Smoothies Under 250 Calories
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
- ADD ICE LAST: Adding ice first may cause you to overblend, leaving you with a watery drink.
- IF YOU USE FROZEN FRUIT: You may not need as much ice. Frozen fruit is as nutrient-packed as fresh—just choose those with no added sugars.
- NOT A FAN OF DAIRY? Most milk alternatives (soy, rice) have roughly the same calories as 1% milk—about 100 per cup.
