Last time, I filled you in on Fructose: The worst sugar of them all.
The good news about all the recipes I share here is that they are all either naturally low in fructose, or they balance fructose out with alkaline ingredients so they won’t do the damage that fructose often causes.
Today’s recipe is one of those. Yes, it contains fruits with fructose – bananas and either strawberries, grapes, or mixed berries – but those are balanced with almond butter, chia seeds, spinach, and almond or coconut milk so it takes away from the acidity level and prevents over-taxing of your liver.
Plus, this smoothie tastes great! You’ll really enjoy it on winter mornings to come.
Give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
