Smoothies recipes for those wanting to make healthy fruit drinks as part of a breakfast meal or for anytime of the day are becoming more and more popular as consumers worldwide begin to realise the potential health benefits. Ingredients such as strawberry’s, banana, mango, passion fruit and pineapple can be blended and used in drinks to start off a health conscious day. Perhaps one of the most popular reasons for people looking to pre-blend a smoothie is the fact that they can take it with them to work, school or just about anywhere and consume it on-the-go.
Further ingredients used in smoothies recipes to produce healthy fruit drinks are blackberry’s, blueberry’s, raspberry’s, pomegranate and apple, along with others such as cranberry or pear. Different blends will please different tastes and what may be enjoyed by one consumer is often detested by another so it is important to experiment with different ingredients and flavours. An increasing amount of retailers around the world are realising the demand for health drinks in the market place and stocking pre-made smoothie drink products in their stores and franchises.
Change seems to be taking place globally amongst consumers who are shopping with a more health conscious mind and it looks as though carbonated drinks sales are set to drop in time as shoppers seek out healthier products. Blends, flavours and formats are evolving on a daily basis as large beverage companies continue to experiment. Buying pre-made blends is convenient if you can find flavours you enjoy at the local shops but we feel it is more fun to invent your own smoothies recipes and experiment with different ingredients to create healthy fruit drinks for you and the family at home in the blender.
