Smoothie… Smoothies are so in trend now a days. Ask any fitness or health freak about smoothie and they will have their own version of smoothie stories. I, myself am in love with smoothies. Its healthy, tasty, supply me with all the nutrients I require and its the best way to kick start your day.

What is a Smoothie and how is it different from juice?

  • Smoothie is a blend of raw fruits and vegetables. They include dietary fibre which makes it thicker compare to a juice.
  • Smoothie is made of blending whole fruits and Vegetables whereas in a juice the liquid is extracted from Β the whole fruit or vegetable.
  • Smoothie is a whole food in a semi liquid form and juicing discards the fiber.
  • One large glass of smoothie can replace your meal and can still make you feel full till the next meal. Juices are limiting. As fiber and few nutrients are extracted, it can make you hungry after an hour.
  • On a very active day, a smoothie can supply you with instant energy and keep you running whereas a juice can energise you but not for long.

Smoothies are easy to make. Can be made with fruits and vegetables of your choice, a mix and match of your favourites, you can even add protein powder if you are more into fitness, seeds, nuts you can add everything you love and just blend it to make a yummy recipe.
