Our “Summer Smoothie Marathon” has begun! Each weekday in June, we’ll be releasing a new healthy & delicious smoothie from our archives; and let us tell you, they’re all AMAZING. To kick things off, here’s “The Classic Weight Loss Smoothie”! This is one of our classic smoothies for weight-loss; really low in calories, but extra-filling. It’s great to have in place of lunch or dinner as an aid to losing those unwanted pounds; and at a mere 219 calories per serving, it’s not difficult to see how. This yummy mixture is also jam packed with fiber (50% of your DV), protein (15.5 grams), calcium and Vitamin C! After you give this smoothie a try, leave a rating & comment below, and we know you’ll enjoy it. Happy Cooking! – Tasty25 Staff
