    Aren't the carbohydrates high

      Hi Karen, great question!

      Canadian Dietary reference intakes suggest that adults consume 45% to 65% of their total calories from carbohydrates. So if the other foods in your day are more substantial in protein and fat, having this smoothie can be perfectly fine.

      I'd like to point out that there is also quite a bit of fiber in this recipe (11 g/serving). This is important for how your body digests food. You can think of it this way: fibre slows your body's absorption of carbohydrates. The more fibre, the more gradually your blood sugars will increase which will keep you full for longer and give you sustained energy.

      However, if you prefer to have a more balanced smoothie there are many options! You can add a few spoonfuls of plain greek yogurt, a healthy splash of plain kefir, a handful of unsalted almonds, a couple spoons of natural almond butter, or a scoop of your favourite protein powder.
