This protein smoothie really has it all: proteins, healthy fats, fiber, and phytonutrients. On top of that, it tastes great and is super satisfying!

 

When enjoying this (or any) smoothie, my tip as a nutritionist is to enjoy it slowly (maybe over the course of 15-30 min) and try to chew it a bit as you eat it. I know that may seem counterintuitive to chew a creamy smoothie, but digestion begins in our mouth when food is mixed with juices that start the breakdown process.
