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!

Looking for different protein powder options? See all of my favorites in my shop.

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:

  • 1-2 scoops of vegan protein,
  • unsweetened almond/coconut/or cashew milk, and
  • ice (or frozen fruit). 

While the all the protein powders I recommend are gluten-free, 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.

Protein Shake Add Ins!

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). You can also add ½-1 scoop of Arbonne’s fiber boost.

I’m also a fan of adding 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum to my shakes to make them thicker and creamier.

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 up to $20 off on your first order!

Gluten-Free Vegan Bowl Recipes

Since I have time on the weekends, I just want to sit down and savor my breakfast while reading my devotional.  On these days I transform my typical gluten-free vegan shake into a smoothie bowl.  

Basic Protein Smoothie Bowl Base:

The base is your basic shake—but made thicker (almost like a puddling consistency) and it’s topped with whatever you want.  If you’ve never tried a smoothie bowl, here’s your chance to add a recipe to your meal planner!

Here’s a list of my favorite gluten-free vegan smoothie bowls:

12. Hide-Yo-Veggies Chocolate Bowl

  1. Omg!! They all sound yummi!!! I think I have to try all of them, but I think the first one will be the pumpkin pie!!! Thanks for sharing this delish!!

  2. These shakes and smoothie bowls look and sound delicious! I need to change up my shakes and these recipes are perfect, thank you!

    1. Sure you can! The only reason why I use cashew butter in the vanilla chai shake flavor is because cashew butter has a more subtle flavor than almond butter. But almond butter would taste excellent too.

  3. I’m just getting started on my Arbonne 30 day challenge. I don’t have the luxury of having a blender at work, can these be made ahead of time and refrigerated?

    1. great question! I think if you’re blending with ice, they will become ‘runny’ if made ahead–but I’ve never tried it.
      Maybe try making them without ice and freezing them the night before? Then they’ll thaw and become softer before lunch time? Just a thought. 🙂
