Are Vegan Smoothies Good For You?

Vegan smoothies are an incredibly good way for vegans to get essential nutrients into their bodies. 

Vegan smoothies typically consist of fresh fruit and veg, and the presence of seeds and nuts as well – all these ingredients are really good for our health.

Smoothies are also really easy to incorporate into your diet, since they are so easy to make, and are really delicious too, which helps when it comes to eating more fruit and veg.

What Is a Vegan Smoothie Made Of?

Vegan smoothies are often made using fruit, leafy greens, vegetables, seeds, nut butters, dairy-free milk, water, and some fruit juices.
