Great question. I don't consider a smoothie a meal substitute. It's more like an in between snack, a pre-meal, or a post workout recovery drink. I try to limit my smoothies to no more than 300 calories with the whey powder, banana, strawberries, and green tea combined.

It's true about not "drinking your calories" but I think that caveat is really for warning people about the pitfalls of exclusively juicing your way to weight loss.

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
