I've been making smoothies without bananas or dates lately to decrease my sugar and carb intake especially earlier in the morning. Using coconut meat or avocados instead of bananas emphasizes on eating more healthy fats, which are still filling and low-glycemic.
Avoiding sweet and high carb foods in the morning will help decrease sugar cravings throughout the day. This smoothie does contain fruit but not a lot of high carb fruits and the dragon fruit packets are unsweetened.
The best part about this smoothie is that it's naturally bright pink! Dragon fruit is naturally bright fuschia pink. It's also filled with iron, fiber, and magnesium, which should be incorporated into our daily diet.
The cocao powder makes this smoothie taste like a chocolate milkshake, for all you chocolate lovers out there. Hope you enjoy it!
