Smoothies make for an easy way to start the day but if you throw in a few cups of tropical fruit and some juice….and that super healthy smoothie can actually start to have a lot in common with a can of soda when it comes to sugar content!

I love this veggie forward smoothie for the fiber, water content, minerals, and healthy fats it contains. I’m not a purist— you can certainly throw in some berries or other low glycemic fruit and make it your own creation. But you can feel good knowing that this will feed those commensal microbiome bacteria, provide you with antioxidants, and support stable blood sugar as you get your day going!
