A low sugar smoothie, a holistic vibe and a lot of time at the spa can cure whatever ails you. No time for fancy treatments? Take a tip from those expensive celebrity retreats if you want best-you’ve-ever-felt-and-slept results: cut the sugar. Leaving sugar on the editing room floor is our secret recipe for combating burnout, stress and fatigue. If you currently consume a lot of calories from added sugar, you may be able to lower your risk for heart disease just by cutting back.
The goal is not to cut back flavor, and if you try these low sugar smoothies, you’ll see that you don’t have to!. You simply want to cut out unhealthy sources of added sugar (breakfast cereals, cookies, candy, cake, soda and coffee sweeteners) and eat nutrient-dense, whole foods such as vegetables, fruits, and dairy.
These quick and easy BlendJet smoothies — Creamy Dreamy Strawberry Smoothie, Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie and Pumpkin Spice Latte Smoothie — are made with natural sugar from fruit, aka nature’s candy. Unlike artificial sugar, the sugar in fruit isn’t harmful to your health and it contains vitamins, phytochemicals and fiber that fills you up to keep you from overeating.
Cutting sugar in favor of low sugar smoothies can do wonders for your body. And, if you’re looking for more tangible transformation, you can try quitting caffeine and alcohol as well.
