Nutritional benefits & vitamions in smoothies

 
Nutritional benefits & vitamions in smoothies

When they contain nothing but fresh fruit and veg and you drink them straight away, there's nothing fresher than a smoothie. They're bursting with vitamins (especially A and C), minerals and trace elements that are essential for your health and energy levels. Added to that, if you use whole fruit in your smoothies they'll also provide you with fibre.

"Smoothies are a great way to get all the fruit and vegetables you need," our nutritionist says. One glass as part of a varied, balanced diet can be counted as one of your 5-a-day - some smoothies even count as two!

If you add milk or yogourt to your smoothie, you're also getting a bit of dairy in there, with all the benefits it brings such as calcium, quality protein, etc. Smoothies are also natural and free of additives and preservatives, which makes them definite health food.
