By far the greatest complaint I hear (and said before in the past myself) is that smoothies don’t keep people full or satisfied for long.
“An hour after my smoothie I’m already hungry!” was one reader’s comment.
That’s because most people don’t make their smoothies with satiating ingredients. Heck, a lot of “smoothies” I see people drink include nothing but fruit juice, ice, and some pieces of fruit. If your smoothies sound remotely like that, it’s no wonder you’re ravenous shortly after drinking it.
But my smoothies keep me full for hours, and they’re incredibly tasty and have a lot of versatility.
And those are two things I don’t compromise with my food (especially the first meal of the day): it must taste great and keep me satisfied for hours.
