Smoothies can be healthy, especially if you make them yourself. I came across a sweet smoothie recipe that I wanted to share with you that’s not only packed with protein, but also full of nutritious veggies. If you want the best of both worlds, this may be the perfect meal-replacement smoothie.
The thing you have to watch about smoothies is the sugar content. This is especially problematic when it comes to smoothies purchased at restaurants or food vendors.
When they’re packed full of fruit juice or frozen yogurt, they end up being all carbs and sugar. Not only will this make you crash within a couple hours, it will also contribute to weight gain if you don’t burn off all those extra calories.
So I generally recommend making your own smoothies at home. All you need is a decent blender or a magic bullet, and some easy ingredients on hand.
