I’ve been perfecting the craft of whole-food vegan shakes for nearly a decade now.

When I started, my goal was simply to pack the most possible calories and protein into a drink made from whole plant foods – and you can still find that recipe here! We’ve had many former “skinny vegans” write us to say that this vegan weight gainer shake finally helped them pack on muscle.

My focus over time has shifted: while the calories and protein are still substantial, my objective was to create the single most nutritious, long-term health-promoting yet convenient meal I could eat. Most of the new additions to the recipe come from How Not to Die, by Dr. Michael Greger, which I can’t recommend highly enough. Seriously, go read it!

Yes, there are a lot of ingredients! Once blended, though, it tastes like a chocolatey banana-date smoothie. And keep mind: you can customize the recipe to suit YOU!

Ladies and gentlemen, our…
