Are you fit to tackle the Green Beast Super Smoothie?
We love true superfood smoothies here at PowerBodyMind because they allow us to get a huge hit of nutrients from vegetables in a tasty and portable form. However, we have a problem with conventional smoothie wisdom! It seems that the need for sweetness and explosive flavour has lead to what is more of a green coloured fruit juice rather than a vegetable based green elixir of health and vitality (which is why we are drinking them right?) The overemphasis on fruit in our green smoothies can have some surprising disadvantages to those who are drinking these blends as a healthy choice, the first being that they are exremely high in sugar, yes its natural sugar, but its still sugar and its still not great for you.
On top of this the high sugar content means that when you drink these smoothies you will get a huge surge in blood sugar which we don't want at certain times of the day, this is why the Green Beast Super Smoothie was created. Surely you don't need to get a massive hit of fructose in order to consume a ton of extremely healthy plant based nutrition? But what about the taste? After a lot of experimenting and knocking back smoothies that only the most sadistic health freak could tolerate we have come up with something that is delicious, low in sugar, and jam packed with fantastic ingredients.
