- Why are smoothies healthy?
Smoothies are healthy and there’s no denying that. These are prepared from fresh, healthy ingredients and consumed as soon as possible afterwards. Smoothies are also considered vitamin bombs because they are made by blending fruits and green vegetables together in a blender to create a smooth consistency. Hence the name, from the English word smooth, which means fine, soft, smooth in German. The healthy drinks can just as well be prepared in a blender or blender. It is important with every preparation method that the healthy ingredients of the fruit and vegetables used are not lost. But on the contrary! You can enjoy these in the freshly mixed smoothie in the same concentration as in the products used. Vitamins and botanicals are very well preserved when blended. It is precisely these that strengthen our immune system and therefore improve our overall state of health.
Fresh ingredients make a healthy drink.
Smoothies are typically vegan depending on how they’re made, but can also contain healthy vegetable oils if you add avocado or flaxseed to the drink. In addition, fruit drinks logically belong to the healthy raw food category. That means you can use those fruits that taste really good for your smoothie. You can combine these as you like and get the taste you want. For example, if you’re in the mood for something sweet, take a banana and a red apple. Only then can you add leafy greens, such as spinach, lettuce, kale, and others. This will cause your smoothie to change color and perhaps look green with a high percentage of green veggies. This is how you conjured up a fresh green smoothie. But green definitely means particularly healthy, because this drink contains an above-average amount of chlorophyll. This phytochemical is said to make us healthy, happy and even make us look younger. Great right?

- Smoothies – bought ready or prepared yourself?
Of course, you can always buy ready-made smoothies in the nearby department store and bring them home with you. They attract attention with their bright colors and have very different tastes. Yes, but there is a healthier alternative to the store-bought smoothies and that is the homemade ones. It is much more practical to mix your vitamin-rich drink together yourself. For this you can use those ingredients that exactly suit your taste. You can also be absolutely sure of the quality of the homemade smoothies. On the one hand, you can determine the consistency as you wish. On the other hand, the smoothies you make are undoubtedly healthier than the ones you buy. Unfortunately, the latter often contain hidden ingredients such as sugar and flavorings. That is to say, they have more calories than you want and can’t help you much further if you’re looking to shed a few pounds.
