For the sweet tooth among us, a smoothie is on the menu today. A low-carb smoothie that is.
You may wonder why a smoothie should be low in carbohydrates. "A smoothie bowl is healthy anyway, isn't it?"
That is not always the case. In particular, the smoothies that are sold in the supermarket are packed with sugar. In addition, they are often made with orange juice, which is also not recommended if you want to lose weight or have diabetes.
Why are supermarket smoothies generally unhealthy?
Why is orange juice unhealthy for diabetics or people who want to lose weight?
"Orange juice is made from real oranges and is therefore very healthy."
Unfortunately, lots of people have heard this erroneous sentence.
With orange juice, the moisture is squeezed out and the healthy fibers remain in the orange. The pulp that you find in the orange is the only healthy part. It causes a less high blood sugar peak.
Yes, the vitamin C is healthy, but you can also get it by dissolving a supplement in water. Then you certainly do not get the sugars that you do get with orange juice.
What makes this low-carb smoothie bowl healthy?
If you want a slightly fattier low-carbohydrate smoothie bowl, you can also replace the unsweetened almond milk with coconut cream.
This makes the smoothie bowl nice and creamy and ensures that you get more healthy fats.
This low-carb smoothie bowl is ideal to make for breakfast or as a dessert after dinner.
