It’s very easy to turn your smoothie into a powerhouse of plant based nutrition. Combine the synergy of greens, protein and fat – and you create the right kind of energy that is easily absorbed and that will sustain you throughout the day.

Did you know that the average smoothie has more fructose than the amount recommended over 3 days?  Even if there is no sugar added, traditional smoothies are loaded with the fructose and carbohydrates from fruit. And although carbs are not bad, when eaten alone they can quickly impact blood sugar, raise insulin, stimulate fat storage, and drop your blood sugar…making you hungry and tired. But don’t despair - it’s very easy to turn your smoothie into a powerhouse of plant based nutrition. Combine the synergy of greens, protein and fat – and you create the right kind of energy that is easily absorbed and that will sustain you throughout the day – and it goes without saying they are delicious!  Join Cindy, our resident Smoothie Expert, as she shows you how!
