Are Smoothies Really Healthy for You?

Smoothies are a great way to increase your daily servings of fruits and vegetables. One of the healthiest ways to enjoy a smoothie is to make your own at home to avoid unnecessary added sugar. Adding protein and fiber will help keep you full and provide antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. For this recipe, you can use any combination of frozen fruit, such as blueberries, raspberries, pineapple or peaches.

What Is the Best Juice to Put in a Fruit Smoothie?

We recommend using 100% pure fruit juice, which does not contain added sugar. At the store, read the labels and watch out for juice drinks that only contain a small percentage of real juice. One option is to use 100% pure orange juice. For extra fiber, look for juice that contains pulp.

Can You Make Smoothies with Milk or Water Instead of Yogurt?

Yes, you can, although the texture of the smoothie will be slightly thinner. We use nonfat plain yogurt for our recipe, but feel free to use milk or plant-based milk, such as plain unsweetened soymilk or almond milk.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
