Looking around for coffee substitutes
I love smoothies any time of the day 🙂
Can you taste the bananas at all in this? It sounds so good but I have a strong aversion to the smell and taste of bananas :/ or could I substitute them for something?
Yes, you can probably taste the banana especially if you’re sensitive to it. Because banana is a little more neutral than other fruit, it was my first choice, but you could use ice or soy yogurt as a replacement. Adding other fruit, such as strawberries will change the flavor more, but it might be delicious. I’m always open to trying different combos!
Hello. I love all the pumpkin recipes. The pumpkin smoothie has 36.7 g of sugar. Would you conduit high for a smoothie? And what ingredients gives it high in sugar? Love your website.👍🏼
Hi Rene and thanks for your question and your comment about the website. It always warms my heart to hear potitive feedback! I always take a look at the nutrition info when someone has a question about it. In this case, everything looked good. I removed the bananas and it took the sugars down to 13.6g so it looks like those are what’s bringing the sugar up. If you like, you can try it with 1 banana (the recipe is meant for two servings, btw) or substitute another fruit. I looked at the nutrition with one medium bartlett pear and the sugar was 22.2. Even strawberries and blueberries were in the 20s.
I do have other smoothies with more veggies and those, most likely, won’t be as high in sugar. You could always add a few more greens or a carrot, for example to this recipe. Are you concerned about the sugar for health reasons? From what I know, fruit sugars are not supposed to affect blood sugar as much, but, of course, every person is different. I hope that helps.
