For those of you joining me in the upcoming No Sugar Challenge, you might already know that you are supposed to drink one, nutrient-dense smoothie per day. As you move along in the challenge, you will find that natural foods begin to taste sweeter and sweeter. You find that there really isn’t a need to sweeten everything and you begin to enjoy foods without the “sugar-bomb” effect.
This has a wonderfully light and “airy” flavor. It’s not as filling as some of the other smoothies, but it should carry you through 2 hours until your next meal just fine. This might be a good smoothie to have as a last meal of the day. That way you get some great nutrients, but you won’t have a brick in your belly just before bed. This isn’t high in protein, so pair it with a hardboiled egg white or add some unflavored protein powder and enjoy.
