“Many people don’t eat the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables. Making a fruit smoothie is an easy way to increase your produce consumption because these drinks often contain multiple servings of fruit and sometimes vegetables as well. Unlike fruit juice, smoothies also provide fiber, because you use the whole edible portion of the fruit. Fruit smoothies typically contain significant amounts of folate, vitamin C, and potassium, because fruits are good sources of these nutrients. These smoothies can also provide other essential nutrients.” – Living Strong
