Health Benefits of the Smoothies
Juicing and smoothies are all the rage right now. Blending produce into a smoothie, however, preserves fiber – and a smoothie can deliver an extra boost of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals because it often includes fruit skins and pith. If your smoothie includes yogurt or milk, you get some calcium too.
