FRUIT FREE KETO SMOOTHIE BOWL
KETO SMOOTHIE BOWL
Honestly never thought I would be able to create a 100% fruit free smoothie bowl.. like YOU NEED BANANAS RIGHT??
yes bananas are da bomb diggity when it comes to making the perfect açai or banana ice cream.. but yo girl CEE has a very sensitive tummy (as you guys know) and sometimes can’t even tolerate any fruit at all! So this CREAMY and delicious creation is not only for my IBS sufferers out there, but also for those who want to keep their insulin and blood sugar levels moderate, incorporate more healthy fats or even just want to give something new a try!

IS FRUIT IN SUGAR BAD FOR YOU?
Sugar in food and drinks comes in various forms.
Sugar molecules are classified as monosaccharides (single sugar molecules such as glucose and fructose) and disaccharides (more complex structures such as sucrose and lactose).
Fruit contains natural sugars
which are a mix of sucrose, fructose and glucose.
Fructose is only harmful in excess amounts, BUT It would be incredibly difficult to consume excessive amounts of fructose by eating just whole fruits.
It’s much easier to consume excess sugar from foods and drinks that contain “free sugars”
Free sugars include these same sugars (fructose, glucose, sucrose), but in this case they have been removed from their naturally occurring source (this is including dried fruit)
so NO fruit is defiantly not bad for you, but it’s just like anything.. BALANCE.
