When I need to drop a few pounds quickly, I always rely on smoothies. If I use a smoothie as a meal replacement, I always add a scoop of protein powder and I eat a lot of fresh veggies and fruit. This particular smoothie is super low in calories and high in nutrients. It can be used as a snack and it’s great for controlling those unwanted cravings.
