What’s Really In That “Nutritious” Smoothie

Hellooo everyone, There is a lot of misinformation circulating regarding what constitutes a “healthy” smoothie.  I feel like everyday I see at least a few instagram posts of bloggers or social media celebrities promoting some weight-loss smoothie or protein powder.  Beyond social media, nearly all of the “Smoothie King”-type smoothie stands around offer drinks that they market as nutritious and healthy alternatives.  In reality, these drinks are often filled with sugars, artificial flavors and sweeteners, dairy, and loads of dairy-based protein.…
