Smoothie is a blended, chilled, sometimes sweet beverage made from fresh fruit or vegetables. Many smoothies include crushed ice, frozen fruit, honey or frozen yogurt, although some smoothies are 100% fruit. Smoothies are marketed to health-conscious people, and some restaurants offer add-ins. It became available in the United States in the late 1960s when ice cream vendors and health food stores began selling them. By the 1990s and 2000s, smoothies became available at mainstream caf├ęs and coffee shops, and in pre-bottled versions at supermarkets.
