Cannellini beans have such a mild flavor, they'll blend right into the fruits they're pureed with. Add 1/4 cup of beans, and it'll increase your smoothie's fiber content by 2.5 grams and 50 calories, and it will give your smoothie a protein boost too. Soak your own or buy a can of BPA-free Eden cannellini beans to avoid the hormone-disrupting chemical BPA often found in the lining of canned goods.
