Most smoothies are usually less protein because they focus more on using fruits and vegetables. However, it should be noted that protein actually plays an important role because it can be the main energy substitute for carbohydrates.
Adding a spoonful of Greek yogurt, kefir, milk protein or protein powder can be an excellent source of protein in smoothies. With enough protein, we can hold hunger longer.
2. Reduce Sugar Levels

Glucose is one of the biggest contributors to fat for the body. While smoothies often contain juice, milk and other sweeteners.
For that, one of the tips for making the next smoothie is to pay attention to the sugar content in its manufacture. Both sugar and honey have the same high glucose levels. Instead, replace sugar with fruit high fiber such as avocados, berries, and apples.
