Building a Better Smoothie

First Paragraph:
Smoothies can be a great option for a healthy, on-the-go breakfast, snack or dessert for kids and adults. Be cautious, though. Not every smoothie is a nutritious choice. Some are loaded with sugar, fat and extra calories. Choose your smoothie ingredients wisely to make a healthy addition to your daily diet. The ingredients you choose influence the nutrient content of your smoothie. A smoothie that includes healthy ingredients like vegetables, fruits, protein, dairy or “dairy alternative,” and fiber is nutrient-rich and abundant in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and more.
