Advantages of smoothies and homemade juice
Compared to most juices from the Tetra-Pak, smoothies are, in my opinion, the healthier and more nutritious alternative, as they do not contain any additional sugars, flavour enhancers or conservatives.
Another big advantage is that you can quickly prepare smoothies yourself and adapt them to your taste. A hit on children's birthday parties (besides muffins and other delicacies), where you can dilute the corresponding fruit smoothies with up to 60% water. So they are still tasty and refreshing and the fructose level does not shoot through the blanket. 😉
Smoothies are available in all possible variations, flavours and colours. In principle you can simply puree and taste fruits, leafy vegetables, garden herbs, tea, yoghurt, milk (also coconut milk) according to your taste. Simply delicious!

Smoothie - Kiwi, Orange, Banana
I personally added a peeled finger-width slice of a ginger tuber. Fresh ginger promotes blood circulation and lactate breakdown in muscle tissue, so goodbye sore muscles with this delicious after-workout smoothie. 😉
Take 4 kiwis, 3 oranges, 1 banana and some ginger and peel and puree the ingredients. Then you pour the delicious creamy drink into a glass and enjoy it.
Smoothie - strawberry, banana, coconut milk
For this, strawberries are best taken from the freezer. Gladly still frozen with the other ingredients puree.
This creates a kind of fruity good milkshake. Very tasty!
Smoothie - Orange , Apple
Press the oranges (juice oranges). Puree the apples and ginger and mix with the orange juice.
Finally, fill a third of the glass with crushed ice and fill the glass with juice. Stir briefly, done!
