A smoothie is thick, rich, cool blended drink produced using pureed fruits, vegetables, and at times items like yogurt, frozen yogurt, or soymilk. Smoothies might be made with different fixings such as water, ice, organic fruit juice, sweeteners like agave nectar, sugar, and syrup, whey powder, nuts, nut spread, seeds, tea, cocoa or other healthful supplements.
Smoothies made entirely of whole fruits and veggies, and whenever wanted, a little soymilk or nonfat dairy, are tasty and nutritious. However, remember that smoothies are a concentrated form of nutrition, and can contain high percentages of sugar or fruit acids. Consume them in moderation until you are sure of their affects on your digestive system. This Orange-Tangerine smoothie is great after a workout, as a snack, or anytime you need an energy boost.
