7 Healthy Meal Replacement Smoothie Diet Recipes
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 a healthy meal-replacement smoothie diet comes in and can help with weight-loss. 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, 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!
You can use any other protein powder as a substitute, or omit it altogether.
