Are fruit smoothies unhealthy because of the sugar?
I've always been taught that fruit and vegetables are good. Recently there seems to be a bit of a smear campaign against fructose. I understand that fruit contains a lot of sugar but isn't this something where the positives outweigh the negatives?
I recently bought a blender so I've been making smoothies out of frozen fruit, bananas and fruit juice. I've found some good combos, they taste great and I get about 4 portions of my fruit and veg in one go. All those lovely vitamins and anti-oxidants. It's like drinking health.
I'm not cutting so how concerned should I be about the sugar content?
