So many smoothie recipes feature banana, but you can use frozen zucchini and some avocado (both technically fruit) to achieve that same consistency without the added sugars. Simply chop a zucchini and freeze the pieces in a container or baggie. In addition, coconut water naturally tastes sweet but is full of minerals and nutrients and has a low glycemic index. This smoothie is full of fiber and healthy fats and great for anyone looking for a lower glycemic load.
