Your Smoothie Is a Sugar Bomb Here’s How to Make It Healthy

Video taken from the channel: Natural Health Care


It is possible to include fruit in your blend without going overboard on sugar. Choosing higher fiber fruits, like antioxidant-packed berries, helps mitigate any blood sugar spikes. Sweet and tangy frozen raspberries (one of the lowest sugar berries) have. If tropical fruit makes up most of your smoothie, sorry to break it to you, but you’re drinking a sugar bomb.

Fruits like bananas, mangoes, papaya, and pineapple are friggen’ delicious, but they’re full of sugar! I’m not saying to never put mango or banana in your smoothie. I’m not a mad woman!

Smoothies: Healthy Meal vs Sugar Bomb. August 22, 2018 Leave a Comment. While they’re loaded with vitamins and taste amazing, fruit also packs a lot of natural sugar which means your fruit-filled smoothie could actually have just as much sugar as juice or candy! Don’t worry you don’t have to cut fruit out altogether!

Smoothies can be the ultimate health food but, thanks to the plethora of delicious fruits and add-ins we use to make them, they also have the potential to be the ultimate sugar bomb. This all depends on what your goals are. As a general rule of thumb, Mitsios says that you should steer clear of smoothies that contain excessive sugar due to frozen yogurt, sugary yogurt, or high-glycemic-index fruit (like mangoes, dates, and bananas).

Your winning healthy smoothie formula = 1 cup greens + 1 healthy fat source + 1 protein source + 1 fruit This combo will ensure that your smoothie is delicious and filling, without just being a. You can usually ask for your smoothie without added sugar or Turbinado, but it really shouldn’t be there in the first place if the company boasts serving healthy smoothies. The yogurt used by many smoothie chains is also often a secret sugar-bomb, and it is worth asking if there’s a plain or lower-sugar option. Watch out for the added dairy.

Smoothies might not be as healthy as you think they are. Steffi Loos / Stringer Smoothies have all the sugar and calories without all the fiber of whole fruits. Fiber helps with satiety, which is important for weight management as well as the prevention of some chronic diseases. MORE: Your Smoothie Is a Sugar Bomb.

  • I would like to win because I am trying to increase my energy levels-I have a 1 year old and a three year old so boy do I need to be energetic! One suggestion I have for this video is to introduce and define adaptogenic and Ashwagandha and Maca earlier in the video-it is difficult to process the information without having more context if you have never heard this words. My brain was basically waiting for a sentence like “Maca is…blah blah blah blah and has been used by this group of people for 100s of years.” Just some more context for all of us new to these ingredients. God bless!

  • great video. loads of helpful info. i really like the ingredients.
    looking forward to making this one. love this channel. thanks ladies.

  • Since fructose causes obesity and lower energy production, that explains why Kenyan marathoners are so fat and slow. Now it makes sense.

  • Thank you for this. I have question or maybe make a video if u can. Smoothies r a staple for me but most milks like cow milk,almond milk,soy and coconut milk give me gas. I tried them all. Do u have any idea why. Thank you

  • Kayla, Thank you so much for picking me. Looking forward to balancing my hormones and increasing my energy. Hoping that 2019 will be a move in the right direction for my overall health. Ruth

  • Just turned 50 and I’m trying to get healthier. I’ve not tried any of these except for cocoa of course 😉 I’d be interested in seeing how they could help with peri-menopause symptoms like being cranky and tired all the time. I’ve not really experienced heavy night sweats, thank goodness.

  • Fructose is almost entirely metabolized by the liver…context always matters…if you are already getting too much energy (fat and carbs), excess fructose would make matters worse for sure. Also, juices are easy to over-consume and anything slowing digestion like fiber has been removed. Heard Gundry say that we need very little protein…he may have been a great cardiologist but he needs to stop with nutrition.

    Would love to see you take down “nuclei overload training”.

  • Coconut only has saturated fat so actually it is not good or maybe? To much saturated fat, that clogs the vains. Dr. Vand I see you often use coconut, is this still healthy? Thank you for your answer. Greetings Sarah:-)

  • Thought you were gonna make a fruit-free smoothie, because you said no sugar. Basically you can make with any fruits. I never add sugar. Fruits have enough sugar. I like Pitaya! Dragonfruit!! ��

  • I’ve had an estrogen dominant cancer twice so I would love to get my hormones balanced for cancer prevention. Going through radiation has resulted in me experiencing menopause earlier. Thank you so much for the smoothie recipes and give away!

  • Hi Mona. PLEEEEASE tell me which vegan milk is the healthiest. I have acne-prone skin not sure if that’s helpful to know, but I don’t know if I should be drinking soy milk. Lately, I’ve been seeing smoothie videos and people put almond or oat milk. Is it healthier and safer to drink compared to soy milk? Does Soy milk cause breast cancer too? What should I be drinking?
    I would love to hear what you know. Really hoping to get some feedback on this. Thank you! <3

  • I would love to win I tried ashwagandha in a smoothie a friend and she said it was a good hormonal herb. What I want to know if you already had your thyroid removed and you take thyroid medication could it affect medication?

  • Layne, if they checked his pants then they would find a huge banana in his back pocket making him uncomfortable all the time at this crap interview.

  • My dad was just told he needs to go on a no sugar, low carb, low protein diet. It’s been a shock to him so I may introduce this to him since it’s sugar free. He can’t have nuts or seeds so we’ll have to sub that out! But the açaí is so good
