CUT BACK THE SUGAR WITH FRUIT FREE SMOOTHIES

CUT BACK THE SUGAR WITH FRUIT FREE SMOOTHIES

If you’re trying to cut the sugar from your diet, you might have to forgo the added fruits in your smoothies. Fruit smoothies can be full of sugar, even homemade ones, and we all know this is a big no no for our waistlines and health.   

Thankfully, there is a healthier way to enjoy smoothies.

Fruit-free, green or savoury smoothies – call them what you will - are loaded with fibre and nutrients that are often lacking in fruit smoothies. Not only will you avoid that blood-sugar spike but they are also more alkaline, which will help to optimize your energy levels.

There are countless green smoothie combinations you can do, so get creative.

Try avocados, spinach, kale, cucumber, herbs, bell peppers, tomatoes, celery, courgettes, seeds, nuts and nut butters, almond milk or coconut milk. 

While you shouldn’t expect much sweetness from our recipe, the avocado and almond butter add a creaminess you will love. Before you know it you will be waking up craving one every morning!

INGREDIENTS

½ cucumber

4 ice cubes

1 tbsp almond butter

½ tsp cinnamon

½ avocado

2 cups spinach

1 cup almond milk

METHOD

  1. Place all the ingredients in the blender. Blend on high until creamy and smooth. Add more liquid to reach the desired thickness.
  2. Consume immediately and enjoy.
