How to Create a Meal Replacement Smoothie

How to Create a Meal Replacement Smoothie

Are you looking for a quick meal full of nutrients? Try this simple formula to create a quick, satisfying meal.

Meal replacement smoothies can help you power through the day with the right carb + fat + protein ratio. These smoothies are different than your post-workout or snack smoothies because they provide the same nutrients found in a nutritious meal – protein, carbs, healthy fat, vitamins, and minerals – to keep you energized throughout the day.

Try this simple formula to make a well-balanced smoothie packed with nutrient-rich ingredients: 

1. Toss in some dark, leafy greens. Adding greens to your smoothie helps to boost your intake of fiber and antioxidants, providing you with a variety of nutrients required to meet your nutritional needs. Try adding spinach, kale, or mixed greens!  

2. Blend up your favorite fruits. Throw in your favorite fruits to provide freshness and flavor to your smoothies. Not only do fruits build the base for a delicious smoothie, but they are rich in important vitamins and minerals. Some of our favorite fruits include strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas, mango and peaches.  

3. Add a source of protein. Including protein in meal replacement smoothies is important so that you stay full and satisfied for longer while obtaining the energy needed to stay productive. You can use chia seeds, flax seeds, tofu, nuts, or OWYN’s Protein Powder.  

4. Throw in a source of healthy fat. Some excellent sources of healthy fats that make a great addition to smoothies include avocado, sunflower seed butter or nut butter. These ingredients are a great way to create a rich, creamy smoothie that is packed with nutrients. 

5. Liquify with a plant based beverage. There are a wide variety of liquids to choose from to make it easier to blend your smoothie, such as plant based milk, OWYN’s Plant Based Protein Shakes, or even water. 

Check out our meal replacement smoothie incorporating our smoothie formula.
