3 Best Meal Replacement Shake Recipes (Plant Based)

Updated: Feb 11, 2019


A meal replacement shake shouldn't be something to "curb your appetite," it should do exactly what the name implies: replace a meal! Your ideal, typical meal contains protein, clean carbs and healthy fats, and putting these into a convenient shake form allows you to hit all your macro and micronutrients with ease...with the right ingredients of course.

Have fun playing with these flavor profiles and making your own versions of our favorite meal replacement shakes. Here's a few more tips and tricks from the Elevated Eats Team.


Shake Tips:

  1. Load up on the micronutrients! Powders are awesome for sneaking in nutrients we'd otherwise miss out on and they mix perfectly into shakes. Throw in some spirulina, maca, camu, moringa, or collagen powder to really boost the health factor.

  2. Use frozen fruit/freeze your bananas in slices instead of using ice to prevent it getting watered down.

  3. Bulk up your shakes with carbs without adding sugar by using oats, BUT blend the oats into a powder before adding other ingredients so they mix better.

  4. Ensure your shake contains a minimum of 20g of protein. Use full fat greek yogurt as an alternative fat and protein source if dairy doesn't upset your stomach.

  5. Keep a greens powder mix on hand if you don't have fresh produce.
