Toxic Sludge

I am doing this as a public service. Smoothies are toxic sludge for diabetics. Just for reference, I shouldn't have more than 210 grams of carbs a day.

The Aloha Pineapple - 117 grams of carbs

Banana Berry Original - 112 grams of carbs

Citrus Squeeze - 110 grams of carbs

My dear friend The Librarian who is a total health nut, drinks diet soda. When asked about why he would put chemicals in his body, he responded, "Don't drink your calories."

I remember doing a quick survey of the calorie/points values of different restaurants' smoothie varieties a few years ago, and it was shocking. As delicious as they are, some smoothies can pack in like 1000 calories. I agree with your friend. It's not worth drinking your calories on something like that.
