A nice and simple answer here for you, absolutely a frozen smoothie can replace meals.
Breakfast, lunch or dinner can all be replaced at some stage.
Snacks too? Of course.
Even brunch? Yes, even brunch is replaceable.
What about the snack after dinner in-between my favourite TV Shows and sleeping? Maybe, is it within your dietary guidelines?
There is a myriad of reasons why you would choose to go for a healthy frozen smoothie over a meal.
They’re more convenient than ever before, they’re delicious, there’s endless variety and much more!
We aren’t saying smoothies are better than your meals, but isn’t it great to have options?
In this post, we’ll look at some reasons you may want to replace some of your meals with smoothies, also some considerations to make if you choose to replace a meal with a smoothie and how each of our frozen smoothie cubes can help you with your decision for an adequate meal replacement.
Sounds easy huh, well that’s because it is!
Why should I swap?
Making a frozen smoothie for yourself can be so much quicker than preparing a meal from scratch.
There is also less to clean up and your smoothie is much quicker to consume.
Not that we recommend rushing your meals (learn more about this in the ‘Secret Ingredient’ section part of this "How can I tell if my smoothie is healthy?" post).
Easier to digest
Are you having some digestive issues right now and your body is asking for gentle, easily digested foods?
A smoothie can be a great way to get something in your stomach that is healthy and easy for your body to break down.
You can carry around a smoothie really easily.
No need to heat them up or bring more than a spoon, keep it cool or at room temperature during the day and drink when it’s convenient for you.
Or just sip away at your desk and keep working.
Perhaps you just want something different and a frozen smoothie is what you’re feeling you need to break the monotony of the day to day eating choices.
With your choice of toppings and extra ingredients you can have a different smoothie every single day of the week.

If you’re struggling to get in your daily requirements for fruits and vegetables?
Sounds great, what else do I need to know?
So after reading the above you’ve decided you’re going to substitute a few meals for smoothies this week.
Is there anything else I need to think about when making this decision?
First, consider which meal the smoothie is replacing.
- What would you usually eat in this meal?
- Is the smoothie giving you the same or even more nutritious benefits?
If yes, go right ahead, blend and drink that smoothie.
If not, consider adding in more nutritious ingredients to the smoothie.
For instance, you might be wanting a high protein lunch after a tough gym session.
In this instance you could consider adding in a protein powder to your smoothie.
Not sure which type of protein to add to your smoothie?
We’ve got you covered, you can read all about the different proteins to add to your smoothies in an article we have.
Or you could look at your daily diet to see if there is any other types of ingredients you need to add.
- Is there any gaps in your diet?
- Are you getting enough of your macronutrients?
- How about your vitamins and minerals?
- Are you getting enough vegetables?
If you’re unsure you could consider working with a nutritionist to help you through these decisions.
The right type of smoothie can help with all of these!
And finally on more thing that needs to be considered with the plan to replace some meals with a frozen smoothie.
Are you enjoying your smoothies at the moment and how could you enjoy them even more?
Perhaps it’s a dash of cinnamon or some goji berries sprinkled on top that could change it for you and also make your smoothies even more nutritious than they are currently.
