Obviously, naturally occurring sugar is definitely preferable to the added, refined kind (corn syrup? yuck!). Still, if you’re watching your sugar intake, you should pay attention to which fruits you’re eating because some of them do have a sky high sugar content, whereas some have an incredibly low one.
Do you know the fruits with the lowest sugar content? Here are 5 of them:
Yes, avocados are considered fruits! Did you know that an entire raw avocado only has about one gram of sugar? Plus, it’s got tons of heart healthy fats that will keep you feeling fuller longer.
Cranberries are way too healthy to only be eating at thanksgiving! One cup of cranberries (fresh, of course, not the canned stuff!) has only about 4 grams of sugar.
Raspberries are a great ingredient in smoothies, because not only are they delicious but they add five grams of sugar per cup. As an added bonus, they’ve got more fiber than most other berries, so they’ll help fill you up.
These berries only have about 7 grams of sugar per cup, so they’re a great guilt free way of filling up without worrying about getting a sugar rush.
One cup of raw strawberries serves up approximately 7 grams of sugar, not to mention 85 milligrams of vitamin C—which gives you your daily recommended intake!
These fruits are 5 of the best as far as low sugar content goes, so you can pretty much eat as many as you like!
