30 Low Calorie Smoothies - Title Image | Hurry The Food Up

If you’re in a hurry for breakfast, stuck for lunch time inspiration, or just in need of a hassle free snack, look no further than these low calorie smoothie recipes!

If you’re not used to drinking smoothies, it may seem strange to replace a meal with a drink.

But once you’ve tried a few of the low calorie smoothies on this list, you’ll certainly be converted to the merits of drinking your breakfast!

Low calorie smoothies: what are the benefits?

It’s hard to overstate how much time whizzing up a healthy smoothie recipe instead of your usual breakfast or lunch recipes can save.

Most of the smoothies on this list take around 5 minutes to prepare, then pour into a glass and you’re good to go!

The second advantage to these easy, healthy smoothie recipes is their flexibility! Smoothies allow, and even encourage substitutions more than many other recipes.

Unlike some recipes, where lacking a certain ingredient can make a crucial difference to the quality of the final dish, or a substitution can change the flavour really significantly, this isn’t so much a problem with any of the low calorie smoothie recipes on this list.

All of the healthy smoothies on this list contain ingredients and instructions to achieve a certain flavour and consistency of smoothie, but if you aren’t able to follow the recipe exactly, no sweat!

Use substitutes or leave something out, and your low calorie smoothie will almost certainly still be a tasty, hassle free mealtime!

Finally, unlike certain juices which strain out the skin and pulp of the fruits and veggies that make them, smoothies keep all of that good stuff in!

Since the skin of fruits and vegetables is usually the most fibrous, vitamin and antioxidant rich part, you’ll feel the benefits of leaving it on when blending up your low calorie smoothies!

Healthy breakfast smoothies for weight loss: off to a good start

If you’re losing weight and looking for a satisfying and tasty way to start the day, consider a low calorie smoothie!

This avocado and spinach smoothie is a good place to start since it comes in at just 292 calories but contains a whopping 14g of protein, meaning that it’ll keep you feeling full until lunch.

While all of the low calorie smoothies for weight loss on this list work well for breakfast, there are certain classic flavour combinations that are more palatable when you’ve just woken up: this blueberry and banana low calorie smoothie has got those classic breakfast flavours without the hassle of having to actually cook the oatmeal or pancakes!

Alternatively, if you’re feeling sluggish, put a spring in your step with this zesty, zingy mango spinach smoothie with ginger!

In short, there are few breakfast foods that are as easy, filling and tasty than these low calorie smoothies for weight loss!

Low calorie vegan smoothies: plant based smoothie power

We’ve got plenty of low calorie smoothie ideas for anyone following a vegan diet. In fact, all of the smoothies on this list can be very easily vegan-ised!

Just swap out any dairy in smoothie recipes with yoghurt or milk for a plant based alternative!

However, our top picks for vegan low calorie smoothie recipes include this blueberry tahini smoothie and this energising beetroot option!

Don’t be put off by the kefir based smoothie recipes on this list; plast based kefirs are easily available, and the fermentation process of kefir means it has huge benefits for gut health, thanks to its probiotic qualities!
