I love whole fruit juices and smoothies. I also love that smoothies made with fruit don’t really need any additional / added sugar – because fruit is already so naturally sweet! Adding a touch of milk ups the creaminess factor.
Note: If you don’t like Soy Milk, you can use 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (40 calories for 1 cup), or even regular 1% organic milk (100 calories for 1 cup). Using regular organic 1% milk makes this drink even sweeter and tastes just like a milkshake!
If you use 1/2 cup Almond Milk: 125 calories, 5g fiber and 0.5g protein
If you use 1 cup Almond Milk: 150 calories, 5g fiber and 1g protein
If you use 1/2 cup Soy Milk or 1/2 cup 1% milk: 150 calories, 5g fiber and 4.5g protein
If you use 1 cup Soy Milk or 1 cup 1% milk: 200 calories, 5g fiber and 9g protein.
