Over recent years smoothies have become a popular meal replacement. Delicious smoothies offer us a quick and easy way to combine some of Nature’s healthiest produce into a tasty treat that fills the gap, and gives you an instant energy boost.
All you need is a blender and fresh ingredients.
If you’re new to the smoothie world, you can even find plenty of instructions on how to blend the perfect smoothie.
Appropriately chosen, smoothies make good replacements for any meal of the day. They’re perfect on the go meals for busy people on the run, far better than a bag of chips, a sugary health bar, or a burger–none of which are very nourishing. All of which are more than capable of igniting a sugar rush along with cravings and weight gain potential.
Smoothies can help to avoid weight gain by offering dieters a nutritious and filling meal option. They’re packed with fiber that can keep your appetite at bay, avoiding the urge to snack when those hunger pangs start to bite.
Homemade smoothies are far better than store-bought products which tend to pack the calories since so many of them contain added sugar. A good nutritious homemade smoothie should contain fresh fruit and vegetables, protein, and fat. As you can see, these four meal replacements tick all the boxes. They offer a great way to join the smoothie trend.
Try them all, and then add your own small tweaks to make them your own with a drop of vanilla, a knob of ginger, or a handful of walnuts. You’ll soon be making customized smoothies for all your friends and family.
