Recipe: How To Make a Healthy Smoothie

Smoothies are very popular. I am often asked if smoothies are healthy? When I demonstrate how to make a smoothie people always seem to be amazed at how simple and quick it is to make a meal in a glass. You don't need any special foods or fancy equipment.

A smoothie is a great way to start the day, especially in summer. Make sure your smoothie is balanced and not full of sugar so that it is a healthy addition to your daily diet, rather than a meal that should rather be an occasional treat.
