What is the difference between a shake and a smoothie?
We often get confused between shakes and smoothies. We often consider them the same things. So, don’t get confused, we clear this out for you:
Smoothies have a smooth texture and thick consistency whereas, milkshakes are not that thick.
We can take smoothies as a meal because it contains seeds, nut butter, fruits, and dairy products which keep you filling for a longer time and loaded with essential nutrients but, we can’t do it for the shakes because they generally contain milk, ice cream, flavored syrups, ice cream or some essence which cannot keep you full for a longer time. We can take shakes but accompany them with some other breakfast items for a complete breakfast.
