  • Smoothie is a thick beverage made from blended raw fruit and/or vegetables, with other ingredients such as water, ice, dairy products or sweeteners.However, too many sweet fruits can lead to too much sugar.
  • Smoothies include dietary fiber (e.g. pulp, often also skin and seeds) and the fiber makes smoothies healthier than fruit juice alone.
  • Similarly, ingredients such as protein powders, sweeteners, or ice cream are often used in smoothie recipes, but are not necessarily healthy.
  • Smoothies—particularly green smoothies (which include vegetables)—are often marketed to health-conscious people.
  • Green smoothies consist of typically 40-50% green vegetables—usually raw-leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, collard greens, celery, parsley, or broccoli—the rest being mostly or entirely fruit.
  • Most raw green leafy vegetables are bitter, but this can be ameliorated by suitable choice of vegetables (e.g. baby spinach is almost flavorless) or fruit (e.g. banana softens both the flavor and texture).
  • Green smoothies are healthier than other smoothies, as balanced diets recommend a substantial proportion of vegetables (particularly green leafy ones), then go green for better health benefits.
