5 Non-Fruit Smoothies For When You Want To Cut Out Sugar

This is a blog about what I like to call “veggie smoothies”. These are smoothies that contain no fruit, but instead vegetables and fruits of your choice.

Sharing is caring!

Smoothies are a great way to pack in a large portion of your fruit and veggie servings quickly. They are especially helpful when it comes to hiding these foods in your picky eater’s diets! However, a cursory search of smoothies on Pinterest will show you that most are based around multiple fruits, which can add up in the sugar department pretty fast. If you are trying to cut down on sugar or have to avoid it due to a health concern, you need to check out some non-fruit smoothies! I personally have been on the hunt for these so I don’t experience a sugar crash and I have to say these all look delicious.

Here are 5 great non-fruit smoothies for when you want to reduce sugar.

Then head over to our 5 green smoothie recipes for beginners!

1. Fruit-Free Green Smoothie

Ok, I’ll admit that technically, this smoothie has fruit in it, because as we all know, the avocado is a fruit! You knew that, right? In addition to the avocado, this frosty treat also contains spinach, cucumber, parsley and a bit of lemon (yeah, 1 more fruit). It’s a smoothie that is detoxifying and alkalizing, and taste better than chomping on a bit of celery all morning!

Rest assured, this is still a healthy smoothie even with a name that involves Cookie Dough! You don’t have to sacrifice flavor, just because you aren’t including the sweet taste of fruit. The walnut butter gives the rich, cookie flavor that most of us can’t say no to. Add in some ground flaxseed, almond milk, spinach, vanilla protein powder, vanilla extract and cinnamon and this is going to taste more like a milkshake then a healthy smoothie.
