Juiced Up - The Consequences of Steroids: SWOLE Ep. 3
When a delivery of limited edition Blackberry Bliss smoothies from Jamba Juice showed up in our office, my first thought was, "Free smoothies!" My second: "How many calories are in those things?"
Many people assume that since smoothies are packed with fruit, they must be healthy. Fruit is great, but the truth is that smoothies are often loaded with calories. Those that have high-cal mix-ins (like peanut butter) and added sugar are the worst, but even the 100% juice kind can have more calories than you might expect. The problem is usually the size: Does anyone really need to drink 24 oz of juice in one sitting? I think not.
As for the Blackberry Bliss smoothie, it turns out that the 16 oz cup I picked up has 260 calories and 1 gram of fat in it. As smoothies go that's actually not too bad—especially considering that you're getting 2.5 servings of fruit and 4 grams of fiber. But it also has 54 grams of sugar (thanks to natural fruit sugar plus sherbet and sorbet in the mixture). So I downed about a third of it, and even though it was really delicious I forced myself to put the rest in the fridge to save for later.
Most Americans get way too many calories from supersized, super-sweet beverages.
