If you threw a PB&J in a blender, this smoothie is what you’d end up with. Only difference is, it would take about 24 Smuckers Uncrustables to match this massive sugar load. The problem with this smoothie isn’t the ingredients—among them, peanut butter, banana, and honey—it’s the proportions. Combine calorie-dense foods like these in one drink, and it doesn’t matter how much nutritional heft they might pack on their own—together, they’ll only add heft to your midsection. Stick with the fruit-based Celestial Cherry High, which is bolstered by 4.5 grams of fiber. Make this swap just twice a week and you’ll lose nearly 9 pounds by the end of the summer!
