I haven’t been making very many smoothies because I’m trying to finish up my tub of Vega One. In this smoothie, combining the vanilla almond milk + cherries was yummy but since the cherries weren’t very sweet, I had to add the banana. Posting these recipes are really eye opening as to the grams of sugar I’m getting, even though I try to minimize the amount of fruit. I may have to quit smoothies too 😦
