Fruit smoothies and fresh-juice drinks provide some of the most nutritious options for dieters. A substantial smoothie is an easy way to have a fast meal loaded with vitamins and fiber. Unlike foods high in animal fat and snacks, these fruit-based drinks are already separated from their fiber content and can be easily digested.

Enjoy the benefits of fruits by adding them to your daily meal plans. A good source of hydration, smoothies also supply creative options for meal planning with seasonal fruits like blueberries, apples and kiwis.

One important way smoothies help you lose weight is by inspiring a full feeling. Packed with fiber, essential fats and soy or whey protein (optional), these smoothies can keep you full for hours, making you less likely to indulge in junk food. If you make your fruit smoothies with yogurt, they'll keep you full for longer and pack a calcium punch.
