Let’s be honest, our lives are busy and sometimes sit-down meals can be tricky to fit in. This smoothie is the solution to this dilemma! When it comes to making a complete meal into a smoothie, it’s important that the smoothie have vegetables, a little fruit for sweetness and flavor, healthy fat and protein; basically everything that you would find in a meal. This helps to ensure not only satiety but also that it’s well balanced.
I used pea protein, but you can use another type of plant-based protein in its place like brown rice protein, hemp hearts or others! You can also swap in different greens and fruit sources as well to mix it up. Enjoy this tasty and well balanced smoothie!
