Turn Your Green Smoothie Into A Meal Replacement

Turn Your Green Smoothie Into A Meal Replacement

I love green smoothies. In fact, any time is a great time for a super nutritious smoothie – snack, breakfast,  post workout fuel, lunch, dessert, dinner, late night treats – you name it!

Our bodies crave and need minerals and vitamins to keep going all day long. That’s why blending leafy greens with fresh fruit is always a great meal replacement.

However, let’s get one thing straight. Your body needs different things to thrive at certain times of day. For example, actual meals, such as breakfast, lunch and dinner are very important. But, you can easily swap them out for a green smoothie due to its nutritional value. You just have swap them out the right way, which is exactly what I’ll show you today…

Are green smoothies filling?

Of course they are! I drink them for meals all the time. I must admit that it’s usually because I’m in a hurry and just need to quickly down something. However, sometimes I’m just trying to slim down or detox (especially after festivities). Here are some of the benefits you can reap if you replace a meal with a green smoothie:
-High energy levels
-Less bloating
-Accelerated weight loss

The most important thing to consider when blending meal replacement green smoothies is to include proteins and healthy fats. This healthy green smoothie recipe I’m about to share will give you the energy you need to cruise through to your next meal or snack and keep you feeling full. So, try out this recipe then after a week, let us know how it goes.

Meal replacement green smoothie recipe

Add the remaining ingredients, and blend until smoothie.
