What you need to realize about smoothies is not all smoothies are created the same.
Some smoothies contain unrefined sugar
And I had to learn this the hard way. When I was having my smoothies and I was putting on weight, I’m like What The F?! I’m eating fruits, I’m having smoothies but I was putting on weight. A lot of fruits have a high sugar content, they are high glycemic. With fruits and foods that are high in sugar, it’s still sugar It’s unrefined sugar, but it’s still sugar and your body needs to break it down.
And for a lot of people it would make them put on weight. So now with a weight loss smoothie, what you want to do is incorporate fruits or vegetables that are high in fiber. You can use high sugar fruits but not too much of it. So you can use them to sweeten or to add that flavour.
