7 Low Calorie Smoothies to Try ...

So you want to lose some weight and have decided to try low calorie smoothies to enhance your new diet.

Good for you!

There are so many tasty options and creative, low calorie ways to get in plenty of nutrition, while still being able to drink something that tastes like dessert.

I adore smoothies, but it can be easy to add too many calorie dense foods like nut butters, oats, chocolate chips, too much fruit, sugary mixes, poor quality protein powders or full fat and high sugar yogurt.

Sure, all that tastes great, but if you drink one to two of those a day or even one a day, and you might actually put on some weight, not lose it.

Smoothies should be light and filling at the same time, which is totally possible with these low calorie smoothies.

Try one each day and even swap out ingredients between them if you want some variety and creativity.
