    Smoothies are one of the best ways to include fruits in your diet.

    Not everyone wants to finish a bowl of fruit salad but everyone can drink up a delicious and refreshing glass of fruit smoothie in no time.

    If you are thinking about making a refreshing summer drink that’s not too high on sugar then this amazing fruit smoothie is just exactly what you need to drink.

    This flavorsome fruit smoothie is packed with all the nutritional benefits and vitamins one needs to start off their day.

    Health benefits

    This smoothie is perfect for people who are watching their weight as there is no added sugar. Bananas contain important nutrients such as potassium and magnesium whereas the fruits are loaded with antioxidants that are great for a youthful appearance. 1 kiwi has 5 times the vitamin C of an orange. Blueberries help prevent brain-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

    How to make Triple Threat Fruit Smoothie

    • Combine all the ingredients in a blender and process at a high speed for 40 seconds.
    • If it’s too thick, then add some milk so that reaches the desired consistency. You can also add some chia seeds to the smoothie for added health benefits.
    • Use 1 cup ice if you are not using a frozen banana.

    Trivia

    • Some people mix up and interchange smoothies with milk shakes even though there is a major difference between the two. Milkshakes include ice cream that makes it creamy, thick and sweet whereas smoothies are mostly just milk, water and yogurt based drinks that heavily rely on fruits and vegetables for their thickness.
    • Smoothies were invented by a lactose intolerant teenage boy Steven Kuhnau in the 70s. He wanted to enjoy the drink that most of his peers at milkshake joints enjoyed. Since he couldn’t have any dairy, milk and ice cream were out of the question. He started using fruits, ice and juices to concoct delicious blends and called them smoothies. Not only did it taste great but it also improved his health.
    • Smoothies have become really popular in the last decade or so due to people becoming more health conscious.
    • Did you know that strawberries are the only fruit that have their seeds outside?
    • Strawberries come from the rose family.
