protein smoothie

Smoothies are fabulous for the hot weather. They are also a really great way of packing a lot into a liquid meal on the go. If you are using a smoothie as a main meal, it is important to add some complex carbs to keep you going. Try adding a few tablespoons of quinoa flakes or oat bran.
