Source: Celebrity Slim-Down Secret: Harley Pasternak's Sweet Spinach Smoothie

You've worked hard for your bikini body, so there's no reason to spend the cooler seasons undoing all those hours of sweat. This spinach smoothie from trainer Harley Pasternak is a favorite of his celebrity clients (Julianne Hough is a fan!) for helping them stay on the right track, especially after an indulgent period.

Spinach is the star in this creamy smoothie, and for good reason - with just one 16-ounce serving, you'll be getting your entire Recommended Dietary Allowance of vitamin A (great for healthy skin, hair, and eyes) and bone-building vitamin K, as well as an impressive amount of essential nutrients like manganese, potassium, and vitamin C. This 300-calorie smoothie is a good source of protein, making this veggie-packed smoothie a smart breakfast choice, especially if you're trying to lose weight.
