Looking Beyond Calories




Get Your Daily Sugar Intake in One Drink!

Can’t you just feel the coolness of the fruit smoothie quenching the heat of the day?

You know what they say about looks being deceiving.  Now that I’ve made a commitment to cut down on my daily sugar intake, I decided to see exactly how many calories and sugar grams were in these drinks.

I did a little checking to see exactly how nutritional these were.  Surprisingly, these Fruit Smoothies boast only 287 calories.  The killer is the total number of  carbs at 45.9 of which  42 grams is sugar.  This is just 8 grams short of daily sugar intake based on a 2,000 calorie diet.  Not good.

Ummm.  No thanks.
