How to turn a green smoothie into a meal
The key to replacing meals with green smoothies is including healthy fats and proteins. Healthy fats and proteins are the way to go if you want to power up with a green smoothie meal replacement. This combo will keep you feeling full and give you the energy you need to cruise right through 'til your next snack or meal. Below are our favorite options for green smoothie meal replacement boosters:
Step 1 // Pick a Plant-Based Protein
Plant-based proteins keep your body full and give you tons of energy. They also help repair your muscles, which is perfect for that post-workout buzz. Oh, kale to the yeah!
- Hemp hearts
- Chia seeds
- Plant-based protein powder
- Rolled oats
Step 2 // Pick a Healthy Fat
Healthy fats protect your heart, keep your energy levels up, boost metabolism, and lower bad cholesterol levels. So please don't skip the fats. They're actually really, really good for you! And these ingredients below make your green smoothies extra creamy.
- Coconut oil
- Almond butter
- Chia seeds (yep, here they are again! These babies are loaded with healthy fats and protein, making them a great everyday booster)
