Tastes Like Melted Chocolate Ice Cream Protein Smoothie - Dairy-free, Plant-Based, Vegan, and Nutritious!

This isn’t your everyday chocolate smoothie recipe. Fiona sneaks mango and tofu into the blend for an extra dose of fiber, antioxidants, calcium, and protein.

The taste and texture of this smoothie will vary depending on the dairy-free protein powder that you use. Make sure you use a type that you like in smoothies. We like plain, unsweetened pea protein, but you might have another favorite.

  3. Can you tell us what brand the dairy-free organic protein powder is? I’ve been looking for one for a while and everything has whey in it. Thanks!
