We’ve discussed smoothies before on Prevention Pulse as they can range from extremely healthy snacks (or even meals) to fruity sugar milkshake desserts.
The issue is that many food establishments that offer smoothies will market the high sugar variety as a health food.
When you combine fruit with ingredients like chocolate, frozen yogurt, and artificial flavored syrups, you start getting diminished benefits from the other healthy ingredients that might be in a smoothie.
Make the healthier choice: Try and limit your smoothie consumption to smoothies that contain only: plain yogurt, ice, milk, unsweetened frozen fruit, and protein powder/vitamin blends.
