Instagram takeover. With a dollop of vegan whipped cream, say good morning to a blueberry smoothie that tastes like a decadent blueberry milkshake.

Ingredients

  • Smoothie Ingredients :
  • 1 cup local blueberries
  • 1 small handful frozen banana chunks
  • 1 cup almond or coconut milk
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 serving French Vanilla Vega One™ Nutritional Shake
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • Coconut Whipped Cream :
  • 1 can coconut cream, chilled in fridge overnight
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Maple syrup, as needed

Preparation

  1. Add all your smoothie ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth.

  2. Make coconut whipped cream by removing can of coconut cream from the fridge, flip upside down and open. Drain the liquid and scoop the solid coconut cream into your chilled mixing bowl. Beat on high until frothy peaks form. Add a small splash of vanilla and maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it) and beat until combined.

  3. Add a dollop of coconut whipped cream to your blueberry smoothie and enjoy!
