Smoothie is the best and, most of the times, the healthiest option for a snack. Also, it is the simplest option. There is nothing easier than put everything together into a blender and mix up a nutritious and tasty concoction. Though, the registered dietitians agree, you should use only real, whole food ingredients, and forget about foods high in added sugars and stuff of that kind. Here are 6 ingredients you should never ever put in your healthy smoothie, according to nutrition experts:
- Frozen yogurt.
- Sweeteners. Even honey is forbidden.
- Yogurts with flavor.
- Protein powder.
- Dried fruit.
And in general, to have a healthy smoothie, just pack more seasonal fruits in it.
