Smoothies are a fruit dance party in your mouth. They're filled with frozen fruits, fresh fruits and fruit juices, but don't contain any milk or yogurt. Shakes, on the other hand, usually contain milk, yogurt, ice cream, et cetera. (Pretty easy to remember since 'shakes' is derived from 'milkshakes'.)

Then, is a smoothie a shake?

Originally it consisted of fruit pulp, mixed with sugar and ice, but in recent years any juice or shake containing a frozen fruit or yogurt, or ice cream, is considered a smoothie.

Secondly, do smoothies have milk in them?

A smoothie often has a liquid base such as water, fruit juice, plant milk, and sometimes dairy products (milk, yogurt, ice-cream or cottage cheese). A smoothie using dairy milk is similar to a milkshake, which typically has no or less fruit and uses milk, ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Are milkshakes good for you?

A new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that consuming certain types of milkshakes helps people stay satiated between breakfast and lunch, leading to a lower caloric intake throughout the day. In other words, milkshakes may actually help you lose weight.

Is a smoothie healthier than a milkshake?

The healthier options will eventually provide you with sufficient nutrients. Hence, smoothies are rich in carbs and low in fat because they are made from real fruits and vegetables. They are preferred to be a healthier option among the two. Milkshakes are quite rich in fat and sugar content, unlike smoothies.
