A smoothie topped with some crunch makes for a complete breakfast in a bowl! The extra ingredients make this thick fruit-and-veggie blend more filling than a drinkable smoothie.

    This looks so yummy! Concern: isn’t 34g of carbs and 19g of sugar high in comparison to how much fiber and protein is in this? I mean, maybe if my blood sugar wasn’t super high I wouldn’t have to worry too much if I had this as a small portion after unsweetened tea and a high fiber/protein meal? (Honestly question)
