    It is impossible for carbohydrates to be 5 grams and sugar to be 23 grams. Sugar grams essentially are a subset of carbs, as are the 8 grams of fiber. There are at least 31 grams of carbohydrates in this recipe (from the fiber plus the sugars), not 5 grams.
    All that said, it is not all that bad a "weight loss" smoothie, since the fat and protein (due to the nut butter and almond milk) are significant and would make this smoothie more filling than most higher-carb smoothies. It just is not as low as 5 carbs.

    If you drink this in the morning, and then go about your day, those 23 grams of sugar are honestly—negligible. If you want, amend the recipe. I’d take out the pineapple. I’m not sure how that would taste with dates anyway haha. That’s about 9 grams of sugar cut out there. Though I’d see how to add protein into this shake to make it even MORE substantial.
