There’s never a bad time for a smoothie. Whether as an on-the-go breakfast as you run to work in the morning, an energizing afternoon pick-me-up, or a refreshing beverage to cool down from a hot summer day, all are great reasons to whip up a smoothie.

But not all smoothies are created equal which is why we’ve created this list of delicious smoothie recipes made with only real ingredients, no added sugar and all under 250 calories.

Looking for an extra protein boost? We love to add BiPro protein powder whenever we need a little something extra. BiPro Whey Protein is a whey isolate which is better than a concentrate. It goes through an advanced process that filters out fat, lactose, sugar and carbohydrates. In addition, it’s clean, easy to digest and comes in a variety of flavors.

Its great that these are all low calorie but what's the total carb count? It would be nice to include that for those of us that are diabetic so that we can elect to leave out or replace certain ingredients. (and please don't mention the BS term of Net Carbs, there is no such thing)
