We're filing sweet potatoes under the "veggie" category, since the starches are technically root vegetables. Once cooked and mashed, the vitamin-rich tubers make one of the best vegetables for smoothies. Cinnamon, vanilla, and dates give this meal-in-a-glass flavors reminiscent of a dessert, while a couple of spoonfuls of coconut add a taste of the tropics.

The "pink power" in this pretty fruit and vegetable smoothie recipe comes in the form of strawberry Greek yogurt. Each 87-calorie serving has five grams of protein to fuel you until your next meal. Watermelon and strawberries do a masterful job at disguising any hint of cauliflower that might cause kids to cower.

This golden, honey-drizzled smoothie recipe is intended as a morning meal replacement. In addition to fruits, vegetables, and juices, we tossed in tofu (which is made from soy, so also a vegetable) to kick up the protein and give this smoothie a thicker texture. No one will ever guess there are yellow beets and sweet bell peppers hiding inside.

The deep jewel-tone color of these vegetable smoothies is a visual cue to their ample antioxidant levels. Beets, berries, pomegranate juice, and leafy greens combine for a recipe packed with vitamins A and C. Opt for frozen berries to make it icy and refreshing.

Unless you garnish with asparagus spears, as we did, you'll hardly know this green smoothie recipe is made with spinach and asparagus. Green grapes, kiwifruit, and a splash of grape juice keep the smoothie nicely sweet. This low-calorie snack is rich in vitamin A and offers three grams of fiber.
