What’s great about all these smoothie options is the ingredients are real! You can feel confident knowing what is in your smoothie. Freshly made with no additives or added sugars. Beware of buying bottled already made smoothies that include preservatives and are high in sugar. Smoothies can quickly turn into high calorie and sugary (not what you want) so it is important to be mindful of how much fruit you are adding and avoiding things like sweetened juices, sweetened yogurt or ice cream! When you make your own or visit Goodness Me! there they are sweetened naturally with things like bananas or dates. It’s smoothie time!
