HG's Too-Good Two-Berry Citrus Smoothie

Just Fruit Me!

Want a large-and-in-charge fruity frozen beverage without all those annoying

extra calories and sugar grams? Duh, of course you do! Check out the latest

guilt-free HG sensation...


1 cup frozen unsweetened strawberries

1/2 cup frozen unsweetened blueberries

1/2 tsp. Crystal Light Classic Orange Sunrise powdered drink mix (half an On

The Go packet or 1/8th of a tub)

1 no-calorie sweetener packet

or two). Meanwhile, dissolve powdered drink mix and sweetener in 10 oz. of

cold water. Stir well, and then pour drink mixture over the fruit in the

blender. Blend at medium-high speed until thoroughly mixed. If blending

Fruit Smoothie, Average

Smooth Failing

Okay, we know what you're thinking. How can a fruit smoothie be bad? Well,

the problem with most of 'em is that they're oversized and full of

unnecessary ingredients -- piles of sugar, scoops of honey, full-fat milk

and/or yogurt, high-calorie juices... sometimes, even spoonfuls of peanut

butter or sherbet! And while there's nothing wrong with tossing back a

protein-packed drink as a meal replacement, a sippable snack with over 350

calories is a little absurd. And remember, that's just an average. A small

Strawberry Banana Fruit Blast Smoothie from Baskin-Robbins will cost you

490 calories. And even if you request the "Make It

Skinny" version of Smoothie King's Grape Expectations II, the smallest

serving will still have 451 calories, and the largest size

will pack in 902 calories. In fact, a few of Smoothie

K.'s crazier smoothies top out at over 1,500 calories and 50g fat -- and you can bet there are other places serving smoothies with

scary stats like that! Give those freakish drinks the cold shoulder! Especially

considering you can now indulge in a totally delicious fruit smoothie for only

around 100 calories. It's HG's Too-Good Two-Berry Citrus Smoothie, and it'll

knock your flip-flops right off!
