Smoothies are an easy way to get more fruits and vegetables into your day, but calories can add up fast. For a smoothie that’s only about 200 calories, follow our formula and use 1 cup fresh fruit or vegetables and/or cooked, frozen vegetables + 1 cup fruit juice. Blueberries and grape juice are featured here.
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 cup grape juice
- 1 banana, cut into chunks and frozen
- ½ cup low-fat plain Greek-style yogurt
- 1 cup ice (Optional)
- 1 teaspoon honey, or to taste
- Step 1
Blend blueberries, grape juice, banana, yogurt, ice, and honey in a blender until smooth, at least 3 minutes.
Other smart blends include: carrots and Granny Smith apple with orange juice and zest, pineapple and mango chunks with pineapple juice, and raspberries with cran-apple juice.
