What are smoothies?
Smoothies are a popular health drink that have evolved and have come a long way over the years. The international smoothie industry is a multi-billion dollar income generator, with the US market garnering sales of more than $2 billion a year.
This thirst-quenching blended drink did not originate from the United States. Mediterranean and Eastern countries have long been enjoying pureed fruits drinks. Even South and Latin America have this kind of drink as part of their diet before we even knew it existed.
Making smoothies only became popular in the US when blender was invented by Steve Poplawski in 1930s.
