I was recently contacted through this website by a visitor who had noticed that we had stopped releasing articles involving recipes about a year back…and she was right!
What was the reason for this?
Well, no reason in particular really – we just had a lot of (what we thought were) interesting health subjects we wanted to cover first.
This message concluded with the lady in question suggesting a recipe topic that was not exactly covered that often online – soy protein shake recipes. This turned out to be a pretty cool suggestion…

The Berry Blast Soy Milk Smoothie
Apparently, this is one of the easiest soy-based smoothie recipes you can find online…so we figured we should include it first on this article (well, we’re not all at the level of Gordon Ramsey – are we?).
It takes under 5 minutes to create.
Ingredients (For 1 Serving)
- 1 cup soy milk
- 10 blueberries
- 10 blackberries
- 1/2 banana
A simple enough process really – place all of the ingredients above in a blender and turn on for about 10 seconds. Give it a good stir and Bingo – ready to drink!
If you find the smoothie a little sour or bland you can always swap over the fruits for blueberry jam (not exactly great for you dieters out there – but sweeter all the same!).
NOTE: This will probably end up being quite a pricey smoothie if you opt to drink it every day. Blueberries and Blackberries ain’t exactly the cheapest fruit you will find at a grocers…
Peanut Butter Soy Special
Are you partial to a spoonful of Nutella?
Like spreading a generous helping of peanut butter on your toast in the morning?
Below is a pretty nifty smoothie invention combing both the above ingredients…
Ingredients (For Two Servings)
- 1 Banana
- 1 1/2 tbsp Nutella
- 1 tbsp Smooth peanut butter
- 1/2 cup Vanilla Ice Cream
- 1/2 cup Chocolate Ice Cream
- 300 ml Soy milk
- 150 ml Water
Simply boil a little water in a pan and add both the peanut butter and Nuttella, then stir them both in until the mixture is nice and smooth. Poor the mix, along with the soy milk, into the blender.
Cut the banana in quarters on place in the blender – then add either chocolate ice cream or vanilla ice cream (or both if you’re feeling a little adventurous!!).
Bend it all up and drink it all down – lovely!

Energy Soy Protein Shake
A energy-bursting smoothie that is ram-packed with protein and isoflavones, and is great at giving your immune system a boost. A lovely shake that makes an ideal choice of breakfast.
Ingredients (For One Serving)
- 500 ml soya milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 walnuts
- 2 medium apple
- 4 drops vanilla essence
- 1 sprig mint leaves
First of all – cut up the apples and leave two very thin slices to one side (this will be used later as a nice garnish). Add the apples, soya milk, sugar and vanilla essence into the blender and blend for a couple of minutes.
Pour pureed mixture into a tall glass.
Crush up the walnuts and use, along with apple slices and washed sprig of mint leaves, to garnish the smoothie.
And now for something a little different…
Ingredients (Makes a total of 14 servings!!!)
- 1 cup (each) fresh fruit
- 3 tea spoons of sugar
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 1/2 milk (or soy milk)
Put the fruit you’ve chosen to use in a cup then mash up a little with a fork – add yogurt, sugar, then milk. Put into the blender and blend down until you have a smoothie like texture that will settle nicely in the ice trays.
You can enjoy the Icy Pops after about two hours but I prefer leaving them in the freezer overnight (the texture of them is much nicer the next day!).
