Sugars which occur naturally in the fruits are impossible to avoid, and are not necessarily bad for you. Of course you should avoid refined white sugar, but there isn’t any in this recipe. You can leave out the agave nectar to reduce the sugar too.
At least it’s natural sugar and not sugar you would get from eating sugar cereals, cookies etc! I would probably not drink this more than once a day.
Actually the orange juice is possibly the culprit for the sugar we want to be careful of.
Hey fruits are high in sugars but also in fiber and more. Much better than a candy bar. Don’t fear sugar in thus form
I make something similar, but use coconut water…even the flavored kind has less sugar than orange juice. The agave is not needed.
