A smoothie is a drink made out of blended fresh fruit; it can also contain ice, sweeteners such as honey or sugar, milk, ice cream and/or yoghurt. Similar to milkshake in consistency it is often referred to as its healthy variation. This type of drink started to come out during the 1930′s in the United States West Coast and it was initially based on Brazilian recipe. During those days the popular ones are the banana and pineapple smoothie variants. Then in mid-1960 there was resurgence in macrobiotic vegetarianism and smoothies became really popular as it was served in health food stores and restaurants and the rest was history.
For this recipe it won’t be as healthy as the original smoothie as I always use vanilla ice cream instead of yoghurt, but trust me this will make any bad day turn into good.
