This smoothie recipe is suitable to replace a meal. I often have a meal-replacement smoothie and find that, with the right ingredients, it can keep me going well past lunchtime if I need it to. The trick is to include some healthy fat and a good dose of protein. Many folks like to use protein powders, but I much prefer using oats or other protein-rich foods. We have put some tips at the end of the post for protein powder substitutes.

The recipe (details on the next page) comes from Liz at TexanErin, who says …

Tart cherries, spicy ginger and the juice of a whole lime are guaranteed to wake up your taste buds after the first sip. For all-day energy, I add Greek yogurt, protein powder and flax seeds. They also make the smoothie super creamy and rich.
