Low Fat Smoothie

Nothing sounds better on a hot day than a rich, creamy, fruit-filled smoothie. If your mouth waters at the thought of smoothies, but the fitness freak inside you says “too many calories!” don’t despair. Smoothies, when done right can have the texture of a yummy milkshake, but calories of a dinner salad. When done poorly, smoothies can add to your waistline – much faster than you think.

Low Fat Milk/ Yoghurt

The secret behind a low fat but rich-looking smoothie lies in the use of low-fat or non-fat yogurt. This gives your low calorie smoothie a smooth ice cream like consistency without any fat or sugar. You may also use skim milk to give it a richer and more drinkable texture.

Shaved Ice and Sweeteners

Adding shaved ice to the drink will give you a smooth consistency, minus the calories. This gives you a more drinkable texture. You may also consider adding sugar substitutes such as stevia to further lower the calorie intake.

Substitute Yoghurt with Juices

Adding juices instead of yoghurt or milk can also add to the texture of your smoothie. However, it is recommended that you pass over the pasteurized type, and stick to the juices made from fresh fruits. If you love smoothies and intend to make these diet drinks daily, then investing in a good juicer is the way to go.

Frozen Fruits

Another secret behind a low fat yet creamy smoothie is adding frozen bananas to the drink. This will help you add more creaminess and reduce the unpleasant texture. It’s easy to put in the wrong ingredients and end up with an undrinkable puree instead of a smoothie. Adding frozen bananas almost assures a velvety and rich concoction.

If you are new to smoothie making then there are thousands of delicious and interesting low fat smoothies’ recipes available and before long you will find yourself experimenting with the ingredients.

It becomes easy once you have worked out the ‘secret’ formula to make delicious low fat smoothies. Low fat yogurt, shaved ice, and frozen banana are just a few options to help you create a base recipe to which you may add different fruits and vegetables of your choice.

Another healthy secret to make low calorie smoothies is adding vegetables instead of fruits. Some common combinations of vegetables that you may add to prepare healthy diet drinks are carrots, celery, and tomatoes. You may also consider adding tabasco sauce and peppers for a tasty and spicy treat.

Adding blubbery and other berries may also lend great flavors to the smoothies. Besides adding a nutritional value to the drink, vegetables also help in lowering the calorie count and increasing the richness.

Cold, smooth, and refreshingly delicious, are the three main attractions making low calorie smoothies a diet craze. As long as fresh fruits and vegetables are available, you can experiment with these ingredients and discover exciting new secrets for creamy and yummy low fat smoothies.
