 If you’re counting your calories and love your smoothies? These low-calorie smoothies are super light yet filling enough for breakfast, as a snack, or even a quick small lunch.

The smoothies vary anywhere from 107 calories to 278. Smoothie recipes are pretty popular right now. And for a good reason – weight loss smoothies are a great way to get your fruits and veggies in.

Fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. Yet, only about one in ten of us are getting enough of them.

Smoothies provide a tasty and convenient way to eat those fruits and veggies. But if you’re not careful, even the healthy smoothies can make you pack on the pounds.

For instance, a small Baskin Robbins Fruit Cream Strawberry Smoothie contains 530 calories. That’s as many calories as 3 servings of beef tenderloin.  Yikes!

That’s why I’m sharing 10 low-calorie smoothies. Not only are they tasty, but they’ll keep you in your favorite skinny jeans and will do for great low-calorie snacks. So, you can feel good using it.

What Do You Put in a Smoothie to Lose Weight?

To help you lose weight, your smoothies must have a good balance of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. That’s because protein, fiber, and healthy fats help you feel full longer.

You don’t want your smoothies to contain just fruit. That’s because fruit contains simple sugars which aren’t filling. A good rule of thumb is to add one cup of fruit.

For the liquid, you want to use one cup of milk. If you’re using plant-based milk, it’s best to choose one with higher protein content, such as soy milk.

Tips to Make the Best Low-Calorie Smoothies

First, if you can, use frozen fruit. That’s because frozen fruit makes your smoothies nice and thick – instead of watery like juice.

If you only have fresh fruit, you can use that. But you will need to add some ice to get the right texture.

Also, make sure you place your ingredients in the correct order. Start with liquids first, followed by fruits/veggies, green, and lastly, ice.

    What measures are the glasses though? Small, medium or large? Do you have a rough ml for them? 🙂

    1. Karo @ AllNutritious says:

      These are around 300ml each per glass. If you want a little more of smoothie without the extra calories, I recommend adding some water, ice cubes, or even some the plant-based milk. Almond milk, for example, only has 40 calories per cup, which is very low and super nutritious! 🙂
