7 Meal Replacement Smoothies

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

In order to remain happy, healthy, and strong, your body should be getting a certain amount of protein and fiber every day.* This is true for everyone, but it is especially important for those who want to lose weight quickly. Unfortunately, many dieters think that the quickest way to a swimsuit-worthy body is through starvation. The problem with this mentality is that it puts the body into a survival mode, where it begins to burn through muscle rather than stored fat in order to free up important nutrients.

Instead, the best way to lose weight is to monitor food intake, and to make sure that you’re taking in the right kind of foods, like kale or spinach. This is where the meal-replacement smoothie comes in. Meal replacement smoothies give the body a heaping helping of the nutrition it needs, without the added fat and sugars that tend to collect as unwanted flab around the midsection (and elsewhere). Check out our infographic for seven tasty and healthy meal replacement smoothies that you can start trying today!

*Blendtec’s in-house registered dietitian recommends that meal replacements contain at least 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. Getting adequate protein and fiber will increase satiety and help maintain stable blood glucose levels reducing the urge to eat again immediately after consumption.

    • Hi Diego,
      We recommend just replacing one meal a day with one of these smoothies, or other meal replacement smoothies. Breakfast is typically the meal most people use a smoothie to replace, but lunch is also one you can replace a smoothie with.

    Hi! These sound really good! However, I have quite a few allergies. Whey, Gluten, Corn & Soy being just a few that I’m dealing with right now. I was wondering about the protein powder, what would you suggest? I’ve never seen hemp or rice powder… could I make the powder myself??

  • Rachel

    Thanks for the recipes for the meal replacement smoothies. I want to try almost everyone of them, they sound really good and I never thought of using the combination of ingredients so these are different for me and I like that.

    Thanks again

  • Carlos

    Hi, I saw you mentioned that these smoothies can be used to replace the traditional breakfast and lunch meals…what about dinner? I was looking at the Go Green smoothie as my dinner. Would you recommend that?

  • Jennifer

    Thanks so much for these I would like to try all, but unfortunately I am allergic to bananas and that seems to be in all of them. Is there anything else you suggest I could substitute this with? Thank you!!

  • Sushma

    Will these smoothies work better if they are replaced with dinner rather than the breakfast or lunch. I do not like to eat much for dinner I like the feeling of being light in the mornings when I wake up. Please advise

  • Sue

    I get a stomach ache from eating bananas. Do you know of a good replacement? I see I can buy banana flavoring but what about replacing the nutrition ?

  • Kelsey

    Hello! How many calories would these smoothies be? I’m starting a 1500 calorie diet and wanted to know much calories the smoothies would take up?

  • Tina

    Hi is it possible to replace breakfast & lunch with the these meal replacement smoothies & then have a balanced dinner? If so could you eat a protein based snack mid morning between the breakfast smoothie & lunch smoothie & then another protein snack mid afternoon? A protein snack being a hard boiled egg or a handful of nuts say.

    Hello There!

    My name is Nicole and I suffer from Lupus and Fibromyalgia. I came across this post and was so enamored by how healthy they were and possibly filling. What is the carb intake for all of these smoothies? I want to make sure that I’m getting at least 45 percent of my caloric intake from carbs, 35 from protein, and 20 from fats.

  • Stephen

    Hi, I saw your recipes and they sound great, but I am allergic to almonds. Is there a substitute for almond milk and raw almonds? Thanks.

    • Jessica Andreasen

      Hi, Stephen! Yes, you can use your milk of choice in place of almond milk and you can either omit the almonds or replace them with another nut of choice. Happy blending!

  • Tim

    I need to stay on a Mediterranean diet, or atleast low fat because I have 5 Stents in my Heart , Can you say these smoothies would meet the need to be heart healthy?

  • Lajecia
