Is it a Smoothie or a Milkshake?

Some people are confused and think that smoothie and milkshake are one and the same. Not surprising since they are both blended beverages could have the same components like fruits and dairy products. The difference lies in the base.

Smoothies are typically made using (real) fruit or vegetable. Milk and yogurt can be added and sometimes grains and nuts. They can be a meal on their own as they can be quite filling and contain essential nutrients.

Milkshakes, on the other hand, has more dairy product like milk or ice cream. You can add fresh fruits for flavor but most of the time fruit syrups are used. It is really more of a beverage that you have with a meal. It is also normally served with whipped cream on top.
