Here are 10 extremely low calorie green smoothies under 100 calories to help you increase your energy, improve your digestion, help you lose weight and give you glowing skin. What’s not to love?
If you’re aware of my ethos – you know that I’m all about being as healthy as I can by spending as little time in the kitchen as possible.
That’s why I make Green Thickies which are complete meal smoothies. These allow me to make meals by only spending 2 minutes a day in the kitchen.
The great thing about Green Thickies are that they fill you up from one meal to the next – so you don’t end up needing any snacks.

So usually I’m not a fan of low calorie shakes for one reason…
It is often too much effort to make green smoothie ‘snacks’ that are low in calories because you’ll still need to make proper meals alongside them.
This means more time in the kitchen.
But I do understand that not everybody wants to drink a smoothie as a meal. Some people do actually have more time to prepare a sit down meal, and sit down and enjoy it.
And for those people – I still encourage them to have at least one green drink a day.
So if that’s you – and you prefer sit down meals, then you will love these low calorie green smoothies that you can use as snacks in between meals, or with your meals.
These green smoothies will increase your energy, improve your digestion and give you glowing skin. What’s not to love?
How Many Calories In A Green Smoothie?
Green Smoothies can be as low or high in calories as you like. The number of calories depends on the ingredients you put in it and how filling you want it to be. If you make a smoothie that contains less than 100 calories, it be more like a snack and won’t fill you up for long. However, if you make a smoothie that is between 300-500 calories, it can replace a meal and keep you going until your next meal.
At the other extreme, you can also create very high calorie green smoothies if you are trying to gain weight.

3 Must-Have Low Calorie Smoothie Products
1. A Blender That Will Last A Lifetime
I recommend this blender to make your smoothies in. This is the best quality blender at the lowest price you’ll ever see.
If you want more blender recommendations, here are my top 10 blenders for smoothies.
2. A Smoothie Cup For Healthy Snacks On The Go
The best thing about smoothies is they are portable which saves you time.
So you’ll be needing a container to transport them from A to B.
This is my favorite smoothie container as it doesn’t leak and there are no hidden areas which makes it easy to clean in the dishwasher. Plus it’s pretty cheap, and good quality.
And if you want ALL of my smoothie bottle recommendations, you’ll want to read this post.
3. Digital Scales
As you are trying to keep your calories really low, you’ll be needing to get exact with your measurements. The best way to do that is to weigh everything. Sometimes ingredients can get stuck in measuring cups making the measurements a lot lower. Or when you just guess, you’ll always end up doubling your calorie count without a doubt.
I especially like to weigh my frozen spinach as that never fits neatly into a measuring cup anyway.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
