  1. These are gorgeous! However, they’re also sugar crashes in a bowl. #1, 2, and 4 have 30% more sugar than a can of Coke, with a paltry 5%-10% of your protein needs for the day. #3 is a little better, but not much protein trade-off for all that fat. Yes, they have important micronutrients, but the macros are terrible! Fructose (the sugar in fruit), especially in liquid form (juice, smoothies, smoothies in bowls) is quickly digested and hits your blood stream like a Mack truck, leaving you hungry and dizzy about an hour after you eat it. All the pepitas in the world isn’t going to slow that down! Each meal you have should have about 30g of protein, along with a good dose of fibre, and as little sugar as humanly possible. Can you still make a smoothie with those precious micronutrients? You bet. But they’ll come from vegetables, not fruits, and they won’t be as pretty. But they’ll be better for you.
