Fruit Smoothie recipe

Updated on July 13, 2015

We all are always looking to combine health and taste in food but unfortunately the tasty foods are not healthy or the healthy foods are not tasty. One of the biggest problem is children would not touch a healthy food and parents would always worry about the children not eating healthy food. So those parents worrying about kids not eating healthy food should try this smoothie. Now Smoothie by definition is a blended or sweetened beverage which has been made from fresh fruit. In addition of fresh fruits, the Smoothie can also contain crushed nuts, frozen fruits, honey, sugar, or sweeteners and sometimes syrup. Usually people like them cold so it can have some ice too. The smoothie are quite thick and are more dense than slush drinks you get in the market. Sometimes to make them more healthier some places add soy milk or green tea or some other nutritional supplements in to them. Though they were invented in USA in 1930, they became widely popular only in 1960s. Now they are available all over the world in all kind of cafes and coffee shops. In some countries they are bottled too and sold like colas.

But we all agree that we all love them especially the kids. So if we make them healthy then they are very good for the kids. They are easy to make and the ingredients are easily available all over the world.

      I love making smoothies and have also written a hub titled Fruit and Yogurt Smoothie with Cacao Nibs... I vary our smoothies depending upon what kind of fresh fruit and other ingredients I have in our home at any one time. That is the nice thing about smoothies. They never need be the same from one day to the next. Gave your recipe 5 stars + up and useful votes.
