“Sugar Free” Strawberry Mango Soy Smoothie Recipe + Join Us For a Splenda Twitter Party

Strawberry Mango Soy Smoothie

I have a mind blowing fact for you today. Did you know that experts recommend women consumer no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day? Unfortunately, the average American eats 22 teaspoons a day. But we have 5 easy tips to reduce your sugar intake, too.

  1. Recognize Sugar “Aliases”
    Fructose, Sucrose, Syrup, and Corn Sweetener are just a few. 
  2. Get it out of the kitchen. The easiest way to avoid sweets? Don’t even keep them in the house! 
  3. If you’re craving a sweets like candy – try eating a fruit instead. They will cure your sweet tooth and offer nutritional value too.
  4. Make sure you stick to an eating schedule that works for you. When we’re hungry or our sugar drops, we’re more likely to grab a sugary snack.
  5. Reduce your sauce intake.
    Instead of using dressings and sauces to flavor your food try using wholesome veggies, cheese or fruit to add flavor to plain food.

    that recipe sounds yummy and refreshing. My husband likes Splenda, personally I use sugar – it’s my weakness.

    That sounds wonderful. Appreciate the use of soy as we are in allergy season and milk does not help at all.
