Stephanie's No Sugar Added Smoothie

Submitted by: MORRISDATTER

Introduction

I love smoothies, but I don't eat sugar. I also find if I have a concentrated fruit juice, the effect on my blood sugar is just as bad as having eaten sugar! So, I created this smoothie for myself one summer afternoon when I really wanted something fresh. I love smoothies, but I don't eat sugar.

Ingredients

    1 cup of frozen blueberries (approx)
    1 ripe banana, medium
    4 oz. cold non-fat or 1% milk


Directions

Put the berries in a blender and add the banana in pieces.
Pour the milk over until it just covers the berries and banana in your blemder. (This amount varies, depending on how large the banana is and how many berries you used!)
Blend until smooth.
Enjoy

I find no desire to add any sugar to these smoothies, because the banana provides natural sweetness. Benefit as I see it for myself is no carbs from sugar-sugar but a great supply of potassium, instead.
