  1. @Kirsty Macandrew Thank you so much for your question! The calorie count came out to 388 for this smoothie recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ Try it and let me know what you think!

  2. Well done Lunden. I know quite similar recipe but don't you think that frozen fruit and spinach have already lost quite a bit of nutrition and vitamins? Wouldn't it be better to substitute for a fresh mango or any other available and cheaper fruit? ๐Ÿ™‚ and what do you think about adding some real already mixed protein powder to make it PROTEIN smoothie? thanks a lot and great work.. looking great btw ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. @Pavel Scepka Yes! Feel free to add fresh fruit and spinach if you would like. Frozen lasts longer & is less expensive. Did you know Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein?? But, of course you could use protein powder as a substitution for Greek yogurt! Thanks so much for the question & compliment. Keep watching ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am so glad that you tried the recipe & liked it! I always am starving after a workout too, and this shake really does the trick! You are very welcome and feel free to let me know any topics you would like to see for future videos! Have a GREAT day!

  5. @ReniarRad thanks for the question. You can buy it in the stores here in US or I make my own with this special powerful blender. Don't worry about it too much, I just do it because I really enjoy the flavor and I have never been one to enjoy the taste of milk so I use it for my shakes and I can even drink it plain. The cool thing about this smoothie is you can use whatever liquid you prefer ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for the question. Keep watching & have a great week.

  6. Hi ReniarRad,

    you are very welcome! Yeah, try it without sweetening and let me know what you think. ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you did the road warrior workout. Remember: no pain no gain! :))

  7. Heyy!!… how are you??… Im from Dominican Republic. Im writing because i would like to know by which i could replace chia seeds because in my country i didnt find it in any market!… Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. @Jaime Puedes hacer el batido sin yogur griego si eres intolerante a la lactosa. Algunos mercados de alimentos naturales tienen proteรญna en polvo a base de plantas (y leche deslactosada) que puedes utilizar tambiรฉn. Muy buena pregunta!

  9. @Aqsa Motahhir So glad you subscribed!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I stay motivated by my friends, my family and knowing how awesome it is for my body and mind to stay fit healthy and active. AHHH you HAVE to make sure that you eat. If you do not eat your body will not reach your fitness and health goals! Keep watching my videos for more tips to help each week.
