Vegan Protein Shake Recipe (Dairy-Free)


Vanilla Vegan Protein Shake Recipe: an easy, customizable & dairy free recipe for a delicious, creamy & filling vegan protein shake that’s packed with 22g of protein! Made in just 5 minutes.



Vegan Protein Shake

  • ¾ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (more below)
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons vanilla vegan protein powder (or two scoops of the one that I use)
  • 1 tablespoon MCT oil (optional)
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • ½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk

Optional Boosters

For the perfect combo of customizations to use, check out the recipe in my Best Vegan Protein Powder post.

  • For Veggies: ½ cup frozen spinach
  • For Energy: ¼ teaspoon gelatinized maca powder
  • For Fruit: sub 1/2 cup ice cubes with ½-3/4 cup frozen fruit, such as strawberries, peaches or blueberries
  • For Protein Boost: 2 tablespoons peanut powder
  • For Healthy Fats: 2 tablespoons unsalted, natural creamy nut butter, or more MCT oil
  • For Fun: 1 tablespoon paleo chocolate chunks


  1. This is the blender I use to make my smoothies. It’s easy to use, holds the perfect amount, and can be left to keep blending while I walk away (it runs by itself).
  2. Add all ingredients in the order listed: 3/4 cup non-dairy milk, vegan protein powder, MCT oil, ice cubes and 1/2 cup milk. This is the order that I’ve found to be smoothest, without any protein powder getting stuck in a clump anywhere.
  3. Depending on your daily nutritional needs, feel free to add maca powder, peanut powder, nut butter or more MCT oil.
  4. Close blender. Blend until smooth and no chunks remain. Enjoy immediately!
