Notes

  • If you're new to low sugar smoothies you can always add half a banana or apple to help bridge the gap until your taste buds adjust to the lower sugar quantity.
  • I've added veggies to increase the nutrients and volume of each smoothie. These are optional and I recommend you adjust to the low sugar smoothie first, then get creative with vegetables.
  • You may taste the cauliflower more than the zucchini, so if you can't decide which veggie to add, start with the zucchini first. 
  • Have fun with the flavors, low sugar fruits, sneaky vegetables and protein options. If you make a smoothie variation that you love, share it in the comments below! 
  • These are the glass straws I use and love.
