Green Smoothie Under 200 Calories

I have recently been eating this green smoothie or a variation of it each morning for my breakfast. My kids and I both love how it tastes and I love that it is so healthy – it’s under 200 calories!

The recipe I am sharing includes apple juice, but when calcium enriched orange juice is on sale I use that instead. I have also liked using Mango Peach Apple Juice.

Ingredients for green smoothie under 200 calories

Ingredients:

These are all the ingredients you will need to make this green smoothie. There are only 5 ingredients plus a blender so it’s pretty simple!

I get the frozen strawberries from Costco because it’s cheaper to buy them frozen than fresh. The other great thing about using frozen strawberries is you do not need to have ice.

I also get my spinach and Festival fruit blend from Costco. I buy whichever juice is on sale as I explained above and get a low-fat vanilla yogurt.

Adding Your Ingredients to the Blender:

For best results with your blender, you want to add your easiest to blend items first. So I add my ingredients in this exact order:

  1. Juice
  2. Yogurt
  3. Spinach
  4. Fruit blend
  5. Frozen strawberries

Blender Tips:

I let my ingredients blend on their own and then start using my plunger to push the ingredients down to the blades.

I like to use my Vitamix blender to make my smoothies, but the Blendtec Blender is also a great machine for making whole fruit smoothies.

This Green Smoothie is Great for Kids:

Look how this green smoothie starts to turn more of a purple or red as the strawberries blend in. My kids are more willing to drink a smoothie that is not green in color. Although it is green in vitamins. Check out the full recipe below.

Green Smoothie Freezer Tips

This recipe makes (3) 16 oz servings or (6) 8 oz servings if you can fit the full 3 cups of each fruit in your blender.

I like to eat 16 oz and then freeze 2 more bags of the smoothie to blend up again the next day! Freezing the smoothie packs saves me some time and makes it easier to calculate how many calories are in each one because I have already done it the day before.

Blending From Frozen:

When blending a 16 oz portion of this green smoothie, just add a half cup of water at the bottom of your blender before blending.

I like to run the bag under a little warm water and break the smoothie pack in half so it is easier to get into the blender. I then put my bags in the freezer and reuse them the next time I make a smoothie.

To make this TerraFit friendly, skip the juice and just use water! You’ll also want to make sure the yogurt has less than 20 grams carbs per serving.
