Meal Replacement Protein Smoothie

Updated: Mar 25, 2020

This smoothie includes proteins from real food - no protein powder required! It is low in carbohydrate and high in healthy fats, which help to slow the digestion and absorption of the proteins and keep you feeling full. As a bonus, this shake provides nearly half of your recommended calcium intake.
