Smoothies as a Healthy Snack
Smoothies can be made any number of ways but the most common is ice, milk, honey/sugar, and fruit. Those who are into the internal health of their body might also include greens such as cucumbers and spinach or anti-oxidants like raspberries and blueberries. Any combination of fruits and vegetables can be used.
I don't not agree with liquid diets per see as our bodies need something to digest. Such diets do result in amazing weight loss but often come with muscle loss as well. A better approach is to augment your normal diet with a smoothie. For example, oatmeal breakfast, smoothie lunch, and a lean meat supper.
You may also consider putting protein in your smoothie. Adding protein in your diet does have an additive impact on muscle gain and overall health. Try and look for a reasonable protein that is easy to digest and use. Personally, I like to use hemp protein from Trader Joes but there are many others on the market you may like.
