Hello! I make a lot of green smoothies for the nutrients and cleanse they provide. However, I’m wondering if the ingredients I use are a healthy balance. Specifically, I normally put in 2 or 3 pieces of fruit, along with spinach, celery, ginger, flaxseed, and non-fat yogurt. My question is: I know fruit contains a lot of natural sugars, how much is too much fruit? Thanks so much!
I would always try to juice or make a smoothie using a ration of 2/3 to 1 pieces of vegetables to fruit. Additionally some fruits are lower in sugars than others, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, blackberries are watermelon are all low sugar fruits. Using these in your smoothies can help reduce the sugar consumed.
