Smoothie is a drink which is a combination of  fruits or vegetable with or without  dairy products .  


For the past few years people are becoming  very health conscious and talking about healthy eating and drinking.  Even though teenagers are attracted to fast food, a considerable amount of the girls and middle aged men and women are started paying attention to their weight and diet plan.


If we go to any dietician or health planner, the first thing they will recommend you is juices and smoothies. Although for the sake of argument we can say both are same, Smoothie has larger amount of fiber than juice.


There are so many varieties of healthy vegetable smoothies  you can make at home. For example take small bunch of blanched  spinach, few  washed coriander leaves, 1 lemon,  pinch of pepper and salt and half a glass of water.  Blend all these in a blender, pour it in a glass and drink it. If you want to reduce wait, you can have this instead of oily breakfast.  Smoothies are enriched with vitamins and minerals and have very few calories, will give you the energy you needed until  your lunch time. You can replace spinach with bottle guard or cucumber, and mint with coriander leaves. Likewise you can have sugarless fruit smoothie also.  If you are not worried about your weight,  then you can have banana and milk , strawberry and yogurt  or chocolate and ice cream smoothies also.


So enjoy this summer with smoothie of your choice.
