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.
