In Reply to: Adding Sugar to Smoothies posted by Linda on August 20, 2014 at 11:04 pm:

1 cup of sugar is about 200g of sugar. That would be MEGA sweet and
most couldnt handle that sweet of a taste. Me and Freelee could BUT
only if we had an appetite.

Start with 50g and go with there. Ive found the organic bananas you
buy in the USA are FAR sugarier than the bland organic ones you
generally get here in Australia. Why is that? The soil quality is better in
Ecuador, Peru, Mexico etc. That means more sugar and a better tasting
food as it has a higher brix values aka minerals.

When we are in Thailand we lose motivation to add sugar to our fruit
meals as they are SO much sweeter over there. One visit to any fruit
farm and you dig into the soil and you can see why.

The body will react the same to a ripe banana smoothy that contains
300g of sugar rich bananas or 200g of sugar with 100g of banana

I know, Ive done both and tested blood sugars with both.

Since coming back to oz my legs feel a lot more dead on the bike cos
Im eating aussie fruit compared to sweet thai fruit. Im back adding
sugar and feel good again when pushing beyond 5 watts per kg up the
hill or doing a 12 hour day behind the computer.

As with any food, rinse your mouth with water afterwards. Sugary
banana smoothies are good though as they are so liquid vs sticky like
a cookie.
