Introduction: Why Fruit Smoothies are the Absolute Best Way to Start Your Day

Fruit smoothies are a delicious and healthy way to start your day. They are a great breakfast choice for people who have a busy morning ahead of them. They are easy to make, and they can be made with ingredients that you already have at home.

Fruit smoothies are also a great option for people who want to maintain a healthy lifestyle and need to eat more fruits and vegetables but don't have time to prepare them in the morning.

In addition, fruit smoothies contain protein which helps keep you full longer than other breakfast options such as cereal or toast. This is because protein slows the release of sugar into your bloodstream, which keeps your blood sugar levels stable for longer periods of time.

What Makes a Good Fruit Smoothie?

A smoothie is a cold drink made by blending fruit, milk, yogurt, ice cream or sherbet with a liquid. A fruit shake is similar to a smoothie but it can also be made with milk and ice cream.

There are many ways to make a fruit shake or smoothie. But the most important thing you need to remember is that it needs to be cold and refreshing.

The best fruits for making shakes and smoothies are bananas, strawberries, blueberries, oranges and raspberries. These fruits have high water content which makes them perfect for shakes and smoothies because they will not make the drink too heavy or too sweet.

Lastly, a good blender will ensure you make a good smoothie. Being able to make sure the fruit is blended throughout and doesn't leave big chunks or blobs of yogurt will make sure it is enjoyable.

We use the Vitamix Con A3300 Ascent blender for our smoothies. You will have no problem making any kind of smoothie in one of these.

We also use stainless steel straws and glass straws which we find superior over plastic and they are also better for the environment.
