What Is A Smoothie?

A smoothie is a beverage made by combining several ingredients. A smoothie commonly contains a liquid base, such as fruit juice, milk, yoghurt, cream, or cottage cheese. However, additional ingredients like fruits, vegetables, non-dairy milk, ice cubes, whey powder, or nutritional supplements can also be incorporated. Smoothies are easy to prepare and can be modified according to taste and dietary preferences. 

The ingredients and their ratios in a smoothie determine its nutritional value. Large or balanced servings of fruits and vegetables, advised for a balanced diet or meant to replace meals, are usually included in smoothies.
