This healthy, lean Green Power Protein Smoothie recipe is dairy free, full of omega-3s and plant protein (chia seeds, hemp seeds and almond butter) and a clean alternative to traditional protein shakes for weight loss and optimal health. It’s ideal as a meal replacement or a snack, and is a great post workout treat.
I love including one protein smoothie to my daily meal plan! The combination options are limitless so they never get boring. It’s also a great way to add additional protein to your diet (something most of us ladies struggle with). Mix it with your vitamins for a healthy breakfast option or take it to work for a filling lunch or snack.
