This healthy plant-based Vegan Cherry Banana Smoothie is an easy recipe made with only 5 clean, real food ingredients and is 100% Medical Medium® compliant!
Here's Why This Recipe Works
My top 3 favorite reasons:
- It's 100% Medical Medium® Compliant
- Ready In Under 5 Minutes
- Made With Only 5 Clean, Real Food Ingredients
It's 100% Medical Medium® Compliant
I created this quick and easy vegan smoothie specifically using Medical Medium® healing ingredients.
In addition to the two main ingredients - cherries + bananas, I added healing fresh aloe vera and another surprising ingredient.
This surprising ingredient is not one you would think of to add to a smoothie but it's 100% undetectable.
It's frozen cauliflower rice!
I love to add frozen cauliflower rice to smoothies and smoothie bowls for two reasons:
- It adds extra nutritional value
- It's an excellent replacement for ice cubes to give a recipe an icy texture.
One of most favorite recipes to use cauliflower rice in a frozen dessert is my Vegan Chocolate "Nice" Cream Smoothie Bowl.
Ready In Under 5 Minutes
This recipe is perfect when you need a quick breakfast or post-workout smoothie because it takes less than 5 minutes to make.
And, there's no veggies or fruit to cut and prep in advance.
For example, simply add all the ingredients to your Vitamix, blend and it's ready to enjoy!
Made With Only 5 Clean, Real Food Ingredients
This recipe is simple to make with only 5 clean, real food ingredients that are nutrient-dense.
For example, easy ingredients such as bananas, cherries, almond milk, frozen cauliflower rice, and fresh aloe vera.
And, the last two ingredients, which I added for extra nutritional benefits, can be omitted if you prefer.
You can enjoy my healthy smoothie recipe that's plant-based, raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, low-fat, paleo-friendly, and Medical Medium® compliant.
How To This Recipe: Step-by-Step Instructions
You'll love how easy it is to make this healthy plant-based smoothie in under 5 minutes!
Step 1: Add all Ingredients
The best way to make this smoothie is a Vitamix because it will give it a smooth and creamy texture.
However, if your blender can easily blend frozen fruit, then feel free to use a regular blender.
Firstly, add all the ingredients for the smoothie to your blender and blend until creamy and smooth.
Step 2: Serve the Smoothie
Secondly, this recipe will make either (1) large smoothie or (2) regular-size smoothies.
Pour the smoothie into the cup(s) of your choice (glass instead of plastic!) and enjoy!
Karielyn's Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions
Here are some of my expert tips to make this recipe perfectly:
Bananas. I will use both frozen and regular organic bananas when making this recipe. See "notes" in the recipe section for more tips.
Cherries. I used frozen organic dark sweet cherries but you could also use regular organic cherries. Please do not use the bright red cherries that come in a jar and contain additives and food coloring.
Cauliflower Rice. I only add and use organic frozen cauliflower rice. It does not have a flavor at all and gives the smoothie an icy texture and greater nutritional benefits.
Aloe Vera. I added this ingredient for the healing benefits it provides, but it can be omitted if you don't have any. I use fresh aloe vera flesh and buy mine in the produce section of Whole Foods. Slice off a 3-inch piece, cut it in half and then scrape out the gel on the inside to add to the smoothie.
Homemade Almond Milk. This is my milk of preference but feel free to substitute it with your favorite non-dairy milk. Another great option is to use Joi Organic Almond Milk made with 100% organic almonds.
