Like others, I make them for both meals and snacks. I've had them be up to 500 calories, for which they then HAVE to be a meal for me.

I have to say.... these smoothies are a tremendously helpful way to get vegetables in. I don't like salads, and smoothies are the way to go for me. As healthful as Kale is, I much prefer spinach. I prefer kale cooked.

If it's more than 400 calories, I use it to as a meal (normally breakfast).

If it's less than 300 calories, it's a snack between meals.

I make them for breakfast, and then usually only need a little something else (like a hard boiled egg, small yogurt, some cereal, etc) a little later on to hold me over til lunchtime :)

I've never made one. The esthetics of a "green" smoothie are so unappealing to me! Even if they taste good, I just couldn't....

I have them whenever I feel like having the, regardless of what time of day it is.

just curious: since smoothies are so popular -- do you make them for breakfast? Or do you have them in the afternoon to keep your energy high and your appetite low till supper?
