Subject:         Adding Sugar to Smoothies

This is just a curiosity question.

If one were to add some sugar (let's say a cup) to a large smoothie made from bananas and water, would the body treat it like a smoothie made with extra-sweet bananas? In other words, would the fiber in the bananas slow the absorption of the added sugar just like the natural sugar in the bananas?

Would a smoothie made with extra-sweet kind of bananas be almost equal in it's nutrition, effect on the body, etc... to a smoothie with not very sweet bananas + sugar?

Obviously, the sugar naturally contained in fruit is better than processed, extracted sugar. But I'm still wondering how would the body react differently to the one with added sugar?

Anyone knowledgeable about this subject please satisfy my curiosity.
