Smoothies are an excellent healthy breakfast, snack, or even dinner option! In less than 5 minutes, you can enjoy multiple servings of fruit, vegetables, healthy fats, and more!
Smoothies, also known as smoothees, are blended frozen drinks made from a variety of fruits, juices, yoghurt, supplemental powders, and ice. They're frequently sold in health food stores and fitness centres as a healthier alternative to fat-laden milkshakes or sugary soft drinks, or as meal replacements when nutritional powders are added.
