Smoothies for Dessert

Although you might drink smoothies for the health benefits they offer, it is good to sometimes get off the beaten track and try something else. These are the smoothies that are prepared not only for the nutritional value they provide but primarily for the drinking pleasure they offer. Bear in mind though that these drinks can be calorie-laden and can have their fair share of fat content; they can even be considered as a dessert treat. Hence, they are not for you if you are watching your weight. Nevertheless, they are the most delicious kinds of smoothies around.
