Benefits of smoothies
They are quick and easy to make. Smoothies are a clever way to add nutritious vegetables and fruits into your diet. Smoothies contain fiber and slow-digesting ingredients like nuts, seeds, and yogurt. They are low-sugar and low-fat, keeping you full and preventing hunger pangs. Since the blender already breaks down the food into liquid, they also become easier to digest.
