12 Healthy Smoothies Under 200 Calories
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?
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 FruityFrozen 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 PoweredThese shakes are extra satisfying, thanks to protein-packed ingredients like fat-free Greek yogurt and protein powder!
Hidden VeggiesIn 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!
