Healthy Low-Calorie Smoothies

Bingo: Press a button and serve up most of your family's daily fruit intake. The recommended goal is 2 cups of fruit a day, and these 12-ounce blends go a long way toward that; some have a few veggies, too. If someone's a picky eater, well, he or she doesn't need to know you mixed beets in with the berries—until after they serve up a big smile.

First up, Berries and Beets.

1 cup fresh blueberries + 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries + 1/3 cup sliced, cooked beets + 1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt + 1/4 cup fresh orange juice + 1 teaspoon light agave nectar
