Healthy breakfast smoothies
A smoothie (occasionally spelled smoothee or smoothy) is a thick beverage made from blended raw fruit and/or vegetables, often with other ingredients such as water, ice, dairy products or sweeteners.
Smoothies include dietary fiber (e.g. pulp, often also skin and seeds) and so are thicker than fruit juice, with a consistency similar to a milkshake. The fiber makes smoothies healthier than fruit juice alone. Smoothies - particularly green smoothies (which include vegetables) - are often marketed to health-conscious people, for example as a healthier alternative to milkshakes.
