Are smoothies bad for you?

Many smoothie chains put ingredients in their smoothies that are not at all healthy! Some popular chains use things like sherbert and sugar water in their “smoothies”.
This makes them sweet, but not at all healthy for you!
This is the main reason that I love making my own smoothies because I can control the ingredients in them and I know exactly what my family and I are eating and drinking.
Are drinking smoothies healthy?
The smoothies that I make use whole ingredients and foods that my family considered healthy!
Most of my smoothies do not contain added sugar or sweeteners of any kind (although a few do contain just a bit).
The combination of whole, real ingredients and no added sweeteners equal a healthy smoothie in my opinion that is perfectly healthy to drink every single day!
If you are purchasing smoothies made at a restaurant or chain, you need to look carefully at the ingredients in order to determine for yourself if the ingredients are healthy or not. (spoiler alert: many are not!)
