Fiesta Savory Smoothie


This Savory Smoothie is high in protein, loaded with veggies, savory flavors, and is incredibly delicious. If you’re looking for new smoothie flavors, this is a great recipe to venture out.

Savory Smoothie with Cilantro

This savory smoothie was inspired by the slow carb movement, which is a great way to lean up and build muscle too. The Slow-Carb Diet, made popular in Tim Ferriss’ book The 4-Hour Body, has taken the world by storm. The idea behind the diet is pretty simple: eliminate all sugar, even from fruit, and focus on eating protein-rich foods and healthy “slow-carbs,” including tons of veggies, to help you lose weight.

I don’t personally believe in eliminating all sugars, yet I think having this smoothie for a meal isn’t a bad thing. There’s some days I crave more vegetables and don’t want something sweet— and this smoothie hits the spot.

Rather than embracing a Slow Card Lifestyle, I believe in a plant-powered lifestyle. Where we eat as many plant-based whole foods as we can to increase nutrients.

Plant-Based Savory Smoothie

Our slow-carb savory smoothie, Protein Fiesta,  is a fantastic meal replacement. It’s 100% savory, no fruit allowed! We’ve used Mexican flavors (tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, spices, etc.) plus a good hit of plant-based protein using chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and our favorite protein powder from The Natural Citizen. And don’t worry, there are plenty of leafy greens in there too.
