Protein Green Smoothie Nutrition

This highly-nutritious smoothie makes a great breakfast, light lunch, or healthy snack!

This recipe hits on a lot of nutritional points missing from an average person’s day. Whereas most of us struggle to meet the correct amount of fiber required to keep our bodies functioning at tip top shape, this drink delivers an entire day’s worth in one serving. Here’s the nutritional breakdown of our miracle weight loss drink:

  • Calories-452
  • Fiber- 18 grams
  • Protein- 24 grams
  • Potassium- 2779 mg
  • Calcium-695 mg
  • Iron-10 mg
  • Carbohydrates-97 grams

Not All Carbs And Calories Are The Same

This yummy smoothie recipe will cool you down on a hot, Summer day!

You might be saying, “Whoa, whoa, whoa!” after viewing the amount of carbohydrates and calories that our creamy protein green smoothie contains. But before ruling this option out, consider the fact that not all carbs and calories are equal. When you eat foods like pancakes, French toast, pastries, sugary cereals or any other similiar breakfast food, chances are good that you will be consuming the same amount of calories and carbs.

However, your body understands the difference and therefore will metabolize these meals very differently. This smoothie offers an abundance of nutrients, while the other options don’t have much, if anything, going for them. Plus, studies have shown that a plant based diet may not require you to take calories and carbs into account as strictly as you would have to if following an animal based diet. With that being said, if this argument hasn’t sold you on trying our green drink, then perhaps just begin with sipping a halved portion of this meal replacement.

The Keys To Easy Meal Replacement

Make this creamy protein shake for breakfast to start your day off right!

Aloe Vera Juice contains so many benefits that’s it hard to keep focused in the recount. It’s a great detoxifier, aids digestion, and helps prevent heartburn. It’s also a great source of Vitamin B-12, which is great news for people on a plant-based diet. 

On the other hand, beans are another secret ingredient that work miracles on the body. In addition to them being low-fat, high-fiber and high-protein, they also aid digestion and muscle building. If the taste of beans seems off-putting, try freezing them before blending in your smoothie. The added texture is fantastic, and the fact that they are so filling will amaze you.

Drink this daily for a week, and you will notice cravings for sugar and other high-fat hollow-calorie snacks sliding to the wayside. If the number on the scale doesn’t dip quickly, don’t worry. Your pants will button more comfortably and your energy levels will shoot through the roof. 

One last tip. For maximum satiation, take your time in drinking this meal replacement. The slower you eat, the less likely you are to feel hungry so quickly after a meal. Because this drink seems like one that can be knocked down fast, try to take it easy for best absorption of optimal nutrients. Cheers!
