Everybody has their own favorite drink. Some like to start their day with coffee, some with tea and some, who have a very healthy approach towards life like to start their day with healthy drinks. These are my favorite kind of people, I have to say. Because I believe if there’s one drink you’re having in a day, let it be a healthy one! Gone are the times when there weren’t many options to opt for and one had to forcefully consume healthy drinks if they had to.
With so many nutritionists out there, it has become so much easier to choose your favorite drink according to the taste and liking. I have been getting my hands on some really experimental recipes for smoothies to boost my energy levels as well as my immune system. Moreover, I also like the glow on the skin that some of the drinks offer. Here are my favorite ones along with the benefits and recipes so you can take advantage of these drinks fully!

Mango – Apricot Smoothie:
Before getting to know about this smoothie, I had heard of apricot as a scrub more than as a fruit! Apricot has a lot of health benefits. Apart from a smoothie, eat and enjoy this fruit as much as you can during its season. Apricot, mango, and milk along with vanilla extract make it a sweet drink. However, some people prefer drinking adding a few drops of lemon to add a hint of tangy flavor to it.
