I am not a huge fan of veggies and don't get enough fruit in my diet so I am looking for a chalked full of fruit/veggie smoothie. Only stipulation is it must be 250 calories or less!

Thinking spinach, blueberries and......

    I don't drink them often, but my typical recipe is 140 grams of frozen mixed fruit, and a total of about 200 grams of some combination of raw cucumber, celery, shredded carrot, kale, and/or spinach (all of these are pretty easy to hide in a smoothie). Crank than in my Ninja with some water and maybe a bit of stevia.

    If you find the kale, celery, or shredded carrot to be a bit too strong for your taste, try microwaving them for about a minute before adding to the frozen fruit.

    I usually eat smoothies at least once a day. However, I eat them as a meal and they're high protein with a little bit of healthy fat, so they're usually a minimum of 350 calories.

    Get a whey isolate protein powder. There's a brand called PB2 I think, that is Peanut Butter powder, and they also have a PB with chocolate powder. I do a scoop of chocolate powder, 2 TBSP of the PB2, medium banana, cup of milk, and some ice and blend it up in my Ninja.
