My last post was about using Agave Nectar, and we get a lot of questions about other types of sugars to use in recipes. There are a lot of types of sugars and sweeteners out there, and it can be confusing which one is the most nutritious. We like to tell our customers that sugar is sugar, no matter what form (syrup, nectar, floral, etc). No matter which type you end up using at home, always use your sweeteners in moderation!
If adding a little bit of sweetener will help you drink your green smoothies, then we encourage using your favorite type of sweetener. A lot of us grew up drinking sweet drinks like apple juice, and we’ve been conditioned to drink sweet things, so don’t feel bad about wanting to add in a little extra sweetener at first! The goal is to use less sweeteners to your morning breakfast smoothie every day, until you don’t feel a need to add any at all. This may take a little time getting used to, but it’s all about adjusting your taste to more natural foods.
