Overall, except for the last section, these are very healthy, low calorie drinks. The highest calorie drink is "Dad's Cereal Shake" (containing granola, bran cereal, bananas and chocolate syrup) with a whopping 400, but most are far less. A handful of ingredients may be hard to track down if you don't live near a Whole Foods or independent health food store, such as Medjool dates, lychee nuts and frozen acai berries, but most recipes have readily available ingredients (frozen fruit may be substituted for fresh depending on the season). One smoothie contains eggnog which might be hard to find outside December. However, these are minor drawbacks. The smoothies I've tried, including Avocado Bliss, Pretty in Pink Slumber Party Smoothie, Strawberry Lemonade Slushie, Creamy Avocado Indulgence, and Pina Colada Shake, are all excellent and worth making again.
