Which meal do you recommend replacing with a smoothie?


We recommend replacing breakfast with a protein packed smoothie.


Hi, those smoothies replace everyone of the meals ?


Or only can replace just a meal ?


Hi Diego,


We recommend just replacing one meal a day with one of these smoothies, or other meal replacement smoothies. Breakfast is typically the meal most people use a smoothie to replace, but lunch is also one you can replace a smoothie with.


What are the total carbs in each of these?


I’m doing a low carb diet to begin and would like to change it up with a smoothie if possible.


Protein Power Crunch – 65g/serving


Spinach Banana – 39g/serving


Chocolate Peanut Butter – 56g/serving


Go Green – Not Available


Apple & Cinnamon – 38g/serving


Carrot Cake – 34g/serving


Healthy Start – 49g/serving


Hi! These sound really good! However, I have quite a few allergies. Whey, Gluten, Corn & Soy being just a few that I’m dealing with right now. I was wondering about the protein powder, what would you suggest? I’ve never seen hemp or rice powder… could I make the powder myself??


We’ve never thought to make our own protein powder, but I’m sure you can. That’s a great idea, and one we’ll have to look in to.


Hi Victoria I have allergies too so I buy a pea protein powder. You can get it at most health shops in a variety of flavors. Give it a go.


Thanks for the recipes for the meal replacement smoothies. I want to try almost everyone of them, they sound really good and I never thought of using the combination of ingredients so these are different for me and I like that.


Thanks again


Hi, I saw you mentioned that these smoothies can be used to replace the traditional breakfast and lunch meals…what about dinner? I was looking at the Go Green smoothie as my dinner. Would you recommend that?


Hi Carlos,


Yes, you can use these smoothies as replacements for dinner. The Go Green Smoothie is a great option.


Thanks so much for these I would like to try all, but unfortunately I am allergic to bananas and that seems to be in all of them. Is there anything else you suggest I could substitute this with? Thank you!!


Hi Jennifer,


You can replace the banana with yogurt, avocado, or even tofu. 1/2 banana equals 1/2 cup of any of these previous listed substitutions.


Will these smoothies work better if they are replaced with dinner rather than the breakfast or lunch. I do not like to eat much for dinner I like the feeling of being light in the mornings when I wake up. Please advise


You can use these smoothie replacements for dinner.


I get a stomach ache from eating bananas. Do you know of a good replacement? I see I can buy banana flavoring but what about replacing the nutrition ?


You can replace the banana with yogurt, avocado, or even tofu. 1/2 banana equals 1/2 cup of any of the previous listed substitutions.


Hi can these be prepared over night if I wanted to replace for breakfast?


Yes you can. We recommend that you consume within 24 hours, so as to get the most benefit from the nutrients.


Hello! How many calories would these smoothies be? I’m starting a 1500 calorie diet and wanted to know much calories the smoothies would take up?

Hi is it possible to replace breakfast & lunch with the these meal replacement smoothies & then have a balanced dinner? If so could you eat a protein based snack mid morning between the breakfast smoothie & lunch smoothie & then another protein snack mid afternoon? A protein snack being a hard boiled egg or a handful of nuts say.


Yes it is possible to do two smoothies as meal replacements with a balanced dinner. We recommend that you talk with your health care provider.


Hello There!


My name is Nicole and I suffer from Lupus and Fibromyalgia. I came across this post and was so enamored by how healthy they were and possibly filling. What is the carb intake for all of these smoothies? I want to make sure that I’m getting at least 45 percent of my caloric intake from carbs, 35 from protein, and 20 from fats.


Hi Nicole

Chocolate Peanut Butter

Good day, I can’t take whey Protein in my diet, as it makes me very uncomfortable and bloated. What can I replace it with?


You can use any other protein powder as a substitute, or omit it altogether.


In order to remain happy, healthy, and strong, your body should be getting a certain amount of protein and fiber every day.* This is true for everyone, but it is especially important for those who want to lose weight quickly. Unfortunately, many dieters think that the quickest way to a swimsuit-worthy body is through starvation. The problem with this mentality is that it puts the body into a survival mode, where it begins to burn through muscle rather than stored fat in order to free up important nutrients.


Instead, the best way to lose weight is to monitor food intake, and to make sure that you’re taking in the right kind of foods, like kale or spinach. This is where the meal-replacement smoothie comes in. Meal replacement smoothies give the body a heaping helping of the nutrition it needs, without the added fat and sugars that tend to collect as unwanted flab around the midsection (and elsewhere). Check out our infographic for seven tasty and healthy meal replacement smoothies that you can start trying today!


*Blendtec’s in-house registered dietitian recommends that meal replacements contain at least 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. Getting adequate protein and fiber will increase satiety and help maintain stable blood glucose levels reducing the urge to eat again immediately after consumption.
