Summer Diet Mistake - Smoothies

Many people pick smoothies to cool off and refresh in the summer.    Sounds healthy – right?    Places add in fresh fruit, yogurt and protein powder.   All sounds healthy and “diet friendly”.     NOT EXACTLY -----    It is full of fruit and fruit juices that are loaded with sugar.       I am not suggesting you ban them.  Smoothies can be “healthy” if you make them yourself and use less sugar-based juices and replace the sugar with sugar substitutes if it needs extra sweetening.  Just be extra cautious with the ingredients you are putting in your smoothie and conscious of the sugar and calories involved.  

Stay tuned…………..
