Top 8 Superfood Smoothies You Should Eat Every Day to Lose Weight

The best part? They’re delicious. 
FACT CHECKED BY Christopher Roback

Smoothies are a great way to meet your daily requirements for fruit and vegetables. So why blend instead of juice? "By consuming blended fruits and vegetables instead of juices, we can retain the fiber found in these foods instead of removing it as juicing does," according to Penn State Extension. "This leads to less food waste and increases satiety, or fullness, compared with drinking fruit and vegetable juices. Fiber is also a beneficial nutrient for digestive and heart health, which many of us do not adequately consume." Here are eight superfood smoothies you should eat every day to help with weight loss and overall health.
