Metagenics protein powder is the practitioner-range product that is used to help increase the nutritional value of the smoothie without adding sugar. It may also help improve the texture and taste of the smoothie. With the extra fibre, it also helps increase the sense of fullness that will keep you fuller for at least 4 hours or longer.
You may omit protein powder in this recipe or replace Metagenics protein powder with another brand if preferred. Please keep in mind that protein powders (with different brands) have different nutritional values, and often time contain high sugar and may not be suitable for smoothie recipes.
