Confused Between Smoothie and Milkshake?

People consider them same. However, they’re quite different from each other in terms of preparation as well the consistency.

Smoothie

Smoothies are quite famous and loved by kids and adults alike. Apart from this, smoothies are a great go-to option for people who cannot drink milkshakes due to lactose intolerance. Creating smoothies is synonymous to innovation, you can choose a variety of flavors and yogurts of your choice. 

The reason why it is named as a ‘smoothie’ is because of its smooth texture and consistency.

Milkshake is a sweet beverage which has more of dairy content in comparison to smoothies. What makes this yummy delight different from the rest is its numerous toppings like cut fruits, whipped cream, marshmallows, candies and more.

Milkshake usually contains milk and ice cream. It contain ample of fruits and additional flavors. We add chocolate, strawberry syrups, malt syrup, sugar syrup etc. to sweeten it . Whereas, smoothie contains blended yogurt, fruits, seeds and purees.

Milkshakes can’t be consumed as a meal whereas smoothies can be taken up as a meal replacement since they are rich in various minerals and vitamins.

Milkshakes are quite rich in fat and sugar content, unlike smoothies. Smoothies are rich in carbs and low in fat because they are made from real fruits and vegetables.
