Want To Drop Pounds? Add These 7 Game-Changing Ingredients To Your Smoothie

When losing weight is your goal, remember this….consistency, consistency, consistency. A new study shows that thick, lower-calorie protein shakes can actually keep you satisfied for longer than a high-calorie thin shake can.  It’s a double-whammy…a low-calorie option that doesn’t leave you starving 20-minutes later.

Still, designing a healthy smoothie with milkshake-like consistency can be a challenge. Here are 7 delicious add-ons to thicken up your shake for powerful results…

1 Tbsp Plain Almond Butter (95 Cals)

Just a spoonful of plain almond butter (I use Justin’s) and you’ll fill up with healthy Omega-3s, AND punch in some extra protein to your blend!

1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (65 Cals)

This is the ultimate protein shake thickener….and, it’s delicious creamy texture gives you 10% of your daily calcium needs.

2 Tbsp Coconut Powder (60 Cals)

With a slight coconut taste, this gluten-free powder has 5 grams of fiber while amplifying its taste.

2 Tbsp Hemp or Flax Seeds (Apx 90 Cals)

Their subtle nutty taste contain a balanced amount of heart-healthy omega 3’s and omega 6’s…which make them an exceptional addition to any shake!

1 Tbsp Chia Seeds (63 Cals)

This super food is a “whole grain,” and are naturally gluten-free. But despite their small size, they’re loaded with fiber, protein, Omege-3 fatty acids. And, they expand in water to make your shake more substantial!

1/4 Avocado (80 Calories)

Also known as “butter fruit,” the versatile avocado is the only fruit that provides a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). Plus, their texture is smooth which instantly thickens your smoothie.

1/2 Frozen Banana (55 Cals)

This sweet treat will trick you into thinking your shake isn’t healthy! But, because bananas are packed with fiber, they’ll help you fight off hunger pangs.


THE BEST TASTING PROTEIN SHAKE EVER!

I consider myself a pro when it comes to protein shakes. Years ago, I began training for a marathon and the workouts were intense! In order to keep my training program at its peak, I needed something to give me extra energy and muscle-repairing nutrients. So I began drinking protein shakes each day. What a difference it made! Decades later, one of my secrets to living a vibrant, healthy life is having a protein shake on a regular basis. It’s a simple thing to do, but it has energizing effects! I’m excited to share this key to optimal health by introducing a protein shake I know is clean, natural, and delicious…Introducing the KATHY SMITH PROTEIN SHAKE!
