The best smoothies for detoxifying and losing weight

Smoothies were born in the USA, with its beginnings going back to juice bars from the 1920s. Smoothies later developed as a trend drink for health- and figure-conscious dieters, and especially for vegetarians.

Smoothies made from freshly pressed fruits and vegetables

What are smoothies and how do they differ from juice?

Smoothies are called whole fruit drinks. In contrast to fruit juices, smoothies not only squeeze out the juice, but also purée all but the skin of seeds of the whole fruit in a blender. The dietary fiber discarded during traditional juice pressing remains a part of the smoothie. Depending on the recipe, water, kefir, buttermilk, freshly squeezed juice, ice, and even fresh egg white as a protein source can be processed.
