Blackberries

Just like strawberries, blackberries are very low in sugar (around 7 grams per cup) and have a whopping 7 grams of fiber, making it a great choice for a weight loss goal.


Raspberries

Raspberries and blackberries are very similar in their sugar and fiber content. Raspberries also taste incredible when paired with our next low-sugar fruit on the list -- lemons!


Lemon

One full lemon has less than 2 grams of sugar and adds a refreshing tang to your smoothies. I love adding lemon juice and zest to various smoothies, especially during the summer months.


Lime

Limes can add a similar refreshing tang to a smoothie with very low sugar levels. Try pairing lime juice and zest in a smoothie with blueberries and greek yogurt.

Blueberries

Blueberries are a bit higher in sugar than the first few fruits on this list, but still relatively low. One cup comes in at around 15 grams of sugar and 4 grams of fiber, making it roughly double in sugar when compared to raspberries or blackberries. Stick to around 1/2 cup blueberries per smoothie to keep the sugar content low. If you're carb sensitive, you'll want to aim for 1/4 cup.


Banana

Bananas can easily raise the sugar level of a smoothie. Stick to 1/2 banana to keep the sugar content to around 7 grams. A lot of smoothie restaurants will use 2-3 bananas per smoothie to make the smoothie taste sweet - but this can come in at around 28-42 grams of sugar! If ordering a smoothie at a restaurant that uses bananas, make sure to ask for 1/2 of a banana.
