Green Protein Smoothie

Green Protein Smoothie Recipe

If you're anything like me, you probably struggle to get in your veggies.

I don't eat anywhere close to the recommended daily intake of green vegetables. It's not because I necessarily dislike vegetables...

But between the price, keeping them fresh, and putting in the work to prepare them ... It becomes too big of a pain to keep up with at times.

That's when I had the idea to make a greens protein smoothie that I could drink every morning, and actually enjoy!

I've put a lot of work into mastering this recipe, and I know you'll love it. Most greens smoothies taste like ... well, grass.

This one doesn't only taste great, but it also has the nutrients and protein to fuel your day and make up for the vegetables you may be missing in your diet.

Who is This Green Protein Smoothie Good For?

This green protein smoothie is awesome for anybody looking to optimize their overall health and wellness. Opti-Greens 50 alone provides the body with a wide variety of nutrients, digestive enzymes, and even a probiotic.

For anybody pursuing fitness goals, this is a protein-packed green smoothie with 38 grams of protein and only 450 calories! The shake is definitely a little high in carbohydrates at 52 grams for a smoothie. If you're looking to add this to your nutrition plan, you may consider modifying the smoothie slightly to fit your goals.

For somebody looking to gain weight, try adding some more calories with fruit or peanut butter. If you're looking to lose body fat or weight, you may consider taking out the banana or doing half a banana to eliminate some calories.

Is This Green Protein Shake Vegan Friendly?

This green protein smoothie is NOT vegan friendly. The Level-1 Cinnamon Cookie Batter has milk in it. That doesn't mean you can't replace it though.

If you are vegan or follow a plant-based diet, just replace Level-1 with our plant-based protein powder, Vegan Power Pro. My favorite flavor to use for this green protein smoothie is the classic French Toast flavor.
