Smoothies are a fresh and easy way to nourish your body with the essentials. You can find a smoothie shop around every corner, and many restaurants have smoothies on their menus. It is also super easy to make smoothies at home. All you need is a blender! You just throw some of your favorite fruit into the blender, add yogurt or juice, and mix it together!

People love to put frozen fruits and colorful vegetables in their smoothies. In the past, people used frozen fruit to decorate cakes and desserts, but in modern times, the frozen fruit industry has grown because so many people buy bags of fruit for their smoothies. Some people even incorporate wheatgrass into their daily regimen! If you can’t handle the taste of wheatgrass, you can always chase it with a glass of sweet orange juice!

Jessica and Dominique are talking about smoothies. Find out what they think in today’s English lesson.

Jessica:  So, Dominique, I am trying to incorporate smoothies into my daily regimen. But I don’t know if I like them.

Dominique:  They’re so easy to make. I have one every day. I get my essentials, my vitamins. It’s low calories. It’s just delicious.

Jessica:  I just don’t find them very tasty. Maybe, I need to get together with you, and we can look up some recipes because I feel like I’m not getting enough calories. I am so hungry after I have my smoothie that it’s not worth it.

Dominique:  But that’s the weight lost part of it. I mean, it fills you up, and you lose weight. Apples, carrots, celery… kale…

Jessica:  Do you use wheatgrass, too?

Dominique:  I do a shot of wheatgrass but not all the time.

Jessica:  That’s so scary to me. It really intimidates me.

Dominique:  You have to do it in a shot, and then you have to chase it with orange juice. It’s the only way.

Jessica:   That’s making my tummy turn. I don’t know if I can handle a smoothie a day.

Dominique:  I swear to you they’re tasty. Come over to my house. I’ll make one for you.

Jessica:  OK, that sounds like a plan. Sounds good!

Jessica doesn’t know if she likes smoothies. She wants to incorporate them into her daily regimen but doesn’t think they are tasty. Whenever she makes a smoothie and drinks it, it never fills her up. She always feels hungry afterwards. Drinking a smoothie everyday intimidates Jessica.

Dominique drinks smoothies everyday. She thinks they are easy to make. She uses apples, carrots, celery, and even wheatgrass. She tells Jessica that, if she doesn’t like the taste of something, she can chase it with orange juice. She tells Jessica to come over to her house so she can show her how to make smoothies.

Do you drink smoothies? What kinds of fruits and vegetables do you put in your smoothies?
