Cherry Ripe vs Healthy Mummy Raw Cherry Slice

Kerrie says “It’s no secret that I love my cherry treats and The Healthy Mummy Raw Cherry Slice is one of my all time favorites. 

So I thought I’d do an interesting comparison between a serving of the Healthy Mummy Raw Cherry Slice VS a Cadbury Cherry Ripe Bar.

400% more sugar in Cherry Ripe

I was shocked to see that a Cherry Ripe bar has 400% more sugar than a piece of the Healthy Mummy Raw Cherry Slice. That’s a HUGE difference!

The sugar in the Raw Cherry Slice is all natural from the cherries and dates in the recipe and there are NO added sugars. Unlike the Cherry Ripe which is full of processed sugars. So that’s even better.

The Raw Cherry Slice not only looks amazing it tastes amazing too. And totally satisfies my chocolate craving! Get Healthy Mummy Raw Cherry Slice recipe.

Jessica says “That sneaky chocolate bar at the checkout that doesn’t really count because you just survived grocery shopping with kids and need a prize (anyone else do this? ) has 27.6g of sugar!

Swapping a processed chocolate bar like this to a Healthy Mummy Bounty Bite means you can lose weight and gain health without missing out on anything”.

Schweppes Lemonade vs Healthy Mummy Super Greens

Schweppes-vs-Healthy-Mummy-Low-Sugar-Drink

Brooke says “Before I was pregnant I was never much of a soft drink person but if I was going to have it, I would have lemonade.

When I was pregnant I would crave it. Sometimes having 2 cans a day.

My go to was the Schweppes Lemonade. So lets compare it to The Healthy Mummy Super Greens.

1 serve of Lemonade = 172 calories
1 serve Super Greens = 35 calories
1 serve Lemonade = 41.3 grams of sugar
1 serve Super Greens = less than 1 gram of sugar

I can’t believe how naive I was thinking Lemonade was a better choice than Coke.

Thanks to The Healthy Mummy, now when I’m feeling blah and I feel like I need a pick me up I’ve got my Super Greens to give me the kick I need.

Soft drink/ Energy drinks = FULL OF SUGAR

Healthy Mummy Super Greens = AMAZING, nothing but the good stuff!”.

Coca-Cola vs Healthy Mummy Super Greens

Coca-cola-sugar-comparison-Healthy-Mummy-super-greens

Cassie McKay says “Did you know we should be aiming for 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day? That’s 36g of sugar a day.

One 600mL bottle of Coke has 64g of sugar.

That’s almost 2 days worth of sugar.

I’ve made the swap from soft drink to Supergreens to cut 64g of sugar from my day.

Now is the perfect time to start thinking about how much added sugar you are having a day and how you might reduce it”.
