From breakfast to dessert, smoothies are a quick, please-everyone solution; they require little prep (just toss everything in a blender and press a button) and are completely customizable. To make smoothie prep even easier, keep your freezer stocked with frozen fruit.
These deliciously frosty drinks can be sipped for a snack or a meal. Pay attention to portion sizes and higher-calorie ingredients (like frozen yogurt or nut butter) to make sure you don’t overdo it. A snack-sized smoothie should be about 150-200 calories, and to make your smoothie a healthful meal, shoot for more protein and 350-450 calories (and less sugary ingredients).
Start the day with any of these fruit-filled drinks.
Protein-packed smoothies are your best option after exercise, they’ll also give you a boost of fluid and electrolytes — give those muscles what they crave.
A little something for the sweet tooth – these blends keep it sweet, but healthy.
