My blasts arent sweet enough even though I use enough fruit. Is there anything else I can add for sweetness?

We all have different taste preferences, of course, and I fine mine get too sweet very easily. What ingredients have been too much for my palate? Red grapes and/or pineapple juice--try one or both of those in place of another ingredient.
Grapes are the one fruit I didnt buy. This morning I bought apples, red and purple grapes and cantelope
To add sweetness, I squirt some honey in it.
Captainbob, I thought about honey but wasnt sure. I know Im using more than enough fruit but for some reason when I use greens with the fruit I really cant taste the fruit. I think I will try a little honey.

What about trying Agave? I have a blueberry flavoured one and a little of it goes a long way.
Try using stevia extract. I think it best because it doesn't increase blood sugar levels. Raw honey is still sugar but has healthy healing properties. It is also best to try and get use to foods that are less sweet except for occasional treats. Use low sugar fruits in your blast like berries, green apples, plums, pears and peaches. Make half you blast veggies and the rest these low sugar fruits. Agave nectar has been touted as a healthy sweetener for a long time but the truth is it is not a health substitute for sugar. Agave nectar or syrup,, even raw is still heated so it can be concentrated to form a thick viscosity. High fructose corn syrup is about 55% fructose while most agave nectar is about 90% fructose. Too much fructose can lead to liver dysfunction and damage and obesity. http://www.foodrenegade.com/agave-nectar-good-or-bad/ Agave nectar or syrup is as high as 90% concentrated fructose (a simple sugar that occurs naturally in fruit), and the rest glucose. But the agave you can buy ranges from 90% to as little as 55% fructose (similar to high-fructose corn syrup), depending on the processing, says Roger Clemens, professor at the University of Southern California and a spokesman for the Institute of Food Technologists. Agave nectar is worse for your body than high fructose corn syrup! Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
Thanks wally. I know im spoiled for the taste of sugar and am trying to avoid alot of it but its difficult. I will get some stevia the next time I go to the store
Traecy just slowly cut back on the sweetness and you will over come it. Some people just go cold turkey and cut it out because sugar acts like an addiction in our bodies. Read my articles below. Sugar even from veggies, fruits and whole grains can be too much for our bodies. Everyone should eat a low glycemic diet. http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/public-enemy-1-sugar http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/sugar-cocaine Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
