    Thanks for sharing this information on smoothies.  It is certainly an excellent way to get all the goodness of fruit and vegetables into the body.

    I have never actually had a smoothie, but your post has certainly raised my interest.

    I assume that blending fruits doesn’t spoil any of goodness and that they simply transfer to liquid format?

    It is interesting to note the prices of smoothies bought in a shop.  Making your own would certainly be a lot cheaper.  And as you say, a lot healthier too.

    Thanks for the information.

      Hello, yes smoothies are delicious and very nutritious. Typically, blending fruits isn’t nutritionally equivalent to the same whole fruit but there are some properties that are still present. Great benefits overall and a healthier option:)

    I eat a lot of smoothies, all of them homemade. I usually add natural healthy fats like avocado oil, and olive oil because most of us do not get enough healthy fats in our diets. I still have all the raw goodness but I add in the healthy fats. Do you have any thoughts on adding healthy fats to smoothies?

      thanks for your comment and I agree that healthy fats are imperative to include in your diet, whether in your smoothies, alone or added to cooking as you gain many benefits from it – Here is an article all about healthy fats –

    My husband and myself were recently talking about fixing smoothies, because it will be a good way to the nutrients we need. We really want to consume more fruits and vegetables per day. The reason we haven’t started making them is because I am not sure about the combinations that can be used and the proportions. I also don’t want to be consuming too many calories. I saw a little circle in your article that gives me ideas and I made a note of those best sellers. Thank you for the guidance.

      Its good to check out how much you can consume and the proportions as well as calories through reliable sources, it’s best to consult a nutritionist or dietician for individual needs:)

    I greatly appreciate how much validity and credibility you presented in this article. You are just fresh with statistics, insights, and helpful tidbits on how to best consume smoothies and more importantly what to look out for.

    I especially appreciate how you not only explain why smoothies are good for you but how you even debunk some myths shrouding what constitutes a good smoothie? For example, I found it especially helpful when you said that it is important to have fresh fruits and vegetables instead of those that are processed, artificial, or store brought. 

    In my blender, that was a home run. I would love to know more about good, healthy smoothies.

      A range of fresh vegetables and fruit are crucial to eat daily to gain some nutrition and avoid ‘binge eating’. 

      It is great to use blenders for ease and adding in those edibles that can be difficult to eat whole! Its great to use a sleek blender with a powerful motor, easy to use and precision-engineered blades that’ll whip those up effortlessly and can last a long time – check it out here
