Smoothies are a miracle of human ingenuity. Putting together a meal can be a pain, especially if you're attempting to eat healthy. It's much easier to grab a breakfast sandwich from 7/11 than it is to put together a homemade meal with grassfed meat and organic veggies. It's obviously important to pack in lots of vitamins and nutrients into your meals, but there are instances where time is a factor. That's why smoothies are so great. They take minutes to put together, are super healthy, and taste amazing. However, not all smoothies are created equal. Many places that sell smoothies make them with added sugar like syrups and fruit juices. It's essentially like having a fruit punch, except more expensive. Instead you should try to make your own whenever possible.
