So Much Sugar!

Did you know that the average Americans downs about 22 teaspoons of sugar per day?

But most people don’t think they’re eating this much. How do we consume so much sugar without realizing it? Sugar is hidden in many foods – energy bars, peanut butter, yogurt (especially yogurt!), protein bars, crackers, bread, cereal, salad dressings, snack mixes, and more.

And this added sugar comes in many different forms, which means it’s listed under many different names like agave, barley malt, brown rice syrup, cane juice, coconut sugar, corn syrup, demerara, honey, maple syrup, molasses, panela, rapdura, raw sugar, Sucanat, and more.

Childhood Obesity

And the typical diet fed to children increases a child’s risk for obesity and other diseases. AND it conditions their tastes, making it more difficult for them to break the sugar habit when they are older.

The Biggest Killer

Diet related disease is the biggest killer in the United States. Cleaning up our diet can prevent illnesses – everything from cancer to irritable bowel syndrome to autoimmune issues.  And one of the key factors in cleaning up our diet is to ditch the sugar.

Notes about this Sugar-Free Strawberry Milk

You can make this delicious strawberry milk with fresh or frozen strawberries. And you can vary the milk used depending on your personal preference.

If your children have never tried store-bough strawberry milk, then they’re sure to love this. If they are already hooked on the artificially-flavored, artificially-colored store stuff, then you may want to add some sweetener to this recipe to closer mimic what they’re used to. It’ll still be way better for you and your kids than the store-bought strawberry milk. And every time you make it, you can add a little less sweetener.

Or you could also use a little banana or dates to sweeten the milk naturally.
