Whether you turn to smoothies as a healthy breakfast option, nutrient-packed snack, or post-workout pick-me-up, it’s hard to argue with the ease and portability of these nourishing treats.

If you’re getting tired of the same basic fruit/milk/yogurt/nut butter/juice combo over and over again, we’ve got the perfect recipe to switch things up: our Spicy Mocha Smoothie made with JOI. Even better—it’s got a caffeine kick.

And of course, milk made with JOI almond or cashew nutbase brings everything together into an irresistibly creamy, as-caffeinated-as-you-want vegan treat that will keep you full and satisfied.
