Since Alex and I are on this no-added-sugar kick, fruit has been the only source of sweetness we’ve really had. That probably sounds a little sad (no fro yo!?) but it’s actually been way easier than I thought. The other benefit? Fruits naturally taste sweeter than they did before!

So while we haven’t been eating many “sweets”, the things we are eating are sweeter than ever! So when a craving does hit me, I usually reach for some berries. They’re perfect for a smoothie because it’s easy to keep a bag of berries in the freezer and they’re still a low-sugar fruit. I’m giving up Sweet Frog… but I’m still enjoying fruity treats like this smoothie!

I’ve been known to eat this for breakfast… or dessert. It seriously tastes like a fruity sorbet! I think we’re going to start eating more fruits this week, but we’re still avoiding added sugars.
