5 Healthiest Ingredients for Your Smoothie

Different kind of fruits made into a smoothie

For those who want to go a different route and want to be healthy, a smoothie becomes a staple. Some stores nowadays offer smoothies since it has become a popular drink among aspiring health junkies. Not all smoothies are created equally, though. If you want to start your own juice and cocktail bar or a concession stand, it would be best to avoid offering overly sugary drinks with high calories that are disguised as a healthy one. Healthy smoothies are easy to make anyway.

It is as simple as having your own blender or juicer — like the citrus juicers you see in commercial areas — and whipping out different types of fruits and veggies that would make a particularly delicious flavor. You may even change the smoothie game and give your customers the health benefits they need.

People often have mixed feelings towards carrots; they either love them or hate them. It is understandable and it may even come off as a surprise to you that carrots have made it to this list since they are not ideally the top-of-mind ingredient for a breakfast smoothie.
