When I make a smoothie, I always start with frozen fruit. That way I don't need to add any ice to thicken it up!
It's easy to keep healthy smoothie ingredients on hand since frozen fruit doesn't go bad even half as fast as fresh so you can always have a healthy meal or snack ready to go in a few minutes. Throwing overripe fruit (especially bananas!) into the freezer is also a great way to cut down on waste.

Kefir - a milk product you can find in health food sections is so thick and delicious, you would think it full of fat and calories. I add 1/2 cup to my morning cereal and feel like I'm eating like a queen for only 55 calories. It is filled with probiotics, has a pleasing bite to the taste.
Dislike fruits/veggies? make smoothies & stir fry's!
Turn your veggies into smoothies, and have a smoothie with nearly every meal (add different fruits each time). For extra yum, add splenda to your smoothies & soy milk they'll taste like milk shakes! Also, you can add a handful of spinich to most fruit smoothies without being able to taste it!
Also, make stir fry's with your veggies.
