Everyone loves a smoothie. But let's face it-- all smoothies are not created equally. Some smoothies are basically glorified milkshakes and high-calorie juices. But if they're done right, smoothies are an outstanding meal replacement or a wonderful treat in the middle of the day. "If you want to lose weight and feel healthier, are a great fitness snack that can help you pack in vitamins and minerals, as well as helping you get more protein into your diet!" according to Trimmed & Toned. "Smoothies can also help keep your hunger at bay and stop you reaching for unhealthy snacks before lunchtime hits. Slightly tweak the ingredients or serving sizes and they can help anyone hit their fitness targets, regardless if they want to bulk up and add muscle or slim down and lose fat."
One of our favorite recipes is for the French Toast Protein Shake, which is only 180 calories per shake with a whopping 36 grams of protein. Even better? There's only 4 grams of sugar and 7 grams of carbs per serving!
