Whether your diet requires you to be dairy free, or you just prefer it that way, you’ll know that sometimes store-bought smoothie recipes can be loaded with dairy (and sugar). So for those of us who want a quick and easy alternative here’s a great almond milk smoothie recipe – it’s so simple and fuss free, you’ll be looking for excuses to whip one of these up!

easy dairy free smoothies

I particularly enjoy smoothies for breakfast. They’re nice and easy on the digestive system in the morning, and an easy way to pack in some fruit.

A few years back, I had to turn to a dairy-free diet due to becoming lactose-intolerant. I felt at first as if my dietary options had been seriously narrowed. When you love food like me, it’s not an easy adjustment to make.

After some quick research, I was so thrilled to discover dairy-free recipes like this one, to expand my culinary options once again.

This smoothie is so easy to make, you’ll feel like you’re cheating. Don’t worry, you haven’t skipped a step, it’s just that simple! A tiny bit of prep and then a quick blast in the blender and you’re good to go.

The bananas and mango bring a sweetness to the smoothie without using any refined sugars, and the blueberries and strawberries give a beautiful tartness. All of this is rounded off with the creaminess of the almond milk.

As well as being quick and delicious, there’s some real feel-good stuff in here. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and all kinds of other goodies, and are renowned superfood. Bananas are slow-release, meaning you’ll feel full for a long time. If I have one of these smoothies for breakfast, the banana keeps me feeling full until lunchtime.

The great thing about whizzing up one of these smoothies is that it’s ideal for a busy lifestyle. Almond milk often has a great shelf-life, and berries can be stored in the freezer, so it’s likely that you’ll always have the ingredients to hand when you need them. They’re also kid-friendly – if you chop the fruit up for little fingers, they’ll have great fun chucking it all into the blender and blitzing it up.

I hope you have fun making this smoothie. It serves two, but I’ve a sneaking suspicion that you might enjoy it too much to share…
