This vegan protein shake is so good you’ll barely believe it’s healthy too. And it has heaps of protein per serve without needing any protein powder added.
Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against protein powder and I drank a Vega Shake every day for YEARS but sometimes it’s nice to get your protein without any added powders.
This shake really delivers on flavor and nutrition! It makes an ideal breakfast or post workout shake.

Pro Tips for the Best Vegan Protein Shake
Soy milk is great to use for this shake as it has a high protein content already. However, if you have a soy allergy then switch for a different non-dairy milk, but just keep in mind that it will lower the protein content of this shake.
Frozen bananas really ramp up the creaminess of this shake but fresh bananas work very well too. It’s ideal if you have an excess of ripe bananas at any stage to just peel them, cut them into quarters and freeze them so they’re ready for smoothies anytime you want.
This recipe makes two servings, so if you only need enough for one then halve the recipe. Or just eat it all for 40 plus grams of protein if you have a big appetite!

Vegan Protein Shake
- Add the soy milk, peanut butter, banana, cocoa powder, rolled oats, chia seeds and pitted dates to the blender jug and blend until smooth and creamy.
- Pour out into glasses and serve immediately.
- You can switch for a different non-dairy milk but it will affect the protein content since soy milk has a fairly high protein content.
- Whenever you have extra ripe bananas, peel them, cut them into quarters and freeze them in freezer safe container. These are ideal to use in smoothies. This smoothie is great with either fresh or frozen banana.
- This recipe makes 2 servings so if you're only making for one person you can halve the recipe. It is most ideal to drink it all right away as it doesn't keep well due to the fresh fruit.
