Shake Vs. Smoothie
While these two look rather similar, their texture actually varies. The taste is also more distinguishable. Another thing is the ingredients used in making them.
Of all the shakes available in the world, the basic description of a shake is it is creamy and milky. Shake uses cream as its base. Usually, shakes have a thick texture because of the dairy ingredients. Flavors of shakes are also more tailored for sweet-tooths. It is sweeter and uses flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and caramel.
Shake is a good post-workout drink because it helps the body replenish its lost glucose and at the same time refreshes the body because of its cool temperature.
A smoothie is healthier in a sense because it uses fresh fruits and vegetables as its main ingredients. It is easier to make because most of its ingredients are easy to prepare. It only needs frozen fruits and some liquid to go with the solids.
Smoothies are the best pre-workout because it is packed with vitamins and minerals that can help the muscles to efficiently work. Smoothies are also recommended breakfast substitute because it is easy to make and its nutrients can equate to almost a complete meal. That is without the calorie of a whole meal.
