My favorite mix is spinach, apple, banana, orange juice and a scoop of whey protein. The first week I made smoothies I didn't have any protein and I found I was getting really hungry quickly. I now add about a scoop of chocolate whey protein to my smoothie and I stay full until 10:00 am (I drink my smoothie at 6:45 am most mornings)
Here are some tips I've found for my smoothies!
- Portion out your smoothies every Sunday for the entire week. Place everything that needs to be cut up or shredded into a plastic baggie and store in your fridge! Saves lots of time
- Peel your apples. Trust me.
- Protein helps. You won't get super bulky as a female, don't worry. It's not just for body builders.
- My stomach is sensitive to all of the acid in the fruit, so I eat two eggs or a piece of toast with peanut butter to help soak some of it up. If you have acid reflex try this!
How do you make your smoothies? Have you tried one for dinner instead?
