Low-Glycemic

Fruit smoothies don’t have to be loaded with sugar. In fact, smoothies make it easy to incorporate natural sweeteners that are low on the Glycemic Index, while still satisfying your sweet tooth. Creating a well-balanced smoothie means highlighting the healthy benefits and making sure that it tastes great, too! Foods that are low in sugar but loaded with nutrition can provide us sustained energy without crashing, mood swings or irritability. You can also bring more balance to your day with a quick five-minute meditation and some slow, deep breathing.

Low-glycemic Yacon Syrup provides an earthy sweetness, but without refined sugar. It contains high levels of inulin, which is a complex sugar that is actually not digestible, so although it tastes sweet, it actually just passes through the body without spiking our blood sugar levels. Navitas Naturals’ Yacon Slices and Syrup are also rich in fructooligosaccharides, which support the production of probiotics that are essential for supporting a healthy digestive system.

Coconut Palm Sugar, which is sustainably harvested (and more ecologically friendly than cane sugar, producing 50-75 percent more sugar per acre!), is also quite low in the Glycemic Index, making it an ideal substitute for anyone with sensitivity to glucose or monitoring their weight. Navitas Naturals’ Coconut Palm Sugar is also healthier than cane sugar with vitamins like B and C, and minerals including potassium, magnesium, zinc and iron. Coconut Sugar can be used as a 1:1 healthy and nutritious substitution in virtually any recipe that calls for cane sugar.

Additional foods that can provide a sweet taste without being too high in sugars include pomegranates, berries, cashews, almonds, coconut water and mesquite powder.
