Over the last few years the Circo2 popularity of healthy drinks has been on the rise especially fresh juices and smoothies made from fruit and vegetables. As more and more people lead healthy lifestyles so it has become fashionable for juice bars to open on the high streets. However, not all of these will provide you with a drink that is wholesome. It is because of the rise in the popularity of health drinks that you will find many food outlets and supermarkets filling fridges full of the readymade versions of smoothie drinks today.
The problem has arisen that although these products may be labelled as being healthy they use only frozen fruit syrups or denatured ingredients to make them and buying these you won't be sure of what you are really getting. In many cases these products to ensure that they have a long shelf life contain high levels of sugar in them. Of course the ones you buy at your local food outlet are convenient they won't provide you with the same quality drink if you were to make it yourself.
To further add to the confusion Janet Street Porter who appeared on the Gordon Ramsay show "The F Word" attacked smoothies for not being healthy but for being fattening. But those people who visit small independent juice bars or make their own smoothies and juices at home won't have this issue as they are perfectly suitable to help natural weight control.
