Delicious, low sugar smoothies has always been paramount at City Blends. So, it should come as no surprise that in early 2013, City Blends announced that all its smoothies are now sweetened with Stevia! Stevia is a naturally occurring sweetener that is extracted from the Stevia rebaudiana plant that grows natively in Brazil and Paraguay. Stevia is 200 times sweeter than traditional sugar, does not contain calories, and is FDA-approved. All of this means that you can feel even better about the health benefits of your favorite City Blend Smoothie!
