What Is A Smoothie?

A smoothie is a cold, blended drink made from milk or fruit juice with fresh or frozen fruit, yogurt, honey or sweetener, and ice cubes.
Smoothies are a healthy snack or meal because they provide nutrients that you need throughout the day in an easy-to-make and consume format.

The Benefits of Smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to get your daily dose of vitamins, minerals, and protein. It's cheaper than buying a meal at a juice bar and you can control the ingredients. Plus, they're delicious!
Some people think that smoothies are just for breakfast or a post-workout snack but they can be enjoyed anytime of day. They're refreshingly light for those hot summer days and satisfying enough for when you need some extra energy throughout the day. Smoothies are also easy on your wallet. If you buy the ingredients in bulk and make them yourself, you'll save money from buying expensive fruit drinks from cafes.
If you have kids, making a smoothie is an excellent way to get them started with eating fruits and vegetables. By using frozen fruits instead of fresh ones, you can give your little ones their favourite fruit flavour without having to worry about it spoiling too quickly or if it will be too sour for them.
Smoothies can also help you break bad habits like having sugary snacks in-between meals or skipping breakfast altogether. They contain plenty of fibre and protein which will keep hunger away so you won't be reaching for something else while on-the-go!
