    When you’re using produce at the peak of it’s flavor, there is no need to add sugar, honey or even agave. No added sugar means less calories consumed. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about how many rats exactly got cancer from saccharin or how much testing has been done on aspartame.

    Does fruit have sugar? Of course. But relying on fruit for sweetness means you will also get all of the antioxidants, fiber and other nutrients not found in white sugar or corn syrup.

    Your straw is waiting.

    1. I added fresh kale or spinach to this! The strawberries and ginger cover the taste and I get all the benefits of this super food! It is great for kids, just call it the Superman or Wonder Woman drink! You do need a high-powered blender to emulsify the kale.
