17 Gluten-Free Vegan Shake & Smoothie Bowl Recipes

Shakes are just so effortless to throw together in the morning—I’ve been obsessed for years, but protein powder isn’t always the cleanest and often has cheap fillers. There are so many options out there, but it’s difficult to find a protein powder with clean, simple ingredients that’s also certified gluten-free. I’ve finally found one that I love and now enjoy gluten-free vegan shakes and smoothie bowls most mornings for breakfast!

My Favorite Gluten-Free Vegan Protein

I first tried Arbonne’s certified gluten-free vegan shake protein earlier this year.  It’s not only certified gluten-free and certified vegan, but also GMO project verified and much more!  Both the vanilla and chocolate protein make an excellent base for a gluten-free vegan shake (but they also have special edition flavors released off and on throughout the year!)

Learn more about Arbonne and it’s commitment to gluten-free here!

If you’re looking for a dependable gluten-free & vegan protein powder, this one is by far the best I’ve tried…. and I’ve tried a lot! Plus, the price per serving is comparable to that of many other vegan protein powders… except that this one is also CERTIFIED gluten-free.

Plus, if you love saving $$$ (like I do!), get in touch and I’ll give you all the details on how you can save 30-50% off each order!

Why the obsession with shakes?

I love a good shake to take with me in the morning (I often don’t have time to sit and eat breakfast–hello crazy schedule)! When I’m doing one of Arbonne’s 30 Days to Healthy Living Bootcamps, I’ll sometimes have one for lunch too.

Looking for other tips besides breakfast on-the-go while navigating a crazy schedule while gluten-free? Read my top tips here!

Honestly, shakes are quick to prepare, make for a healthy breakfast on the go, and Arbonne protein keeps me fueled!

In the mornings where I do have some extra time, I try to “mix it up” a bit and get creative—pun intended! 

Below you’ll find a list of 17 gluten-free vegan shake and smoothie bowl recipes created to mix things up.  Add them to your weekly meal plan and let us know which is your favorite recipe!

Keep reading for the recipes, but first let’s pause and chat about blenders.

If you’re going to make a lot of shakes, I definitely recommend a quality blender. Honestly, a great blender can be the difference between a GREAT shake, and a just-ok shake.

Amazon has a multiple of blenders available in a totally affordable price range that also have great reviews (4+ stars). However, I personally love Ninja’s products (in fact, I personally use this Ninja with personal blending to-go cups). Although I’m totally content with my Ninja, my dream is to save up and splurge on a Vitamix!

Gluten-Free Vegan Shake Recipes

Basic Shake Recipe:

I start with a simple gluten-free vegan shake base of:

To each shake you should add a fat source (nut butters, coconut oil, avocado, flax, or chia) and change up the flavors with fun mix-ins (fruit, veggies, coconut, oats or gluten-free extracts).

While Arbonne’s protein naturally makes a gluten-free vegan shake, be sure that all your mix-ins are gluten-free!  Extracts, coconut, and oats are often contaminated with gluten.  I recommend you stick with trusted brands such as Watkins Extracts and Flavorings and purity protocol oats such as GF Harvest.

Note:  I personally order a lot of these ingredients online from Thrive Market.  If you haven’t tried Thrive Market, click here to read my full review AND for a special promo link to save 25% off on your first order!
