Put a little green in your machine with this refreshing smoothie!
This smoothie from Lisa Suriano at Veggiecation® is full of protein and fruity flavors to boost your energy all day long. Try it for a healthy pick-me-up any time of the day or year!
This smoothie is low in calories and high in protein, making it a great option if you’re trying to manage your weight. Not only does protein keep you feeling full, it also helps build and maintain muscle mass and is important for growth and development in kids and teens.
In addition to being a good source of protein, soybeans are high in polyunsaturated fat, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Eating soybeans in moderation may help improve cholesterol levels and lower risks for heart disease and stroke.
Want even more protein in your diet? Use Greek yogurt instead of regular, which will serve up twice as much protein.
