Yummy - with revisions

I edited this recipe to cut down on some of the sugar and boost its nutritional index. Instead of 1/2 cup of fruit juice I instead use about 1/3 cup of almond milk, a splash of 100% cranberry juice (adds some tartness that I like), and the juice of one fresh juice orange. I also add in 1 cup of fresh spinach to the mix as well as a dollop of yogurt.

Delicious, easy to make

There are in fact good carbs

There are in fact good carbs that your body needs. I hope you are eating complex carbs on your diet. If you are not you will find that you are forgetting things easily and frequently & you don't have much energy to exercise. Good carbs feed your brain. No matter what you've heard about net carbs and impact carbs, weight loss boils down one thing: Calories in versus calories out. Following a low-carbohydrate diet generally puts you into a state called "ketosis," which means your body has no carbohydrates to burn for energy, so it burns stored fat or whatever else is available. Ketosis tends to reduce hunger, so often you end up eating a very low-calorie diet. Of course, it's calories that count when you are trying to lose weight. And every fad diet, one way or another, manages to cut calories.
Ask a nutritionist. Stay healthy and eat Well Balanced meal. Please. So you stay healthy and energetic!!

awesome breakfast smoothie

i usually make this with skim milk instead of apple juice and a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder instead of tofu. according to the packages, my "no added sugar" apple juice has 14 g sugar in a 1/2 cup and my mixed berries have 10 g. not sure what the sugar content is in a banana or tofu, but remember none of it is "added" sugar. it is ok to eat a little bit of sugar, it naturally occurs in lots of healthy food.

The great thing about smoothie recipes that you can alter them to your needs and taste. Too much sugar in these bad boys? I would cut out the apple juice and add some low fat vanilla yogurt for texture and taste. Looking to lose weight or sneak in veggies? Invest in a juicer!!!!!!!! I swear it is so important. I hate carrots but I juice one big one and put it in with my smoothie and add some vanilla flavored whey protein. I swear it is delicious. Experiment with frozen fruit. Trust me, no need for sugary juices the fruit will make it nice and sweet and yummy.

Be sure your vanilla yogurt

Be sure your vanilla yogurt doesn't have sugar in it! Plain + vanilla extract, stevia if you need it, would work better.

This smoothie was good. Swapped out apple juice with 1 cup peanut butter and berries for dark chocolate. I lost weight instantly!
