Can we say glowing skin, leaner physique, and more energy? Yes please!! 😃 I’m always coming up with different smoothie recipes because there’s so much to love about a smoothie. It’s fast, easy, delicious and can be nutritious if made with the right ingredients. But wait, you can take it a step further and make it a super smoothie that has added benefits too! First off, I believe no smoothie needs sugar, at all...unless you’re climbing Mount Everest every day (and not even!), no one needs cane sugar in their diet, period. You’ve got tons of natural sugars from fruit, and if you need a tad more sweetness, a touch of zero-calorie, natural stevia or low-glycemic coconut nectar will do just fine. Stevia actually works really well in smoothies and teas because it has zero bitterness like it does in coffee. So let’s cut to the chase: what makes this smoothie so special? It’s a blend of good fats, fiber, antioxidants and other key ingredients that aid in weight- loss and detoxing the body.
