Smoothies can be a really healthy breakfast and give you a boost of energy for your day ahead. The only thing that matters is, of course the ingredients! The ingredients being used in your smoothie give the real nutritional value to the drink.
If the smoothie only contains some amounts of fruit and the rest of it is ice cream or whipped cream it might have high levels of calories but if it is made up of more vegetables or fruits and less carb-rich foods, it will turn out to be really healthy.
