Smoothies are a healthy person’s best friend, but what if that person is actually a vegan? While it’s easy enough to substitute cow’s milk for a plant milk, we thought it’d be better to bring you 7 vegan smoothie recipes that were specifically made to be vegan. The following smoothie recipes have been lovingly crafted by some awesome recipe blogs who we've featured in the past, so be sure to check them out and send our love!

Healthy Apple Crumble Smoothie by Easy Cheesy Vegetarian
When you hear the words 'apple crumble', healthy probably isn't the word that comes to mind. However, Easy Cheesy Vegetarian seems to have done this impossible with this healthy smoothie! This smoothie contains fruit, spices, a spoonful of oats, and a dash of milk, which sounds like a very healthy breakfast to me! While the recipe creator used cow's milk in her recipe, she believes oat milk would taste yummy too, and this recipe was too cool for us to pass up.
