Summer is offiicially here, and one of our favorite ways to cool off is with a refreshing, frosty smoothie. Some days, we’re all about the fruit—peaches, pineapple, strawberries, or mango thrown into a blender with some vegan milk or coconut water, and, boom! Breakfast is served. Other days, we crave a creamy milkshake concoction, loaded up with ingredients like cocoa powder, dates, cold-brew coffee, and even cookies or ice cream. So VegNews’ editors want to know—what’s your favorite blend, the one you can’t stop making again and again? Is it that pre-workout acai shake that helps you power through a run or swim, or that after-dinner, chocolate-mint blend that tastes just like dessert? Are you all about green smoothies packed with leafy greens and superfood powders? We all have our fave, so here’s your chance to share it with the world and have it possibly be crowned the Best Vegan Smoothie Ever by VegNews. And, of course, we’ve got an amazing prize for our winning smoothie pro! You’ll receive an Ultimate Smoothie Kit from our friends at Solgar, which includes three large tubs of Spoonfuls Vegan Protein Nutritional Powder in Vanilla Chai, Chocolate Coconut, and Mixed Berry—plus a super-handy, portable blender and fun smoothie swag!
