It is unfortunate that the smoothie is often adulterated to the point where it no longer is a healthy option. Here is a perfect example of a smoothie gone wrong. It is promoted as having REAL FRUIT (puree) and juices as well as greek yogurt; thus promoted as healthy. A quick glance at a medium serving of the smoothie details 0 grams of fibre and 42 grams of sugar! That 0 grams of fibre tells me that there is little to no whole fruit in this smoothie, just roughly 10 tsp of sugars/juices/concentrates/purees extracted from fruit. In short, they are marketing the smoothie as healthy when in fact the most healthful property, fibre, is completely absent.
