Turn Your Green Smoothie Into a Meal

3.18.2020


Looking for a green smoothie meal replacement? You’ve found it with our tutorial on top ingredients to add to your smoothie to transform it into a meal. Check out these tips and our formula for turning your smoothie into the perfect, healthy meal.


Ready to chug that green smoothie for breakfast (or lunch or dinner)?!

Do green smoothies help you lose weight?

Now, I know why most of us want to turn a smoothie into a meal: weight loss. Yet there’s a sustainable way to do it and a yo-yo diet way. If you want lasting results, keep on reading.

Green smoothies are the gateway to a healthier and happier life. By making them at home (and not buying powders or expensive versions at juice bars) you can make this a sustainable habit… and that how lasting results happen.

Swapping a meal for a green smoothie is a great way to focus on nourishing your body and decreasing calories… if you make the right kind of smoothie. The more basic, plant-based you get (ex: pure fruits and veggies), the better off you’ll be.

Now, before you replace any of your meals with green smoothies, we’ve got a few rawkstar tips and suggestions. This will keep you from feeling “hangry” in between meals (hungry + angry = hangry). Don’t worry, we’ve all been there!

3 Steps 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
  • Tofu

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.

  • Avocado
  • Coconut oil (or mct 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)

Part 3 : Put ’em together and this is what you get…


Healthy Fat + Plant-based Protein = Meal Replacement Boosters

Green smoothies are the perfect fast food and adding these boosters will save you tons of time in the kitchen and keep you away from any drive-thru food that will wreck havoc on your body. We want you to be healthy and strong!

Use one of these meal replacement booster combos in your next green smoothie. The boosts are measured to work with our plant-based green smoothie recipes you can find throughout the blog here.

  • #1: 2 tbs chia seeds + 2oz silken tofu

    I have a Vitamix and have . been enjoying morning smoothies for some time now. However I am learning and enjoying your articles. I have been mixing hemp hearts , chia seeds and flax seeds in equal amounts and add a heaping tablespoon to every smoothie, looks like I should increase the amounts. I use coconut oil in cooking but have never added it to my smoothies. I try to use as much local fruit and berries[ strawberries, blueberries, cranberries] that I can get in season, and also freeze a lot for the winter months when fresh fruit is scarce & expensive. I found that the greens blend up much better when blended before adding the fruit etc. good tip , Thanx. I started on the quest a few days early as I could not wait & thus I am a few days ahead of your daily plan. I have also been adding more greens than I had & enjoy them. If I have any left over salad this often ends up in the smoothie with interesting results. I do not do face book etc. & rarely respond to surveys etc. but I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your articles.
