Get 25 delicious gluten and dairy-free smoothie recipes, including chocolate smoothies, banana smoothies, smoothies without bananas, fruit smoothies, and protein smoothies.
There are so many reasons to love smoothies. I particularly love smoothies in the spring and summer months when you can find loads of fresh fruit at the grocery store for a decent price.
But I also have been known to “bulk up” my smoothies in the winter with healthy fats and spices to turn a warm-weather food into one that works throughout the whole year.
What is great about smoothies is that you can add just about any ingredients that you enjoy a nutritious breakfast or snack option in just seconds.
The one thing that you’ll want to keep in mind if you avoid certain foods in your diet like me is making sure that the ingredients are both gluten and dairy-free.
While a gluten-free smoothie is pretty easy to come by, dairy-free smoothies aren’t as common. A lot of folks put dairy in their smoothies in the form of milk or yogurt. So if you’re avoiding dairy, you’ll want to be sure to have a list of smoothie recipes that omit or substitute these ingredients.
Luckily, I’ve rounded up 25 delicious gluten and dairy-free smoothie recipes for both you and I to reference regularly.
I’ve divided them into five categories to help choose based on your mood. We’ve got chocolate smoothies, banana smoothies, smoothies without bananas, fruit smoothies, and protein smoothies.
In this list, I know there’s bound to be something that strikes your fancy. You can go the green smoothie route and add lots of spinach and kale, or go the “replace my sit-down breakfast with a one-handed option” with dairy-free yogurt, milk, and gluten-free oats.
