Lean and Green Fab 4 Smoothie

Healthy and Nutritious Lean and Green Smoothie Recipe

If you’re looking for a simple detox smoothie recipe, this will be your new breakfast BFF. It stimulates bowel movement, is easy on digestion, and provides a healthy dose of skin-loving nutrients, too!

Most common green juices or detox smoothies are high in sugar and low in fat, fiber and protein. This creates a huge initial spike in blood sugar, which leaves you crashing only an hour or two later – hungry, tired and craving. Not to mention, it sets you up for spikes, crashes and cravings the rest of the day.

If you’re trying to detox, drop some extra weight, or simply optimize your energy, you need to kick off your morning with the Fab Four. Protein, fat, fiber and greens calm hunger hormones to leave you feeling full and calm for 4-6 hours without having to snack your way to lunch.

In this smoothie, Be Well by Kelly Vanilla Protein Powder provides 23 grams of clean protein to promote satiety and lean muscle mass. Kale, cucumber, celery and green apple – the greens – are cleansing and rich in antioxidants and micronutrients. Avocado provides both fiber and healthy fat to blunt any blood sugar spike. Fiber rich psyllium husk promotes bowel movement and detox.
