I went to www.calorieking.com and did a search on Planet Smoothie. It lists them all with the nutritional info, but they all have a dash under sugar. The carbs are very high though.

Curious about what they are hiding. I never did receive a response from Planet Smoothie.

I am pretty basic with my smoothies. I put a cup of fruit, a cup of plain yogurt, a few ice cubes and a scoop of flavored protein powder. For my fruits, I use defrosted frozen berries (either a mixture or strawberries or raspberries or blueberries, or mangos). For my protein powder, I use Jay Robb's whey protein with stevia in either strawberry or vanilla. If I have no fruit, I use a cup of orange juice. Or, if I am out of yogurt I use a cup of orange juice. Sometimes I add a half of a frozen banana cut up in pieces. My favorite smoothie is a cup of mango, a cup of yogurt, half a frozen banana and a scoop of vanilla protein powder. It tastes like banana pudding and is very creamy.

Hi everyone!

Out of curiosity what ingredients do you make your smoothies with? I'm quite new to eating clean and I don not have the book. Any tips would be extremely welcomed.

Let's see how this goes. I emailed them and said that I was diabetic and asked for an ingredient list and how to order without all the sugars. Wish me luck.

I know I'm naive, but it really burns me that they would fib. Not telling is one tihng, but actually lying to customers who may have serious health reasons for asking seems really low.

We need to understand the same people that are working at McDonald's are working at the smoothie places!!! Their level of training and expertise in nutritional issues should always be suspect!!!

I had a similar thing happen with a frozen dessert I had been eating...the claims are all natural, sugar free, fructose sweetened, blah, blah, blah...turns out it is sweetened with crystalline fructose which is not fruit juice at all!!!

I haven't had any in a week after eating it almost daily for a month and I am finally starting to feel better!!!

I agree with the other posters...your best bet is to make your smoothies at home!!!

I also make my smoothies at home so I know exactly what's in them!

I love to make smoothies at home. The only place I buy them about 1-2 times yearly is at Keva Juice. The owner there is super health conscious and refuses to not be honest with customers. She will add sweetener if you ask for it, not the other way around.

I think the only way to be sure what your food has in it is to make it yourself. Restaurants lie especially about thier "healthy choices". There have been a bunch of recent news reports on this very subject. I included a link to a site with a few of these sites on another team I'm on. If you like I could post that here too.
