Starter Smoothie


Smoothies are an easy way to get more fruits and vegetables into your day, but calories can add up fast. For a smoothie that's only about 200 calories, follow our formula and use 1 cup fresh fruit or vegetables and/or cooked, frozen vegetables + 1 cup fruit juice. Blueberries and grape juice are featured here.
