Blueberry Yogurt Fiber Smoothie

1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup 1 % milk
1 cup Greek nonfat plain yogurt
8 packets Splenda
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups crushed ice

Blend all ingredients for about 5 to 7 minutes on medium speed until it is WELL BLENDED. Stop the blender.

Add 2 cups crushed ice. Blend on high speed for 2 minutes. You’re just trying to cool the smoothie down, not make a frappe.

Got the fiber blues?

  1. Have you ever considered substituting honey for the Splenda? I don’t trust all those chemicals! Nice blog!

    • I’m diabetic, so sugar-free is necessary. Plus, I’m a chemical engineer and have studied biochemistry and know why to trust Splenda in particular. Splenda is sucrose (a natural sugar) in which one of the -OH groups has been substituted with a -Cl through a simple reaction with hydrochloric acid. By doing this, the sugar no longer bonds to the enzyme in your digestive system that metabolizes carbohydrates. The sucralose passes straight through the kidneys into urine. I’ve studied the tests and spoken with the doctors, hygienists, and others (I work in an agency with these kind of professionals) and absolutely trust it. If Splenda gives you the willies, try Stevia, which is a plant extract.

You can reply, but if I think you're being offensive or overly stupid, I may not let it be posted.
