When preparing a  low-sugar smoothie, you need to get your sources from “naturally occurring sugars from antioxidant-rich fruits, like berries or raw cacao, which has minerals, fiber, flavonols, and polyphenols,” says Kelly LeVeque holistic nutritionist, wellness expert, and celebrity health coach. 

“I limit fruit to ¼ cup or 1 serving.” Focus on protein, fiber, and fat instead.

By limiting your shakes to one carb source, that also has a fair amount of fiber, you’ll keep blood sugar levels balanced.

This green green smoothie recipe below—from LeVeque’s new book Body Love: Live in Balance, Weigh What You Want, and Free Yourself from Food Drama Forever—is a prime example of how to add the right amount of fruit.
