How to make Strawberry Smoothie
A smoothie (alternatively spelled smoothee or smoothy) is a blended and sometimes sweetened beverage made from fresh fruit, vegetables and, in special cases, chocolate or peanut butter. In addition to fruit, many smoothies include crushed ice, frozen fruit, honey or contain syrup and ice ingredients. They have a milkshake-like consistency that is thicker than slush drinks. They can also contain milk, yogurt, low fat or cottage cheese, ice cream, lemon water or tea. Smoothies are often marketed to health-conscious people, and some restaurants offer add-ins such as soy milk, whey powder, green tea, herbal supplements, or nutritional supplement mixes.
The electric blender gave birth to the smoothie in the United States. Smoothies became widely available in the United States in the late 1960s when ice cream vendors and health food stores began selling them. By the 1990s and 2000s, smoothies became available at mainstream cafés and coffee shops and in bottled versions at supermarkets all over the world.
