The New York Soda Ban: Fair or Foul?


As you may have heard, New York City is pushing forward with a ban on selling sugary drinks. Led by Mayor Bloomberg, the measure aims to cut down on obesity by placing a 16-ounce cap on sugary drinks (with over 25 calories per 8 ounces). Luckily, it doesn't apply to drinks that are 100% juice or those that are more than 50% milk, so our favorite smoothies are still safe.

While we agree with the goals of the ban - to reduce obesity by encouraging people to eat and drink healthier, the means are a bit extreme. Are we going to end up with cola speakeasies? 

In the meantime, we thought it was a good time to celebrate healthy drinks, like fruit-packed smoothies to power your mornings.

Pictured at the top is the Strawberry Almond Butter Smoothie from Whole Foods Market. It uses fresh strawberries, soy milk and almond butter to offer a lot of flavor and protein without too much sugar.

We also recommend the Groovy Green Smoothie from AllRecipes.com, below. It includes yogurt, banana, apple, grapes and spinach for that great green color! But, you won't notice how healthy it is because it tastes so good.


Time to fire up the blender and make some great smoothies to show we don't need to freakin' sodas!
