10 Smoothie Ideas under 150 calories

It’s 3 pm… I don’t know about you, but I’ve been working hard all day and it’s time for a snack!Are you someone who:

  1. Reaches for that salty bag of chips?
  2. Starts searching all your hubby’s favorite hiding spots, trying to find the chocolate you asked him to hide- so you wouldn’t eat it?
  3. Someone who is able to able to dole themselves out just 15 almonds and not eat the rest of the bag?

(I’m usually number 2. Lucky for me though, my hubby is an excellent hider….)

I’m always trying to eat better/watch what I eat. ( And not always with success…)By 3:00 pm, my willpower’s at its lowest point of the day and it’s so tough to resist those not so good for you snacks.

One of my favorite snacks to help keep me on track and resist temptation is a low calorie smoothie. Fruit smoothies are an excellent way to satisfy a sweet tooth without too many extra calories and they are so good for you too!

Low Calorie Smoothies:

Today, I have 10 delicious smoothie recipes to share. The best part is, each smoothie recipe is 150 calories or less!

Are Smoothies Good for Weight Loss?

There are definite health benefits to smoothies. Fiber, antioxidants, calcium, etc… The list goes on.

While drinking a healthy smoothie won’t induce weight loss in itself; replacing a sugary or processed snack with a low calorie smoothie will definitely fill you up, satisfy your sweet tooth and help keep you on the right track.

My Secret Low Calorie Smoothie Ingredient:

One of the ways I keep the calorie count down on my afternoon smoothie is by using an Unsweetened Almond or Coconut Milk. Silk has an Almond Coconut Blend (yum) that is only 35 calories and an unsweetened Cashew milk version that is only 25 calories.

Depending on the flavor you choose and as long as you stick with the unsweetened variety, the calories range from only 25 to 60 for a full cup!

Healthy Low Calorie Smoothie Ingredients

Smoothies are a great way to get in a quick, healthy snack or meal. Keep in mind though, not all smoothies are low calorie. Many smoothie recipes call for added sugar, dairy, and other high-calorie ingredients, like almond or peanut butter, avocado, seeds, etc…

If you’re looking to keep your smoothie in the lower calorie range, stick with:

  • water, or nut milk for your base
  • just about any fruit
  • veggies like kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, carrots, celery, or cucumbers.

How to make a low calorie smoothie?

(Choose your ingredients from the list of 10 smoothie recipes below.)

  • Fruit. I prefer frozen as it will thicken the smoothie without needing to add much ice.
  • Liquid of choice. I prefer unsweetened almond or coconut milk or coconut water over plain water.
  • Optional extras. Ice if using fresh fruit, a handful of spinach or whatever the recipe calls for.

2. Load your smoothie ingredients into the blender container in the proper order. Liquids first, then soft fruits or vegetables, greens, and ice on top.

3. Blend, blend, blend…And enjoy!

Tips For Making the Best Low Calorie Smoothies:

  1. Use fresh or frozen fruit (or a combo of both) If you use fresh, you will need to add about 1/2 cup of ice.) Ripe bananas work best.
  2. Load smoothie ingredients into the container in the proper order—liquids first, then soft fruits or vegetables, greens, and ice on top.
  3. Depending on the sweetness of the fruit, you might need a bit of sweetener. You can use honey, maple syrup, Stevia, sugar substitute, apple juice, or even a small amount of real sugar.
  4. All blenders are different and will process the ingredient at a different rate. So if your Smoothie is too thin: add a bit more fruit/banana/ice. If it is too thick: add a bit more water, Almond/Coconut Milk, or low-sugar juice.
  5. Optional add-ins to bump up the nutritional content: 1/2 avocado, (will add creaminess w/out changing the flavor) Handful of baby spinach, chia seeds or flaxseed, protein powder, nut butters, greek yogurt, or even cooked oatmeal. (Keep in mind these add-ins also bump the calorie count!)

Blender Recommendations for the Best Smoothies:

  1. My Blender: Vitamix 5200 2 HP motor (That is the Amazon link, though I bought mine when it was the QVC deal of the day on 6 easy pays.)
  2. Ninja 1100 watts- have not tried this blender, but that’s a lot of watts for the $$)
  3. Nutri Ninja(1000 watts)
  4. Hamilton Beach (700 watts)
  5. Plus don’t forget the Cute Straws!

Frequently Asked Smoothie Questions

What Liquid Is Best For Smoothies?

The liquid is a very important ingredient in your smoothie. It’s what helps the blender break down the fruit to make them creamy and delicious. Technically, just about any liquid will work, you just have to think about what your goals are for this smoothie.

Water will not add any additional calories, but might not create a satisfying smoothie. Yogurt and higher fat dairy milks will add fat, flavor and make for a deliciously decadent smoothie, but will increase your calorie count. I find unsweetened nut milks or pure coconut water is a happy medium.

Can These Recipes Be Doubled?

Definitely! You can double, triple, quadruple – just depending on how large your blender container is. Then, just store your leftovers in the fridge.

How Long Will Smoothies Last In The Fridge?

When making smoothies for myself, I tend to double or triple the recipe, then store the leftovers in the blender container in the fridge. Smoothies will last about 3 days in the fridge. When ready to have the next serving of your smoothie, just give it a quick blend on the blender.

Can You Freeze These Low Calorie Smoothies?

10 Smoothie Recipes under 150 calories (14)

Oh yes! Next time you are prepping snacks, try making smoothie popsicles. They are awesome! Blend up your low calorie smoothie as directed and add the mixture to a popsicle mold. Easy Peasy!

Can I Replace A Meal With A Smoothie?

While you technically can replace a meal with a smoothie, I do not recommend using a low calorie smoothie as a meal replacement. These smoothies are designed as “snacks” to tide you over until your next meal or to satisfy a sweet craving. If you want to use a smoothie as a meal replacement, I recommend adding protein powder and fat for a well-balanced meal.
