3 Fruits to Try in Your Next Smoothie, Honolulu, Hawaii

A smoothie is a delicious, healthy afternoon snack or meal alternative, plus the ingredient combinations are seemingly endless. You can mix and match fruits in numerous ways to create unique flavors. If you’re looking to explore new options, you’ll find plenty of inspiration below with these tasty and healthy fruits.

3 Healthy Smoothie Ingredients

1. Cherries

Cherries deliver a familiar, sweet taste that blends well with other fruits and natural sweeteners. They’re low in calories and contain plenty of protein, fiber, and vitamins A and C. They also have antioxidants, and studies show they may help with inflammation, lowering blood sugar levels, and reducing the risk of heart disease. Try a cherry-based smoothie at your favorite healthy restaurant the next time you dine out.

2. Oranges

3. Blueberries

Blueberries have long been known as superfoods, which is why they deserve a spot in your next smoothie. They’re delicious, low in calories, and in a small serving, you’ll receive fiber, vitamins C and K, manganese, and small amounts of other essential nutrients. They’re also high in antioxidants, may protect against cancer and high blood pressure, and generally improve cardiovascular health.
