CookingLight.com: 10 Foods That Sound Healthy (but Aren't)

Smoothies

Even in most smoothie chains and coffee bars, smoothies start out pretty healthful. Most have a base of blended fruit and low-fat dairy. But disproportionately large serving sizes (the smallest is often 16 oz.) combined with added sugar, ice cream, or sherbet, can add up to a high-calorie treat. Some chains serve smoothies that contain up to 500 calories.

A smoothie can be a great way to start the day or to refuel after a workout. Just remember to account for the calories you drink when considering what you've consumed in a day. For the most economical and healthy smoothies, consider making your own. This delicious Blackberry-Peach Smoothie with Walnuts is packed with healthy ingredients and contains just 240 calories per serving.
