Orange Dreamsicle Smoothie
Orange Dreamsicle packs a creamy, citrusy kick in the pants, a better alternative to that carb-loaded breakfast bagel, right? Not so fast. An orange smoothie is a great way to add a few servings of fruit into the diet, but it's also packed with sugar—more than 70g total. That's a milk shake in disguise with nearly 18 teaspoons of sugar.
We drop all added sugars, cutting out 25g, and allow the naturally sweet fruit to shine. A creamy, dreamy, portable, sunshine-filled sip with half the calories and 70% less sugar? Now that's a resolution revolution.
