12 Healthy Smoothies Under 200 Calories

Jul 10 2019
Question@2x Hi Lisa,

I just found out my afternoon smoothie from a local shop has… (wait for it!) 550 calories! Do you have any easy recipes that won’t tank my daily calorie budget?

Answer@2x Hi Smoothie Operator,

Fruity blended drinks fall into the health-halo category. They seem nutritious, but they’re often loaded with calories. Why? Oversized portions and high-calorie add-ins like sugary syrup, granola, and nut butters. Luckily, it’s super easy to save cash & calories by DIYing your smoothies at home. Here are a dozen of my top recipes!

Super Fruity

Frozen fruit is a great staple to keep on hand for smoothie making. (Mango is my favorite!) Just watch out for added sugar… The only ingredient on the list should be the fruit itself.

Protein Powered

These shakes are extra satisfying, thanks to protein-packed ingredients like fat-free Greek yogurt and protein powder!

Hidden Veggies

In this case, it IS easy being green… We snuck nutrient-packed veggies like spinach into these smoothies, but all you’ll taste is fruity deliciousness. By the way, the Shamrock Shake swap has 20g protein!

Amazon Find of the Day: NutriBullet 12-Piece High-Speed Blender/Mixer System 

If you're still using an original Magic Bullet -- or don’t even have one -- this find is for you. The mini blender has a high-torque motor and is just right for blending up smoothies, shakes, and frozen cocktails! Every kitchen should have one. It’s especially helpful when you’re making one drink at a time, which can be tricky in a full-sized blender. This pack comes with accessories like a tall cup with a handle and 2 resealable lids. TOTAL must-have.
