When I went for first time to TGI Friday in Trinidad & Tobago to hang out with my co-workers after working hours I did not feel like drinking alcohol... and the waitress introduced me to the nicer and refreshing no alcoholic beverages, the Smoothie, since that I got a king of addictive to the drinks, it is so nice to drink it, the fruity flavor and the variate is enormous, its allow any combination. The fruity icy feeling in your mouth make you ask for more and it is not that heavy like a milkshake so you may end drinking at least two.
The Smoothie" (also known as a "smoothy"), is a blended chilled, sweetened beverage made from fresh fruit or a commercial smoothie ready made preparation. In addition to fruit or vegetables, the smoothie contain crushed ice or frozen fruit, some of the are made with yogurt. The smoohthie have a milkshake-like Constancy and is thicker than other fruit drinks. Unlike milkshake the smoothie do not contain ice cream but it can contain milk or yogurt.
You can use any type of fruit but the most popular flavour that you can find in restaurants are mango-peach, banana-strawberry, mango, kiwi and berries, a many more... but also if you like to try eating veggies in a different way you can also prepare smoothies made of pumpkin, broccoli and other veggies.
