  • Avoid adding sugar to your smoothie in any form, whether it comes from canned fruit or flavored yogurt. Sugar will do little to satiate hunger, and you’re likely to crash later in the day.
  • Fresh or frozen fruits should naturally sweeten your smoothie, but if you need an extra dose, try adding beets or dates.
  • Avoid a second serving. If you are using a smoothie as a meal replacement just take one serving. Another would just build up the sugar and calories.

  • Herbs, spices, and extracts can make a world of difference. Freshly grated ginger adds a warming touch of flavor to your smoothie.
