Smoothies have been around for years and for all I know they are from the ancient days of Greece. However, I think that there are some very good reasons for smoothies to be included in your diet.
Fruit smoothies have become a fast food favorite because they are incredibly healthy. What you add to your smoothie is up to you, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t eat fruits for flavor.
Start with different fruits and blend them together. For instance, you can add a banana to other fruits like strawberry or pineapple. Maple syrup is also a great addition to any fruit smoothie, as it adds sweetness without being sweet.
The secret to a smoothie is milk. It’s really as simple as that. Some of the best types of smoothies will contain skim milk and that is as close to whole milk as you can get without making it taste anything like ice cream.
One of the other things that makes milk a better choice than other kinds of milk is that it doesn’t have a specific flavor. Most people prefer to add a little bit of honey or fruit flavor, but milk is often a better choice for smoothies because it has more nutritional value.
Almond milk is another good option if you want a creamy drink. It is a little pricier than regular milk, but a glass of almond milk is very high in calcium. Not only does almond milk add a nice creaminess to a smoothie, it also has lots of fiber.
Orange juice is another type of smoothie that you should consider. In fact, orange juice is probably the best substitute for milk for many people. Orange juice is full of antioxidants and also has a bitter taste that prevents your body from getting too used to the taste.
If you don’t have a blender and you really want to get creative, then make a smoothie out of your water and juice. Add a little bit of water to lemonade and you have yourself a tasty drink.
There are plenty of other beverages that you can make from water and a little bit of fruit or vegetables. You could also add protein powder or flavored shakes for a little variety.
To help get you started, you can use any of the recipes for a favorite smoothie recipe that you can find on the internet. You should probably start with one of those first, because it’s the easiest to follow.
If you are still not sure which way to go, or you aren’t sure what type of smoothie you would like to replace milk with, then start by choosing from one of the other options above. You might also find that it isn’t necessary to go with the most popular recipes available.
