5 Ingredients You Should Never Add to Your Smoothie

Smoothies are everyone’s go-to healthy drink, but the line between making a good and a bad one is very thin. Adding one wrong ingredient can completely ruin all the benefits this beverage brings, but we’re here to help you avoid making mistakes.

Canned Fruit

Canned fruit may be an easy option, but they’re often filled with sugars and artificial flavorings – two ingredients you should definitely avoid when making a smoothie.

Flavored Yogurt

Stick to full-fat yogurts when making your smoothies, since flavored version often contain more sugar than you should have in your healthy beverage.

Ice Cream

Adding ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sherbet to your fitness drink only means one thing – you’re making a dessert, not a healthy smoothie.

Raw Beets

If you’re one of those people who likes adding beets to their smoothie, make sure to cook them first since most blenders aren’t powerful enough to process them.

Fruit Juice

If you have to add more liquid to your smoothie and feel tempted to pour some fruit juice into your blender, just go with water instead.
