Creamy No Fruit Smoothie

Creamy No Fruit Smoothie

I’m all about smoothies for breakfast. Not only are they an easy way to start the day packed with good nutrients, but it also takes decision making out of the equation when you’re pressed for time and much more likely to grab something unhealthy out of convenience.

However, you’d be surprised at how many people see me drinking a smoothie for breakfast and ask me if I’m dieting. (I’m not, for the record).

This probably stems from the fact that most people think of smoothies as a couple pieces of fruit, non-dairy milk (or some other liquid), and ice. Their own experience trying to replace a meal with this type of smoothie likely left them hungry an hour later and feeling like they were depriving themselves. No wonder they think I’m dieting.

What they don’t realize is that my smoothies typically contain a few servings of vegetables, fiber, protein, healthy fat and little to no fruit.

Mason jar filled with vegetables on a cutting board.

Wait, why no fruit?! Because starting your day off with multiple servings of fruit (1 serving = 1/2 cup) can wreak havoc on your blood sugar levels. This will make you hangry an hour later and increase your cravings for more sugar.

Now, before you get angry at me, please understand that I am NOT saying fruit is bad for you. Whole fruit is filled with vitamins and minerals that your body needs. It also has fiber, which actually helps stabilize your blood sugar. However, when you’re breaking it down in a smoothie (or juice) a lot of that fiber is lost, meaning you’re getting all of the sugar and none of the fiber to help even it out.

So, despite all your good intentions behind having a strawberry banana smoothie for breakfast, you’ll be scrounging for food an hour later and possibly berating yourself for lack of willpower – even though willpower has NOTHING to do with it.

Even if you’re not worried about all of that, it’s good to switch things up every once and awhile. Hence, the No Fruit Smoothie. And, no, it doesn’t taste like you’re drinking a salad.

There’s a lot of leeway in this recipe – I usually just throw in the vegetables I have on hand. Experiment and see which ones work best for you. The things I wouldn’t recommend changing are the 1/4 cup sweet potato (for a touch of sweet & creamy), the vanilla protein powder (for protein & flavor), and some type of healthy fat (for satiety).

Unless you have loads of time on your hands and want to steam fresh veggies and freeze them, I suggest you buy organic frozen vegetables from your grocery store. Same nutrients, less time commitment. That’s a win-win in my book.

If you make this recipe, let me know. I wanna see it! Leave a comment, rate it, and share a photo on Instagram with the hashtag #dietconfessionals.

  • Wow! I have had trouble with sugar spikes from fruit in a smoothie, as I would get hungry soon after drinking it. I changed this morning to almond butter, protein powder, nitro greens, almond milk and ice and three hours afterwards … NO HUNGER! Thanks for the simple change-maker for me! Love you Karlie!!!
