Helpful hints

  • Just Whites® are a powdered egg white product available at your local grocery store in the baking section.  The product is pasteurized so it is safe to consume without cooking.
  • If using frozen fruit, the degree of “frozenness” will determine how much your blender will be able to take. It will also give a more “soft serve” consistency than a smoothie, which is great in the warmer season.
  • Adjust sugar or artificial sweetener to taste.
  • Use artificial sweetener instead of sugar to reduce to 28 grams carbohydrate and 2 carbohydrate choices.
