21 Lowest Calorie Fruits For Weight Loss List

There are so many different ingredients you can put into a smoothie.

However, when you’re trying to lose weight, you want to regulate what you consume and keep tabs on your caloric intake for the day.

Calories can add up, but if you’re like me, you want to make smoothies that taste good.

Most of the time, a lot of their delicious flavor, particularly green smoothies, comes from the fruit you put in the mix.

I share a lot of recipes and provide the total amount of calories for each beverage along with other nutrition facts.

Naturally, the fruits add sweetness, but are you wondering how many calories they add in contribution to the total?

Well, today, I will share a list with 21 of the lowest calorie fruits I’ve researched. I’ll list them in ascending order for you.

Of course, you might not blend all these fruits in whatever various smoothies you make.

However, most fruits you get from the produce section at the supermarket don’t come with a “Nutrition Facts” label.

Therefore, knowing the fruits’ calorie count can help you make smart and fun choices when eating them, whether individually or in a blended creation.

This list of the lowest calorie fruits has been ordered from the lowest calorie fruit at the top of the list to the highest of the low-calorie fruits at the bottom of the list.  All fruits in this list contain low calories. 

I have also compared the calories per 150 grams of fruit.  This is approximately 1 to 1.5 cups of fruit, just to give you an idea if you don’t want to get your kitchen scales out.
