The health benefits of green smoothie depends on its ingredients. Massed produced Smoothies include large amounts of fruits or vegetables which are recommended in healthy diets.
On the other hand, too many sweet fruits can lead to too much sugar. Likewise, ingredients such as protein powders, sweeteners, or ice cream are often used in smoothie recipes, but are not necessarily beneficial.
Smoothies contain dietary fibre such as pulp, frequently contain skin and seeds and therefore thicker than fruit juice, with a consistency that can be compared to milkshake.
The fibre makes smoothies more beneficial than fruit juice alone. Smoothies particularly the green variety of smoothies that include vegetables are often aimed and marketed as health conscious individuals.
Several commercial smoothies on the other hand, have added sugar, which can more than double their carbohydrate content.
Swallowing Smoothies make are less effective in providing a lasting not hungry feeling result, than eating raw fruit or vegetables that are contained in the smoothie.
