High Protein – Low Carb Green Smoothie
This first time I ever heard about a green smoothie I was about ready to vomit! I mean a green, vegetable filled smoothie. Like really? But finally I had come around to trying a small, tiny sip. And I was hooked!
After having such a good experience I decided to play around and make a low carb green smoothie. As most green smoothies, its base revolves around spinach.
I decided to then complement it with avocados, mainly for their texture. I also wanted to give my smoothie a punch of power with some zero carb vanilla protein powder. The protein ads just a bit of sweetener but without making it taste powdery and gross.
As you may have noticed, mason jars are pretty in so of course I got one of my very own and decided to show it off in my smoothie pictures.
If your new to green smoothies, low carb or maybe both, let me save you the struggle and contemplation with this deliciously simple smoothie recipe. This nutrient rich smoothie is perfect as a power snack or 3 minute breakfast.
